I can sit and review Roubo for only so long, and when my computer wanders  the internet it finds amazing things.  You might be familiar with this particular video — I am aware of the Japanese planing contests but had not seen this one before — but I certainly got a kick out of it.

God bless the Japanese, they take any manifestation of excellence and turn it into an all consuming monomaniacal pursuit.
