Presenter: John Lavine
Chinese and Japanese woodworking


"China and Japan have two of the oldest traditions of woodworking joinery. Each of them developed systems that were intricate a and sophisticated, with a great number of similarities as well as some significant differences. Many of the differences concerned the application of these joints: the Chinese excelled in furniture production, while the Japanese focused on architectural projects. This presentation surveys the joinery of these two cultures, and examines the construction and application of many of these joints."
