A friend recently sent this amazing video to me, which blew my mind. This Japanese hand tool woodworker, Noboru Honma, uses traditional woodworking hand tools to create paper-thin end grain shavings with decorative parquet shapes. I hope you enjoy!

Any idea if there’s more too it than just a really really sharp plane to get those thin slices? I’m guessing the right choice of wood goes into it too, but those full width slices are amazing.

No idea! But those Japanese are so smart that they can figure out most things.

and they do it sitting on the floor. I think the Japanese planes are set up with a different angle and the blades are set farther back. also he is pulling the plane not pushing. watching him work just gets me excited to go out to the shop.
