Asian style of furniture is something I’ve never pursued, could be because of where I was born and raised and the type furniture and cabinetry I was trained on and the supporter of our 70 year old family business.

I appreciate artist, especially artist in furniture making though and do have an appreciation for Asian furniture and the artist that bring it to life. It’s like no other and has it’s own place in the art world.

I found this furniture maker on youtube tonight looking for something else and have watched most of his videos and subscribed to his channel.

The simple lines of their furniture really appeals to me. That is the kind of stuff I would like to make when I grow up.

I too have seen his videos, and have decided I like his machines more then his work.
I don’t know what’s wrong with me.
I guess I’m set in my ways.

I grew up in the orient. I like to give my cabinetry an Asian Flair. One must be fully versed with the locking scarf joint to really craft true old world Asian furniture. They did not use much in the way of glue. Drawer joints were also pinned as well as dovetailed.
