Wow, I think that was the hotel I stayed in – at least the room looks the same. It’s not a good place to stay if you’re claustrophobic.

Those things remind me of hyperbolic chambers. At least they’re better than these ‘homes’ in Hong Kong.

Your planes should be sharp enough to sneak up and kill you in your sleep.

Me again! well afer reading the comments and being instructed not to watch the first 2 minutes I went back and checked out what I was missing.

Motel room yep thats a huge one normally only half that size for Nip B&Bs, Although China lumbering_ on has it covered
No mention of the driverless trains at the airport another nip interesting experience.
The Sandy Nelson group is almost as bad as my benchtop thicknesser operating.
The nips are certainly a unique craftsman group in regard to both wood work and metal fabrication thats for sure.
Hey I think I saw Pat Morita at 2:44 to 2:48.
The wood planing well its again unique, reminds me of doctors preparing skin grafts. Candy would like it.
Tomorrow I will “sharpen up” my plane and see if I can get a qualifying entry shave, all a bit doubtful though!
Wish me luck …drum roll …I am gone again.

Forget lazagna, just had Chinese take away…

OK, let me be the one to ask that onerous question… Would those shavings suffice as a sensitive “sheath” for your woodie?
