Japanese Joinery – Advanced Mortise & Tenon

In this one day class builds on the foundation of the mortise and tenon class. We will dive into more involved variations. Namely wedged, tusked, fox with focus on the square pegged. The day will be filled with demonstrations, discussion of proportions, subtleties and applications while leaving ample time for hands-on practice!

You will gain an understanding of various more complex mortise and tenon joints.

An additional $20 materials fee will be required for each student at time of class.
