Since we are talking about box making vids, and none of us to the north can watch this one, I remember someone posting a link to a Japanese woodworker who glued together bundles of basically sticks, then glued the bundles together to make a block maybe 6" thick by maybe 6" square and then he took a wooden plane and shaved veneer off the block across the end grain and used the veneer to add to the top of boxes. Does anyone remember that vid and can find it? I'd love to see it again.
Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
