Japanese woodworking has a reputation of using mostly softwood species, but there are plenty of examples of Japanese woodworking using hardwoods and tropical species (see Where Did ‘Softwoods Only’ Start? ), so the tools must have been able to deal with those types of wood. In theory, the harder edge of a Japanese chisel might be more prone to chipping, but in practice I’ve never found this to be an issue.

Japanese joinery is on another quality and expertise level than in western Europe. Wonderfully detailed diagrams make up the majority of this book, with a short first section describing Japanese woodworking tools and methods. A short section also describes the basic technique for fabricating some of the simpler joints, giving a good start for someone looking to try the more difficult ones. Not exactly a beginner's guide, but certainly an inspirational reference book! X. Previous image.

This book contains step-by-step instructions for the much-admired craft of traditional Japanese woodworking. Written as a text for Japanese craftsmen and carpenters, it includes every practical detail and explains every procedure.

Traditional Japanese woodworking emphasizes the importance of the carpenter's tools - understanding their functions and giving them the best possible care. In fact, in ancient times in Japan, it was said that a worker 's skill could best be judged by observing his care of edged tools. This guide, therefore, devotes many pages to the use and care of tools. No step is overlooked: from explanations of the various types of tools to sharpening procedures (using the renowned Japanese sharpening stones), and including the best methods for their protection and storage.

Building techniques are also carefully explained, with drawings and instructions for measuring, marking, cutting and carving wood. The latter part of the book explains methods for framing traditional wooden structures.

Hideo Sato's exposition of the subject conveys a refreshing spirit of reverence for the work and for the tools - an atitude which is considered essential for the traditional Japanese craftsman.

The book was expertly translated by the Japanese architect Koichi Paul Nii.

The pictures are all grouped together, so they are separate from the text that describes them.

Since I'm relatively new to the subject matter, I can't say for sure that the book is complete. It seems like a good introductory text, but in reading a few blogs, it seems like there might be quite a few other (more complex) joint variations in practice. If so, then it is a shame that this book reads mostly like a catalog of joint types, rather than presenting more theory. For sure some theory is presented, but not as much as I would have liked.

I bought it for one of my sons after finding a used version at my local Hawaiian used book store. My cover is different but all of the pictures and such are the same.
