Osaka Karaki Sashimono is wooden articles manufactured in several cities of Osaka Prefecture. Karaki are woods from trees mainly grown in Southeast Asia, and include rosewood, ebony, Chinese quince, and Bombay black wood. Sashimono (joinery) is the name of a woodworking technique for assembly without using nails or screws. Sashimono is so called because planks are joined by sashiawaseru (combining) mortises and stops. Karaki Sashimono artisans and merchants settling in Osaka in the Edo Period when the city was a bustling center of commerce established the history and tradition of Karaki Sashimono in the region.
Osaka Karaki Sashimono are characterized by their shiny solid and attractive colors and urushi lacquer surfaces as smooth as a mirror. Today’s furniture made with the traditional techniques still blends well with modern interiors, and products range from cabinets and tea shelves to tables, such as Japanese low tables and vase stands, as well as very small items, like chopsticks and small boxes.

►General Production Process
1. Sawing Wood
To make a fine piece of furniture, only the finest wood will do, making the selection of wood materials extremely important. Since karaki woods are very hard, they can only be sawn in a sawmill specializing in such work. Logs are assessed to bring out their beauty and much care is taken not to crack the core.
2. Drying
The wood is naturally dried indoors for five to six years.
3. Preparing the Timber
When dry enough, wood is cut roughly to size, with an allowance for error.
4. Planing
The roughly cut materials are planed to an accurate thickness. Detailed sections and curved and joined sections are finished with planes set with a variety of angles.
5. Marking in White
White lines are drawn with a blade on the planed surface for later processes.
6. Cutting the joints
Mortises and tenons are cut out with a chisel and finished with a wood file.
7. Polishing
The materials are polished with water and water-resistant paper.
8. Forming
The sections to be joined are finished.
9. Coloring
The wood is colored with dyes, such as sappan dye and black-tooth dye.
10. Assembly
Components are assembled and glued.
11. Lacquering
Naturally purified kiurushi (raw urushi) is evenly rubbed over the product to give a beautiful finish, which over time will develop an attractive antique patina.

Woodworking, The Oldest Ancient Hand Tools Still Available, Most Incredible Woodworking Tool

Woodworking, The Oldest Ancient Hand Tools Still Available, Most Incredible Woodworking Tool That Will Blow Your Mind

Yari Ganna (Yari Kanna) – Japanese Spear Shaped Plane:

Considered part of the kanna family, the Yari-Ganna (Yari Kanna) is one of the oldest style planes still available. A plane thought to have been the only plane employed in ancient times to pare and finish timber.

The Yari Kanna is shaped like a spear called yari, used by soldiers in battle in ancient times. The plane has a long, narrow, leaf-shape blade attached to the end of a handle, rather like a large chisel. Today Japanese carpenters do not use this plane for ordinary building work, but it is sometimes used to meet special requirements in temple and shrine architecture.
