Other Japanese Hand Tools
Daiku Dojo promotes Japanese woodworking projects. In a larger sense it means using hand tools, especially Japanese hand tools, more than is common in contemporary woodworking. For with hand tools we get more joy and pride in our work, by building not just wooden pieces but also precious connections - connections to ourselves, to past traditions and craftsmanship, to the community at large, and hopefully to the future generations. You can look into the latest news for our upcoming events and projects. There's also the links page where a number of websites that's relevant to us are listed. If you find something here exciting and want to get more information for yourself or for someone else, you can contact us. We welcome you to get involved and grow with us.
