Somokjang - Korean Traditional Furniture Making Crafts   

06/01/2017

Like most people, we spend lots of time (way too much time) surfing the web, entranced by various videos. In Video Roundup, we offer some videos from all over the world that we found especially intriguing.

Here are two videos showing the craft of the Somokjang, literally "minor carpenter," a title given to a skilled person in making traditional furniture and other wooden objects and structures for daily use. Many commenters have marveled at the freehand sawing, but there is much to capture the imagination in this skilled technique of woodworking.
