415-1390 Japanese Woodworking Tools
Odate was trained in Japan. In this book he covers the history and use of each tool. Planes, saws, chisels, sharpening stones, etc. The philosophy and techniques of Japans masters are dealt with.
This is the best book dealing with Japanese tools and techniques.
Invaluable if you treasure fine tools and the emotions that go with them.
