This is my first post here. I am wondering if anyone here has interest in Japanese timberframing or any experience in it? I work with a company called Takumi in Seattle,wa that specializes in traditional japanese carpentry. I love meeting others who are interested in this type of building.

Also I am selling a set of Ouchi Japanese timber framing chisels. I have not used them so they are brand new. I bought them from japan and the maker is called "Ouchi" and is a famous blacksmith from Miki. If you are interested please email me directly
breathingunderwater@hushmail.com
the set is
48mm,36mm,30mm,24mm,16mm,9mm
I am asking 650.00 for them
I priced the set at Suzukitool an online japanese tool store at they were priced over 1500.00 so I think 650.00 is a very good deal.

all the best,
shawn

Hi Shawn,

Welcome to Permies......nice to have you join the group!

I believe there are a number of folks here that appreciate the Asian designs and approaches to architecture. I have specialised in the "folk class" of vernacular styles like Chise, Hanok, and Minka for over 30 years. We actually have several Minka farm houses for sale currently on one of the websites for a company I consult with. There aren't many of us in North America, so another welcome to working at being a Daiku 大工. It has been many years since we met but Dale (founder of Takumi) might still remember my name.

Please take some nice photos and post them here of your chisels...at any rate folks would enjoy seeing them.

Again...welcome,

j

Hello Jay,
Nice to meet you and I will be checking your website as soon as I am done typing this.
I just uploaded a few pics of the Ouchi.
Sounds like you have a lot of experience especially since your doing minka and hanok type stuff. What is Chise by the way?
I will mention you to Dale tomorrow. I am sure he will remember you.
I look forward to sharing more with you! all the best for now.

Those are awesome, I have two and sure wish I could afford to buy your set. I have begun the work of learning Japanese joinery for timber framing. I can do most of the traditional American timber joinery but for scarfs I feel like the Japanese joinery will be superior. Welcome to Permies
