When used where two members cross each other at a right angle, it is called a cross lap joint. In either case, half the timber is cut from the underside of the other.
The result is a perfectly smooth surface where the two members are joined. Lap joints are connected by bolts, nails, or cotters. If the lap joint is used on the side boards of drawers, seen when pulled out, or any other visible place, such as at the corners of chests, the nails etc. Sometimes wooden nails are used effectively and do not need to be covered. Aigaki tend to be rather weak since half of each part to be joined must be removed.
This is achieved by cutting the protruding and indented e sections from opposite corners, rather than on the face of the timber. The parts are cut diagonally and then slipped into each other. A pin, peg, key, cotter or dowel made of hardwood, usually oak or zelkova.
It varies in shape and size depending upon need and placement. Holes are bored where necessary and pins are inserted and may pass through tenonned and indented pieces. The sen may be blind and only partially inserted to prevent slippage.
There are many kinds of sen: 1 komisen or daisen. A blind joint with pins slightly off center. In order to draw the nose of the beam tightly to the pillar and to prevent the pin from penetrating the post or from slipping, the pin hanasen is cut at an angle and is driven through a mortise cut in the extended tenon. When these parts are joined, the key's tapered ends are pounded into the resulting slots.
The slots may be aligned, half or fully staggered. If two boards are held together by shachisen, only mortises are made obliquely, part on each board, to receive the pin.
This is driven horizontally into a groove where the threshold and post meet.
It protrudes beyond the rafter on the side opposite its entry. Designers thrive in an environment that presents them with limitations, and it is through these limitations that innovation is born. The assumption was that computer would do all the necessary computations and adjustments as long as the joint was modeled and drawn in 3D.
However, several challenges 9 presented by the CNC process which forced the students to make certain decisions about the joint while not compromising its overall integrity. These design decisions would not have been made had these challenges not existed. For example, one student challanged the tra- ditional Miyajimi Splice by introducing complex miter that allowed the joint to be stable in multiple axis Figure 9.
After figuring out the proportions and understanding the geometry, he diseccted the joint in bilateral symmetry Figure The student found that the 3 axis mill could not perform under cutting and therefore he had two options; first was to horizon- tally slice the joint in accordance to glulam construction, second cut then laminate instead of laminate then cut Figure The final joint provoked new meanings through fabrication and introduced a poetic tectonics in construction Figure The experiment was a profound reflection of the industry as a whole, especially in terms of creating building assembly with the aid of digital practice.
For operators with little knowl- 10 edge of wood craftsmanship, it was helpful to be able to use the CNC router in order to make the precise cuts that were necessary to create the joints. It is also a time-efficient method to utilize when one needs to make repetitive elements for mass production. Once the resources are in place for the CNC, it is just a matter of cutting each piece with automation and the focus can be on other portions of the project to make the construction more time efficient.
The use of the CNC then streamlines the construction process and ensures that there are as few mistakes as possible, which saves time and money. However, an understanding of the nature of materials can be lost. The downside of using the CNC process is that in most instances, there are parameters that are involved with the machine that limit some of what 11 it can do.
For example, unless one has a 4 or 5-axis CNC machine, one can only utilize the process to cut from one direction. This is acceptable when the user only needs one side of the piece to be precision cut; however, in most cases, both sides of the object must be cut in order to complete it.
The issue becomes problematic because one would have to make the first cut, and then flip the material in order to cut the other side.
This takes away from pro- duction time and also opens the window for mistakes to occur if the material is not aligned perfectly or rotated into the correct position onto the cutting table. This observation also applies to many other construction processes which seemed that not all of the processes could be completed solely using the assistance of computer numerical controled processes. Each student first had to make the cuts with the CNC machine and then adjust or modify the 12 joints by hand in order to take off the rounded edges that were made by the router bit in the CNC machine.
Also, some students had issues with the material moving on the router table Figure 9, Miyajima Splice propor- because it was not anchored down sufficiently or because the CNC malfunctioned and cut a tions, bilateral symmetry dissection wrong [path] in the material, resulting in the need to either re-cut the piece or simply cover and CNC modification Traditional vs. With this experamint, students were able to utilize Contemporary the CNC router to understand how a newer fabrication method might be able to expedite Figure 11, Final modified Miyajima a process that from its beginning has always been done completely by hand.
In the past, it would take years for a Japanese 1. Piano, R. Rose, Editor. Heidegger, M. Harper colophon they were intended to.

From their experience with this project, they observed how the CNC could make precise cuts in a way that they could not achieve without years of practice. However, they found issues in the way the CNC makes particular cuts and how the linear aspect of a router bit cannot possibly get into every detail of a complex joint. There is, for example, the moment when the chisel is about to cut deeper than you expect, or you will find unusual resistance when planing, or the saw will be forced to go to in unanticipated directions as you are cutting along the grain rip cutting , etc.
By repeating these actions over and over, your body will naturally learn how the timber grains are running, as well as the right direction for the cutting edges to go to. Once you have reached this level, you should be able to use machines efficiently, safely and accurately without overworking them.
Now you can create almost everything you want.

Are your courses still for me? Our courses are geared towards beginners like you, and no prior knowledge of Japanese woodworking is required. Our courses are designed to allow you to learn step by step, all the way from an introduction of the basic tools to learning projects.
How to best use timber and how to read the wood grain 2. Everything about the tools you need to know. The basic posture when using each tool, how to move them, and how to adjust them.
Some typical joints used in Japanese woodworking. You will be able to choose the best joint for each project, their best dimensions, and how to lay them out and cut them. Not only that, you will also obtain the mental attitude that craftsmen working in Japan should have. If you have both, I think that any institution will be happy to accept you. Well, this is a bit of a scandalous question, because the media has been focusing a little too much on this point.
The answer is yes and no. Let me explain the nails first.
For the main structural parts, for example, posts and beams, or the legs and rails of pieces of furniture, no nails or screws are used. There are 2 reasons for this. The first reason is that if the metals get rusted, the wooden part that is making contact with the metals will start rotting too.
Secondly, joining the parts only by nails and screws will not make a final piece that is strong enough.
For the main part that will have a strong force applied to it, the joinery techniques are much more durable.There are various types. The parts are cut diagonally and then slipped into each other. Usually used to connect two beams. A simple miter. CNC machines lack the ability to investigate and test materials and their physical properties further, which can hinder design by limiting it to systematic manufactur- ing.
The final joint provoked new meanings through fabrication and introduced a poetic tectonics in construction Figure When the tenon is inserted into the mortise from the top.
