Topic tags/keywords: question japanese

Does anyone know where one can find Japanese wood working plans? I’ve looked around and I can find information on Japanese joinery and furniture styles but no wood working plans. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Don’t know how much luck you will have, but worth a shot.

If possible I would like to find plans for the chair below and a buffet. But since we use a lot of Asian inspired decorations alot most anything is good.

why dont you just scale the existing picture of the chair in the link you posted. Lounga chairs have a typical hieght to the seat and go from there.

I actually want to make is that short. I’ve seen this in person and I think I can make it from my view. But given I’m still pretty new I like having a plan. :) Lucky Dawg I might take you up on that. Thank you.

David: I’ve found more on designing the furniture but not much on building it other than Shoji.
