A couple of years back Popular Woodworking Magazine had the chance to visit renowned sculptor, author and teacher Toshio Odate at his home. While there, we had a wonderful opportunity to speak with him about his life and work.
While filming a great deal of content for two videos, we had the unique chance to watch as Toshio, his family and friends (and a few of our crew) helped re-install one of his traditional sculptures. While he talks at length about the piece, Reminiscence of Heirin-Ji, we only show the assembled piece in the video. We thought we’d take this opportunity to share the captured building process in this short video. Enjoy!
Here are some supplies and tools we find essential in our everyday work around the shop. We may receive a commission from sales referred by our links; however, we have carefully selected these products for their usefulness and quality.
