    Some Great Japanese Carpentry Videos



    I think I've posted videos from this channel before, but these ones really caught my eye.

    I love they way they use the natural arc of the wood to add strength.



    Boy that last one was a tight fit.

    That was cool, but I want to see how they layout and cut those joints.

    Power is not taken. It is given. Who have you given yours to? Hmmmm?

    Here is a boss teaching his employee to do a basic layout, I know most off you cannot understand him (I'm struggling with some of the vocabulary) but I think you can still get something from it.



    The beginning is a bit slow, but about the 3 min mark it all starts to make sense.

    The marking tool he is using is called a Sumisashi
