Gift Certificate: Japanese Woodworking Introduction


Know an enthusiast for Japanese design or woodworking that you’d like to gift a class.  Gift certificates are a great option. Order here and we’ll send you a printed certificate to give as a gift. The recipient can select from available class dates.



Attendees to Japanese Woodworking Introduction will gain a broad understanding of how Japanese woodworking distinguishes itself from Western approaches during a two hour talk and demonstration. The session will include an overview of traditional hand tools used in a range of work scale, from making small objects to full size timber frame building. This will be followed by a brief demonstration of the use of all basic tools: nomi (chisel), kanna (plane), nokogiri (saw) and marking tools including sashigane (square) and sumitsubo (ink line).

Everyone will be invited to pull a Japanese plane and make a thin wood shaving! A short history will be given along with key design element and aesthetic preferences. Lastly, of course, joinery will be discussed with samples to handle.

Gift certificates are valid for 1 year from date of purchase.
