Japan, Australia, and Sweden. The three countries do not have anything in common on the first glance. But Shinobu Kobayashi and his kawai tsugite would disagree. He is a Japanese woodworker, residing in Australia, who is currently studying Scandinavian techniques in Sweden. The multicultural background has done wonders to his inspiration as he managed to cut an unbelievable piece. He has joined forces with a master cabinetmaker from Denmark and the result was spectacular three-way woodworking joint.
Kobayashi says the joint is an idea provided by a Japanese professor at Tokyo University, and is not that popular in Japan. The joint is quite complex, but you can try to understand how it works with the help of Matthias Wandel in the video bellow.
