In our recent live event with Fine Woodworking contributing editors, Garrett Hack mentioned his visit to Japan. Here's one of the videos he was referring to. In it, he tries a Japanese handplane made by Ito San, a Japanese Master Carpenter. Looks like it was a fun visit, with some energized woodworkers (like himself).
