I will explain OKURI ARI.
This is the most difficult level joinery used in suikoushya kyoto school.
This supports the sliding door rails.
This is a rail, nails cannot be used.
Half of it is a dovetail and it’s jointed.
Move half way.
Even if you look at this from above, you cannot imagine the structure inside.
You can learn how to make a joinery [OKURI ARI] with a free YouTube video! →https://youtu.be/WCS-Q5h-b_E



We, Suikoushya, plan to establish a school building in Ile de France in 2022. 

This is a project that we want to build with Suikoushya graduates and professional woodworkers. Through this real construction project, Takami would like to pass not only Japanese woodworking techniqs and craftsmanship but also the spirit of the Japanese people involved in making things.
