A youtube Surprise

I was just recuperating from the day, doing what I often do at the end of a hard day’s work — browsing woodworking videos on youtube, especially Japanese carpentry and furniture making videos.

Imagine my surprise, when pulling up a video on making a Japanese style toolbox, to find it was an excellent portrayal of a polissoir!  He does have the real deal in hand, and does an excellent job of demonstrating the tool.
