I had seen that web page before but I lost track of it. A great challenge. And a super commission.

Same here Karson, I recall having stumbled upon it a few years ago but lost track and find it again today. Amazing work of art—and not only this table—.

That is impressive. Thanks for sharing the link. Wonder what his commission was for producing such a usable work of art.

....or; can you saw a spelled slab with an ‘maebiki-ooga’ !

Hello Jojo;
—-and yes great slab there, I believe I’ve seen this one before, but then I sometimes lose the links….thanks!!!

And yes, I’m still wondering about any pictures or knowledge that you may have about the ‘maebiki-ooga’, or Big Saw? Like can you get these over there in Japan and have you ever ‘saw’ (punning is in-tended) these in use? I’m also interested in any information you might have on the two man ‘oga’ which to my understanding is really the ‘big saw’.

As we know, any big slab worth it’s weight in wood, deserves a really big saw…. and maebiki-ooga



here’s an-other picture:


Thank you.
