Japanese Carpentry Workshop, Summer 2015

Our 2015 Japanese Carpentry workshop recently wrapped up, with beautiful results! Students learned the fine art of traditional Japanese joinery using Japanese hand tools.

Demonstration of the rip cut technique!

Use widening sticks to sight and set up your plane! The search for balance can be a long and arduous journey.

Interconnecting the handcrafted joints of the puzzle for a clean and harmonious display.


Complete, beautiful, and hand-crafted handrail.



Congratulations to the Japanese Carpentry Class of 2015!
