If you appreciate, a unique joint, great craftsmanship, original work and work is difficult to determine the “how” may I introduce you to Master Kintaro Yazawa of Japan.

In this issue of Fine Woodworking you may see, online a slideshow presentation by the Master.

Hi Tony;
—-thanks for the update on Master Kintaro!!!

After contacting with you last Feb. on you profile page, I also likewise wrote to Master Kintero and told him how much I was ‘in awe of his work’. No small words here, as he is in-deed a master in the ‘exposed joinery’ by hand tools.

A very humble man, and yet one who is very capable in the arts of his craft. In the end, he told me how my email had ‘encouraged me very much’, which when you consider his vast knowledge of making furniture with machines and hand tools….says a lot.

One never knows how the use of words can be used for building blocks of greatness, till one seeks to understand the foundation of where all words come from, and in the end, I feel that this man has inspired and left a lasting impression in my soul, as a worker of wood.

GODSPEED,
Frank
