U.S Union labor bosses: SMH Reply Martin Erhard August 23, 2019 at 7:37 pm Really nice but also very time consuming Reply vinylsp August 23, 2019 at 10:36 pm Nobody is willing to pay the hourly rate for that kind of craftsmanship. That kind of workmanship is to be passed on to the generations to come. Both how to do it and how to appreciate it.

Reply 安荣 September 1, 2019 at 8:00 pm It’s a Chinese technique called 榫卯(sǔn mǎo), people started to use it 2500 years ago and its the major jointing technique of Chinese wood pieces, either small or big. Most of ancient wooden buildings and towers use this technique. It’s not responsible to say that Japanese people invented it, when they actually borrowed it, just like their characters.There’s an app called 榫卯(wood joints) made by Chinese people that shows how the entire thing works with fascinating 3D models to check out Reply papillon407 September 2, 2019 at 12:11 pm なぜジェネシスが日本の技術を紹介してるのだ？韓国車じゃないの？？俺の勘違い？ Reply Sakamoto September 2, 2019 at 3:57 pm 1:35 When you die in video games in reasonable way Reply PCS Show September 2, 2019 at 4:37 pm what's about trees??

September 6, 2019 at 3:09 pm I have been doing carpentry in the US for years…I would love nothing more than to go to Japan and be taught some REAL stuff from the master carpenters over there, like everything else they turn it into an art form. And to do most of that with hand tools and end up with CNC level precision is just crazy.
