It’s an ancient carpentry technique with its origin in Japan. It eliminates the use of nail and adhesives for joining but uses intricately designed interlocking shapes to form sturdy joints. Structure created by this method lasts longer and are easily assembled and disassembled. We would simulate the procedure using thermocol, creating structures that would be entirely joined without any nails or adhesives.
