Reading a book to learn carpentry tools is very important. The picture scrolls that remain in Japan are very interesting, and Kawagoe Kitain’s paintings show the tools vividly.
But, of course, checking for real tools is paramount, and without seeing, touching, and using the tools, you don’t know anything and nothing starts.
And today I would like to talk about another important learning method. To see the traces of processing. Inside the building, there are many traces of tools such as chona and chisels. Also pay attention to the other party of the tool. This is a great way to learn the tools.



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.
