Competitive Wood Planing

Watch and marvel at what these craftsmen can do. The wood plane is a tool that woodworkers use to reduce flat surfaces. In Japan, the use of the wood plane is a competitive sport by masters of the craft. In the video, you can see them cut long slices of wood in sheets as thin as 9 microns! The dedication put to perfecting their craft is an inspiration for all of us.
