So, for all my box making buddies out there, I thought this video I just found today would really speak to you, especially the hand tool purists. This Japanese woodworker steps you through his build from beginning to end, and it’s a fascinating look into some really interesting techniques and some amazing hand tool woodworking skill. Enjoy!

Beautiful video Jerry. The smell of the BLO comes back to me from a long way away, somewhere along about the seventh grade – to many eons ago !

Yeah thanks for posting this video Jerry. Now I’m depressed lol Just kidding, but that kid is talented and appears to be a seasoned woodworker at a very young age. What at first glance looks like a simple project, wasn’t simple at all. It was fun to watch.

Interesting you should say that, whenever I lose my groove, this type of stuff really gets me back in the right mindset.

I know how you feel, it’s inspiring and terrifying all at the same time.

Well Andre, if this box represents “simple stuff” to you, then my hat’s off to you! ;-)

I know I could probably kludge my way through it with just hand tools, but I’m not sure I’d get as good a result
