We have all seen the art of yosegi where tiny pieces of colored wood are glued
tgether then (traditionally) a hand pane is used to shave off thin thin pieces
for veneering boxes and small items. This video show them using some machines,
so don’t look at that part. Go to about 3:50
for the giant upside down hand plane that they use to cut the thin pieces. I
big lever and a rope pull the piece across the blade while the assistant holds
the piece down.
Then at about 5:00 check the gluing set up - 2 steel octagons and cauls shaped
like barrel staves.
