  1. I actually screamed out when I saw the beautiful color the finish gave it. Amazing stuff, they are lucky to have it!

  2. a wonderful video. i must tell you though , you are missing the main concept of japanese design in general. it is all about functionality. we really don’t like seeing unnecessary design features that compromises usage. in this case it’s the joint that sticks out to the sides. japanese loves to use furnitures next to each other. your case will not be able to do so. tools and joining technique might be japanese inspired ones. but the design has nothing to do with japan. sorry to mention it. i hope the client likes it because that’s all it matters.

  3. great job man.. i love those side pin wedge things, and the wood choices.. great design!

  4. WOW Beautiful craftsmanship!!

    Oh great looking flag there in the background! (Former F-111A DCC)

  5. I agree with parillaworks, the feet/wedge detail is very nice. Also that natural finish enhances your craftsmanship, why guild the lily? OK you must do what the client wants, thank Heaven he didn't want it painted green!!!!! Elegant stuff.

  6. Just remember folks, They make "electric" tools that can do the same thing in less time. Welcome to the 21st century.

  7. Subscribed. Your work is inspiring, I love watching makers use primarily hand tools. I do not have the patience for it, so our shop is rather full of power tools. But nonetheless, it is relaxing and calming to watch this process. Also, your editing, sound, and personality are top notch. You will be one of the top youtube makers soon, there is no doubt.
