Chair making process


  1. I’ve been there, it’s the Miyazaki Chair Factory

  2. You right! How did you get there?

  3. Business trip. The company I work for has a partnership with the Australian
    distributor for some of their chairs. I was on holiday in Japan a few
    months ago so they organized for me to go and have a look

  4. that bandsaw is lovely

  5. Was the factory as quiet as it appears in the video, there was barely any
    noise in the sewing room despite the machinery in use? Nice chairs,
    Japanese production efficiency is impressive and the machinery looked very
    well engineered.

  6. What is the name of the company or where are these chairs sold?

  7. I almost see no dust! My room are dirtier doing nothing but keep it closed
    and this factory is cleaner. Impressive.

    There was 2 great time savers there for any woodworker 1: toothbrush glue
    applicator 2 : foam sponge oil applicator

    Efficient? Yes. Profitable? I’m sure. But not much soul.

  14. All the styling is circa 1970. Gets a bit stale.

  15. Timothy Duzenski Yeah… Imagine, *all* of their chairs had four legs, a
    back and a seat. Where’s the *creativity* in that?😏

  16. Timothy Duzenski. Do you know many chairs with souls?

  17. Where’s the craftsmanship in this stuff?

  18. actually the opposite. most chair manufacturing lines involves way less
    human work. this has more soul actually. (considering factories not
    workshops tho)

  19. Timothy Duzenski (Timmy D)

    aireoteddy – I dont believe i mentioned the chairs at all. The chairs
    actually are of a good quality and design. However, not the environment i
    would prefer to work in. This is why lean manufacturing doesnt catch on in
    the US like it does in other countries because it requires people to
    surrender self identity to the processes that the “few” create for them to
    execute. Just not my cup of tea. 🙂

  20. Yuck, so many robots it makes me sick.

  21. This is why soulful work is unprofitable. This is why actual woodworkers
    are poor.

  22. Needs a new title, drop “Japanese” and replace “made” with “mass produced
    in Japan”

    There were no traditional Japanese wood working methods or tools used there *at
    all*, it was all modern machines and techniques that can be found in any
    workshop pro-workshop in most countries.

    Came for Japanese wood working, ended up watching people doing exactly the
    same things as I did in college in England.

    Sort it out mate!

  23. Nah, the company would just use 457 visa workers,(because they can’t find
    any locals willing to be exploited). It would probably still cost $20k to
    buy though.

  25. ORDINARY woodworking shop? Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahah! If that’s
    ordinary…I’ll eat my hat.

  26. It’s so quiet…..

  27. my old qwerty phone has ergonomic styling and is supremely functional. fits
    my hand like a glove. maybe my hands are “too 1970”?

  28. I was expect a little old man with traditional tools making chairs like
    they did years ago. Wrong.

    Nah, i don’t use robots and i don’t pay other businesses to build my
    products, Also shipping wood is hard because it grows and shrinks with
    moisture and humidity so the fit would be less than perfect one it arrives.
    My work really would not even be worth the money i ask if it was made even
    partially in a factory.
    You could do it with wood and many companies do. But it won’t work as well
    as with clothes, and it would decrease the value of the product.

  31. +Birki gts
    that explains ikea’s success. artificial wood… metal joints… you
    should use their techniques with real wood. first get rich and then, do
    your art. maybe you are too special and important for this world. maybe
    everyone is too cheap and don’t deserve your product. or maybe reality and
    money is more important than pride.

  32. +Botha Lissom
    Im perfectly fine making just enough money to eat and live under a roof if
    it means i get to do what i love. There is a Danish company that is kind of
    doing what you suggest called Jysk, they are basically Danish Ikea, they do
    use real wood (Though it’s the cheapest specie there is).
    In the end, i don’t need to be rich, i just need to eat, and if i can do
    that im fine. But i will still complain about factories making it 90%
    impossible to get rich with traditional woodwork.

  33. +Birki gts
    i agree. in 200 years, oil and gas will be completely finished. that
    generation will inherit a polluted world full of plastic. they will know
    the value of resources and will appreciate a comfortable chair.

  34. +Botha Lissom

  35. Actually it’s Mid-Century Danish inspired so we are talking late 40s the
    50s and early 60s

  36. Strictly speaking yes you are right but the style was in vogue in the
    70’s at least in the USA. The heavily sculpted stuff is Sam Maloof
    influenced. There is some Nakashima influence in the less sculpted
    pieces. Don’t get me wrong the style is actually pretty good. However it
    gets tiring to see a lack of design evolution.

  37. This pleases my eyes

  38. much better than shity ikea chairs, they just snap before you sit

  39. Elan Jacobs do they have to waste a piece of plywood when making the tenon
    for the legs?

  40. +redneek24 The plywood jigs are reused over and over again so there’s no
    considerable waste there

  41. What glue is traditionally used in Japanese woodworking?

  42. Super cool shop tools.
    More stuff to add to my list of what I’m going to get when I win the lotto.

  43. Traditional Japanese woodworking generally doesn’t use glue, everything is
    made to fit tightly and is locked with wooden pegs

  44. There’s no way a modern industrial society can produce furniture this well
    at any reasonable scale if they kowtow to orientalist ideals of 18th
    century craftsmanship. You wouldn’t be surprised if you saw similar
    production methods being used in Maloof’s workshop, so why impose slower,
    less accurate methods on someone else just because they’re overseas? If
    Makoto Koizumi were making all these chairs by hand with kanna and nomi,
    he’d produce at most a few dozen per year. That doesn’t leave you time to
    design new chairs, it makes you a slave to a single design.

  45. +Don Johnson
    My point had nothing to do with any of that. My point was that there is
    nothing uniquely Japanese about this production method, you will find the
    same tools and process being used in factories across the globe, as was
    clearly stated in my OP, I was commenting about the shitty click bait
    title, not the video or anything shown in it.
