This years course project was a guardrail for an elevated rooftop/deck. The material was mostly Redwood along with some Western Red Cedar. Typical Japanese jointery included mortise and tenons, dovetails and splices. The students first learn to tune their tools, then cutout the joints and finally hand plane the components. It’s a full, busy week and a lot is learned!
