Bare feet in the shop would save me a lot of money on foot wear. And not have a workbench would certainly free up some much needed floor space!

My shop looked just like that a few weeks ago with all those offcuts piling up under and around the TS. I should have gone barefoot and tiptoed around them :p. Took me two full days of cleaning to get back to some semblance of sanity.

I guess you can’t help but be impressed by the what these guys achieve and how they go about it even if it’s over the top unconventional for us here in the West.

I love how they countersink their screws by simply gouging a hole with the Phillips bit in the chuck. No time wasted there. ;-)

Evidently Franklin hasn’t got his email address, or he’d have been smearing some Titebond on those joints before he double tapped them. I imagine the 2 screws per corner keeps twist down.

I saw one where he was using the TS once, still no idea if there is a jointer, or he just whacks them with something sharp (banana knife) to get them trued up.

I saw a tape measure, but it just laid on the floor, never have seen anything near a square to check corners.

His ability to work in the adverse is pretty good though.

WOW!!! Those guys work fast and are accurate in every step to build cabinets. But working on the floor, and no shoes would kill me….!! My bad back couldn’t handle that, and being old and fat don’t help any…...:)). Good video.

I had a Vietnamese guy in the shop for 20+ years. Grew up there, came here when he was 35ish. He was an amazing stair builder. Not the most refined guy. He wasn’t allowed to touch the more intricate stuff.lol!
But simple, straight forward work methods. He complicated nothing and was VERY systematic. Moved quickly and confidently. He was a machine.
Had a hell of a time getting him to wear hard toes….thought they were stupid. No issue with light shoes though.
He had an issue with clothes though. I came back to the shop on more than a few occasions and he’d be only wearing shoes and shorts. Had to give him hell.
One day he started wearing coveralls all the time and I asked him why he was wearing them now since he didn’t like to wear clothes?
He said in his big rotten toothed grin with a thick accent…...I not wearing any clothes :)

I spent several months in Vietnam as a combat vet. I saw them people everyday while there, and I never saw them wear anything but pajamas and sandals…..most with no footwear at all….In the jungles, the Vietcong wore sandals made out of car tires….. Once we found a whole hospital under ground, with medical supplies and beds….In one corner of the cave there were sewing machines set up, and the Vietcong women made the sandals and black pajamas, and tons of rice in bamboo baskets…..!! In towns and villages, I saw no one with shoes or boots…!! They looked just like the guys in the video you posted….!!

I know one thing: They could build deadly booby traps, and well thought out schemes to hurt or kill someone…!!
