A wood working craft from Japan

The amazing things we can learn about through videos...

Today I share a YouTube of Tsugite, the Japanese method of joining with wood with no adhesives or screws. I wish it wasn't in a speeded up voice and motion, but one can pause to try to figure it out. There is now a program to teach one how to build these wonderful joints.

I admit to just having appreciation of this craft, and no urge to actually build with it.


Today's quote:

We all have the extraordinary coded within us, waiting to be released.

  1. Hello,
    They look like puzzle pieces, interesting. I have seen some log cabins being built using huge logs that fit together perfectly. Take care, have a happy day!

  7. How interesting, Barbara! They remind me of 3 D puzzle pieces my children liked to figure out. I've always admire dovetail joints on furniture. I can see how these type of joints would be highly coveted in the world of finely crafted furniture.
