Technique

Sashimono

The first step is to cut pieces of wood accurately, taking the combinations of wood grain into account. Then, wood is planed or carved away to create protrusions or indentations that act as joints, which are stuck together at right angles to make items such as boxes. Japanese wood joinery is done without using nails or any other metal hardware.
