joinery chisel

Joinery that blew my mind!

After seeing this example of joinery I had to share it, this is one of the most amazing joints I’ve ever seen.

At first I couldn’t work out how Shinobu Kobayashi, or “Shino_Bunny”, was able to cut the joint called Kawai Tsugite. There seemed no way it could work, even though it clearly did. If the beauty of the joint and the quality of the joinery wasn’t enough, the video of how it went together melted my brain…

It goes together in 3 different ways. THREE DIFFERENT WAYS!

Drop everything, unplug the phone and cancel the milk. This joint is too seductive to resist trying to cut, even with a dodgy thumb
