    Make your own Veneer

    Saw this and wanted to share, this is some fine woodworking in my estimation. Anybody ever try it?
    I'm supposed to respect my elders, but its getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

    Wow. That's impressive. Perhaps Stu can translated some of the Japanese text.

    And as an aside, I wonder what Marketing genius came up with the name for that website. Snotr? Really?

    I've made plenty of veneer in my shop by re-sawing single boards. I wouldn't even attempt anything like that guy did!!! That's amazing!

    I've been watching a lot of those style videos lately of how things are done in Japan.

    I really love their woork bench as it's about as simple as it gets! Just pull up a piece of floor and get to work.

    I also love how they do their glue ups. None of those ridiculously priced bessy k clamps. Just a roll of what looks like string. Makes for easy storage too when done as you just roll it up.

    Wow, no wonder he had a mat. He must have been sitting there for a while

    You can see that type of plane in use at

    They hold wood planing competitions in Japan. This particular link includes three American competitors - whose results are good, but their form is terrible compared to the Japanese earlier in the video.
