About this deal

Brackett’s descriptions of his design and construction process, as well as of the wood material he uses, are enticing and provide a lot of technical and philosophical insight. The knowledge inside has to be totally fascinating and would open my consciousness to a whole new world. There are several actions that could trigger this block including submitting a certain word or phrase, a SQL command or malformed data. This introduction to Japanese joinery delves into the history and development of Japanese carpentry, and it also reveals many secrets of Japanese joinery. Si solo os interesa verlas y leer sobre el tema seguramente esté bien, desde un punto de vista práctico no.

Be prepared to get lost as Brown goes through the assembly process, detailing each step of the erection of the temple, layer by layer, of which there are many.I’ve been owner-building and learning about western-style carpentry, but the more I see of Japanese carpentry the more intrigued I am. We are using selectively cut redwood from a restoration forestry project, and all of the work will be done without power tools.

I’m working with a local carpenter to design and build a small timber framed house (three year ETA), and I am trying to educate myself beforehand on the joinery methods that will be used.The photos (both color and black and white) are fantastic, as are the highly intricate drawings of the Picture Hall assembly. I’ve long been fascinated by many aspects of Japanese culture – from netsuke to monmon cats to bladesmithing to packaging to samurai armour – and especially their methods of carpentry and the tools they use to achieve it.
