Road trip; Miki Hamono Kurabu meeting, now with moving pictures!

Hi Faithful reader.

This must be some kind of record, but here we are again, 3rd post in a week.

Are we having fun yet? I hope so. And today, I’m only going to take up a little of your time, about 5 minutes, for a couple of videos from the Miki Hamono club meeting.

First one is Mr. Takada flattening out a large cedar plank. First with cross wise and diagonal strokes, then heavy lengthwise strokes. I’m sorry I didn’t get video of him finish planing. I’m sorry I didn’t take as much video as I thought I did!

The second, one of the kezurokai members letting a few visitors try their hand at making very thin shavings. Pretty cool, and obviously easy for the folks planing. Surprisingly easy for the owner of the plane as well. ;)

The third, more of the same. So easy, a girl can do it!

(Sorry to the folk out there reading of the female persuasion. But let’s be honest here, young ladies are generally uninterested in the manual trades. Heck, young gentlemen are generally of the same mold, unless there’s a young lady in attendance…)

There might be a few more pictures, and maybe a little more writing.

But for now, that’s about it. Enjoy the videos, and thanks for reading, err, watching…
Stu.
