Detailed Description

Japanese Woodworking Tools: Their Tradition, Spirit and Use. Author, Toshio Odate

Japanese Woodworking Tools: Their Tradition, Spirit and Use is a fascinating look at a unique woodworking culture and philosophy. Odate's apprenticeship as a tategushi, or sliding door maker, during his boyhoood in Japan is the basis for a personal and insightful look at each traditional hand tool in the Japanese woodworker's tool box; reflecting on their origin, manufacture, and details on their care, use and maintenance. Traditional woodworkers can learn from Japanese Woodworking and this comprehensive study of the history, development and use of Japanese woodworking tools, provides detailed, first-hand information on how each tool is finished, tuned, sharpened, maintained and repaired by the craftsman who owns it. An all-time favorite.
