    Just a thought here. Woodworking is influenced by culture and natural resources too. I believe 70% of Japanese woodworking is out of Pawlonia wood it is very abundant and it is a very friendly wood to work with I believe this to have an influence on their tools and workspace and bench. I love that they just work on that board and produce such beautiful well crafted cabinets or shelving and so on. The west uses a greater variety of hard and soft woods. Some are very challenging to work with. The tools are different and so are the metals for the tools. I love the contrast though I like to mix and learn from both like you

    Thank you for posting this video – I have wanted to order this book for quite a while and decided to do just that! I too was amazed to discover how far the Japanese advanced tools and techniques, since the origins in China originally. Keep up the good work.

    This woodworking book is really detailed, *TopFineWoodworking. Com* ! With the aid of this plan, I was able to use words, drawings, real images and different diagrams. It is really an informative product. I am presently making furniture together with my brother and thanks to this product, I feel like helping him is possible.?

    I didn`t plan to utilize this woodworking book, “pepe amazing plan” (Google it) but instead curious about it. I was truly impressed right after trying it. I was trying to learn more about the art of wood working, and was not dissatisfied. A lot of topics were covered, including everything from wood types to designing your workshop.
