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 “Prepare the Jpanese torii Pillar Template”.



Before actually creating the pillars, let’s prepare the template.

With a template, you can easily create two pillar with exactly the same shape.

You can also visually understand the required material size.

Make sure you have a template to make it easy and reduce mistakes.
