"Their Tradition, Spirit and Use"
by Toshio Odate

Japanese woodworkers spend years learning to use their tools with speed and skill. In a newly reprinted version of his classic book, shoji maker Toshio Odate imparts the wisdom of a shokunin (master craftsman). In addition to offering practical advice about using fine planes (kanna), saws (nokogiri), chisels (nomi) and sharpening stones (toishi) , the book teaches the spiritual tradition associated with each tool. Profusely illustrated with line drawings and black and white photos. This was one of the first books in English about the Japanese woodworking tradition, and it remains among the very best. A must for anyone interested in the Japanese craft tradition. 189 pages. 9" x 12". Black and white photographs, sketches.

Pages: 189
