I am Takami Kawai, a carpenter in Japan.
I am currently working on a project to donate a torii to a shrine in Kyoto, and the whole process will be share for free.
If you want to learn more about torii production, take an online class.
I will explain how to construct a torii gate.
The theme is “Draw a fullcase drawing”.
Once the numbers for each part of the torii have been decided, write them down exactly.
At that time, decide a shape (a curve that you must decide by yourself) that cannot be understood only by the numbers.
By making the actual size, you can know various angles and it will help you to make the required JIG.
