Japanese Plane

27 April 2014

Filming at the Wabi Sabi workshops

A fun afternoon last week spent filming Andy and Ivan at the Wabi Sabi workshop near Chichester. Andy spoke about the significance of Japanese woodworking tools, while Ivan demonstrated sharpening with Shapton Glass Series stones and did a bit of chisel work. Later on Andy demonstrated how to set up a plane, and showed off his planing techniques in pursuit of the perfect shaving from a piece of Cedar of Lebanon.
See the whole film once our cinematic genius James Aiken has had his way with it.
