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 “How to use yari-kanna”.have fun!One of the carpenter tools used in Japan before the arrival of carpenter tools from China to Japan about 1400 years ago is called yarikanna. Once upon a time in Japan, I used this tool to shape and finish. Now this tool is sometimes used when making texture patterns.

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.
