Location: Nara, Japan
I'm originally from southern California, I came to Japan about 20 years ago.
I became interested in woodworking and have been doing ever since.
I also like movies, and music.
Tools : Makita 2012 planer, Ryobi table saw (imported from America), Ryobi BS-51 Band saw, Bosch 6" ROS, as well as an assortment of Japanese hand tools.
In the spring and summer, I cruise around Nara looking for felled trees. I often pick up persimmon, paulownia, cherry (very abundant), keyaki (zelkova), camphor, and fig.
I live in Sakurai, which was a lumber town known for its Hinoki (Japanese cypress) grown in the mountains that surround Nara, and used in the building of traditional Japanese houses. Now as many companies have gone under with the decreasing economy or are continuing by making glulams for the ever increasing presence of lower cost 2x4, or prefab houses.
Still more to come....
