    I like the rustic nature of this project. It is in keeping with traditional Japanese tool boxes in that they do not use finishes of any kind in their tool boxes. They are meant to be rustic and functional. Artistic in the sense of the craftsman’s skill without it being an intended show piece. This was a very good expression of that spirit. Thank you for sharing it with us. I’m inspired ! 😀…again !

    I don’t think I have ever seen wood so soft before. You could probably look at it wrong and it would break.

  3. James Carpenter on May 25, 2022 at 7:52 pm

    If you take a bar of soap and rub a nice film on the sides of your saw, it will stop that high pitched squeal when you are using it.

  4. Richard Seabrease on May 25, 2022 at 7:52 pm

    I really love your approach with simple tools and only a few of them. How many tools do you have for doing your hand work?

  5. Pascal Pozzi on May 25, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    Bonne continuation… (du massacre……) troll

  6. AFrolicsomeMind on May 25, 2022 at 7:56 pm

    I’m about to learn woodworking or at least I say I am. I took a safety course at our local woodshop and was overwhelmed by all of the machines, which are from the 60s and 70s. I cannot believe what you just did with these tools alone. Thanks for this! This will help me so much!

  7. Leo Arias on May 25, 2022 at 7:57 pm

    Just want to say, if you are a beginer cArpENter and will eyeball the entire project dont use Japanese Woorworking or we might have another Pearl Harbor on our hands, just because of you. SO SAD

  8. Oliver Burns on May 25, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    Made me feel easier for approaching woodworking. Too easy to get lost in making everything 100% perfect

  9. Ľubomír LuLo Lošonský on May 25, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    I think japanese woodworking is about perfection not about simplicity.

  10. 플랫폼바디 on May 25, 2022 at 8:01 pm

    I like this guy… not very perfect but it’s more realistic

  11. K. S. on May 25, 2022 at 8:05 pm

    I’m a German-trained journeyman in the US. It’s great to remind myself that everything doesn’t have to be line to line perfect to work. Fun box. I laughed out loud when you said, just eyeball it!

  12. Thinking Monkey on May 25, 2022 at 8:05 pm

    First I’d like to say that your Japanese woodworking skills are better than mine ever have been or ever will be and no, I don’t have any woodworking videos of my own. I also concede that you did point out many times that this was a quicky chisel toolbox, was not traditional, and that it serves its purpose just fine. With that said here are my negative comments (what video would be complete without them?) 1) A lot of times the difference between amateur and professional is not God-level skills or super high-dollar equipment but being careful what you’re doing. You’re not measuring carefully, cutting carefully, or basically anything carefully. 2) What you call "good fit" (1:24), my Grandpa would have called "holes big enough to throw a cat through". Luckily for all of us, he’s not around to critique our work. ‘Thumbs up’ vote for your video, nonetheless.

    Lastly, will you PLEASE sharpen that pencil? That rubbing wood on wood doesn’t make a very good mark as you may have noticed (or maybe not).

    Yes.. only a 3 mm gap! 😮

  14. PEDRO RUGELES on May 25, 2022 at 8:08 pm

    where can I get these japan tools

  15. Bert on May 25, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    Where did you get all the tools?

  16. Adam on May 25, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    Well now I have a clue!

  17. TimTrOn3000 on May 25, 2022 at 8:10 pm

    this is pretty rad. i just really wish you cut the shoulders of the dovetail with the ryoba you had right on hand. those fuzzy lines really irked me, though i tried not to let it

  18. Miguel B on May 25, 2022 at 8:13 pm

    Impeccable!!! 👍

  19. Taylor Albrecht on May 25, 2022 at 8:15 pm

    This was amazing and thank you!

  20. Kennie Talvitie Svedlin on May 25, 2022 at 8:18 pm

    nice video! it would be fun if you wrote down what the tools you used in this video are called

  21. Josh M. on May 25, 2022 at 8:18 pm

    Perfect!! This has inspired me.

  22. bighand69 on May 25, 2022 at 8:18 pm

    I use mainly soft wood for finishes that are out of human contact such being up high but on display. It can be really easy to use and some softwoods can have a beautiful finish.

  23. Everin on May 25, 2022 at 8:20 pm

    I think the part I enjoyed most about this video is your attitude. As a "perfectionist" I just suffer a lot so your video is good for my learning to not be so. Thanks.

  24. Sean Mccabe on May 25, 2022 at 8:21 pm

    Hi, I love your videos to begin with. I am curious, do you have plans for making a Zabiki? (don’t shoot me for the spelling). Also, can you explain in a video how to choose good used chisels?? I am looking for timber chisels. Japanese…..

  25. MrGoodDeeds3 on May 25, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    Very entertaining funny and informative. Thanks… liked and subscribed. 😊

  26. Hālian the Protogen on May 25, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    Nice Final Fantasy font

  27. Mosca Woodworking on May 25, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    that wood is identical on what I buy here in Italy under the name of Paulownia…. I think your first impression was the right one

  28. CMK on May 25, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    Im a complete beginner, you wouldnt happend to have a sort of print out plan for this ?

  29. Tuffjobs UK on May 25, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    Looks great. Bare footed carpentry!

  30. Carlos Santos on May 25, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    i always learn something – thanks

  31. Norman Jeckel on May 25, 2022 at 8:29 pm

    Looks like Butternut wood ?

  32. I'm out on May 25, 2022 at 8:29 pm

    The catalpa i know in Alabama/USA is very dense, heavy and rot resistant. It was grown in the American colonies for fish bait and fence posts. In certain months moths lay eggs on the big leaves and the multi colored worms are a favorite for fishing in the local creeks and rivers. I have a stump on a concrete slab out back of my shop i use for ax work that’s at least 25 years old.

  33. HB VIDEO on May 25, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    Very nice 👍

  34. Sean White on May 25, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    Great enthusiasm and demonstration of accurate carpentry skills. Thanks. It’s pronounced Re-yo-bi nor Rai-yo-bi

  35. tony kalioros on May 25, 2022 at 8:31 pm

  36. Soofi Hasan on May 25, 2022 at 8:32 pm

    Beautiful work, i love the simplicity of the process, yet the box came out looking v pretty indeed. Thank you for sharing. Respect from Pakistan

  37. CowboyDave1812 on May 25, 2022 at 8:33 pm

    Where did you learn Japanese woodworking techniques?

  38. chaba49 on May 25, 2022 at 8:33 pm

    The guy is no carpenter . He might have all the tools but hes all over the place.

  39. PiousMinion on May 25, 2022 at 8:33 pm

    It looks and sounds like you’re making it out of wood-colored styrofoam. lol

  41. Ste Co on May 25, 2022 at 8:35 pm

    Lovely little box

  42. ernie kleinman on May 25, 2022 at 8:36 pm

    LOoks like siberian elm I bought from NW MO. but its harder than catalpa

  43. steher on May 25, 2022 at 8:37 pm

    The tite says beginning. I didnt know that it meant that you were the beginner.

  44. ron newton on May 25, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    great box..

  45. ROSALINDA Estrada on May 25, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    I like your little box! Do you think I can used the same pattern on a 35 inch to 25 inch and 10inches deep? I have some recycled wood and I want to used it as a storage and a cushion on top.

  46. Camelazo on May 25, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    japanese are crying right now!!

  47. Zaur Cherchesov on May 25, 2022 at 8:45 pm

    Made sloppy. Not good. Сделано неаккуратно, на отъебись.

  48. Pascal Pozzi on May 25, 2022 at 8:45 pm

    Désolé, mais quel travail de cochon!!!

  49. Eduardo Lima on May 25, 2022 at 8:47 pm
