Hello! I am Takami Kawai, a Japanese carpenter. I enjoy woodworking at the Suikoushya in Kyoto.

In addition to repairing shrines and renovating old houses, we share fine woodworking with people, hold woodworking classes around the world, and hold joinery solo exhibitions.



Today, I will explain the theme “Making Wood Round using Japanese Hand Planes”. have fun! This video shows the basic idea of ​​making a round shape. If you know this idea, you can make round shapes of any size. A circle is very simple, but you need to know the principle to make the ultimate circle.



At Suikoushya, we share traditional Japanese woodworking techniques and skills. Since it is a small group system, we will provide guidance tailored to each individual’s skills, from beginners to woodworking professionals. Please join us!

I look forward to sharing fine woodworking with you.
