Rowland Custom Woodworking - Phillip Rowland : Seriously man, I've had a horrible day, but seeing your notification pop up just made my day. I'm always so inspired and at peace watching you work.

Jb B : Absolutely beautiful!  Chie your video was exceptional on this project.  Really enjoyed how your added a subtle bit of color (orange mushroom & the green on Shiro's nose).  Added another dimension to this video, Outstanding!

Teguh Liswanto : a hundred years from now this table will be in Christie’s or Sotheby’s.

Wood By Wright : So beautiful! I love the wedged tenon touch!

Givulinovich : In my dreams, my home would be fully Ishitani furnished. Your joinery always makes me smile. By the way, your saw horses are impressive. No wiggle at all.

Michelle Schry : Chie thank you for telling the story of each piece so beautifully. Your art is a perfect complement to the art of the craftsman.

tigahshark : I ALWAYS like before I watch cause I KNOW it’s good...

daniel dan : always glad to see Shiro making an appearance

diverhose : Beautiful, thank you for sharing. By the way, your TinTin doggie, Snowy is very cute.

William Lial : I really like the work of Ishitani Furniture. Clean, elegant, light and soft. A minimalism that is not cold, which brings the feeling of warmth and comfort.

The Art of Craftsmanship : Beautiful work again. It never gets old watching you make these pieces of art. You’re an inspiration.

Tony Miller : This may be my favorite piece that you've posted. Walnut is a rich and warm wood so the thick top with a square edge profile has a simple beauty and a commanding presence. The trestle style is inherently a bit rustic, but the sharp lines and tapers are quite modern in feel. The contrasting wedges in the cross-member's tenons are a perfect touch - subtlety decorative without being ornamental. I love everything about the design and execution of this piece. Thank you for sharing.

Gregory Peterson : Where carpentry , Artistry and meditation meets. Beautiful

me aul jazzer : I always get a kick out of watching your builds man. Japanese carpentry is so much more exciting & peaceful. As my carpentry teacher told me the other day: Japanese carpentry has being way a head of the world for hundreds of years.

greigo tee : Beautiful cinematography Chie

Burton's Attic : Great material selection and matching. Awesome camera work and the trestle joint 👍!

squallxgamer : Absolutely mesmerizing to watch you work as always.

B Z : Really nice work. The double wedged tenons and the base profiles look modern yet warm.

Ben Tyreman : 1:26 you can never have too many clamps

David BS : MalTorres. Tremendo maquena estas hecho.

Sean Simpson : That. Is. Beautiful. Wonderful work from a great craftsman. And completely without ego. Big respect to you.

0311yash : 美しい家具と映像。いつ見ても良いですね。

Baba G : Beautiful as always. My hope is people watch this and get inspired, to want to be meticulous and pay attention to the detail.That they get to absorb the work ethic & desire to bring precision to their work. The society we live in seems to celebrate mediocrity more and more and there is less and less desire to deliver quality product and service in any field. Thank you for sharing so generously. Always serene, calming and inspiring.

Gilson Antunes Pereira : Muito bom! Móvel de excepcional beleza. Parabéns!

Haze : Thank God there is 🌷Japan🌷in this world

Bart Brouwer : What a fine peace of furniture again! I love to watch your skills and I am impressed by the ease you do accomplish all this. Thanks to Chie for bringing the atmosphere of creating to live this way. The combination of filming, editing and music is great (and very relaxing).

theo theophanous : What glue do you use? Looks thick. Amazing build as always

Juguetero Arlequin : Hermoso, creo que cada pieza que creas es mas una escultura que un objeto funcional, pero eso es lo que los hace perfectos que ademas de bellos son de uso diario.

Arquidomos Medellin : siempre he estado ligado al trabajo de la madera, las formas de cepillar difieren mucho la oriental es hacia adentro la occidental es hacia afuera sacar la viruta,. me gusta mas la de hacia adentro pero el trabajo con madera es maravilloso felicitaciones

Efrain Enrique Arcaya Avila : Shiro is a poodle? Nice job, very very nice job

Christopher Ng : Chie、ナツキの技能を捕らえてくれてありがとう。あなたは、このような壮大な芸術作品を作ることにつながる愛と献身を真に私たちに示してくれる素晴らしい目を持っています。私は繰り返しあなたのビデオを見て、それはストレスの多い日に私を落ち着かせるのに役立ちます。私は困難な時を過ごしてくれてありがとう。 <3クリス
