This is the last job I did, in fact it was not exactly what I was ordered, it is true that it was a high table with certain measures, but due to read many times the enthusiasm of amateurs and professionals on the tool Japanese I was inspired by the idea of assembling some Japanese tendency to see if it was possible in my tiny workshop, where the only japanese tools are a hammer Genno to adjust blades and a square without heel.
It goes without saying that the final color of the furniture does not do justice to the joints look better but that’s what I was asked and I could not do anything else
Despite not being totally satisfied with the outcome I hope my colleagues will find it useful when looking for ideas.

Este es el ultimo trabajo que he hecho, en realidad no fue exactamente lo que me encargaron, si es verdad que fue una mesa alta con determinadas medidas, pero a raiz de leer muchas veces el entusiasmo de los aficionados y profesionales sobre la herramienta japonesa, me inspiro la idea de hacer algun ensamble de tendencia japonesa para comprobar si era posible en mi tallercito, donde las unicas herramientas japonesas que hay son un pequelño martillo Genno para ajustar cuchillas y una escuadra sin talon.
No hace falta decir que el color final del mueble no hace justicia para que se vean mejor las uniones pero es lo que me pidieron y no podia hacer otra cosa
A pesar de no estar del todo satisfecho con el resultado espero que mis compañeros lo encuentren util a la hora de buscar ideas.
