Steps to Tight Joinery Series by Andrew Hunter

At Kez USA we are often asked “how do Japanese carpenters get such tight fitting joinery?” The answer to that question is not an easy one and certainly not a question that could be answered accurately in a single Zoom class. That is why we are offering a series of classes by instructor Andrew Hunter to explore the fundamental skills behind such beautiful work.

The four class series starts with sharpening, because good work begins with sharp tools. From here Andrew will teach a class on setting up a new Japanese plane. Japanese planes are a joy to use, but it takes some time and know-how to get them working right. In the third class of the series Andrew will show students how to use Japanese planes to flatten and square stock. Which leads us to the final class on laying out and cutting accurate Joinery.
