The popularity of Japanese woodworking tools and techniques has experienced steady growth among both the hobbyist and the professional woodworker.
This book, originally published in 1984, is considered the authoritative work on the subject. The author Toshio Odate, not only discusses all the tools used by a typical Japanese woodworker, but also infuses the book with his own memories of a rigorous apprenticeship in Japan, and how a classically trained-craftsman comes to understand the spirit of each tool and the true nature of craftsmanship.

Just what I needed to help me understand why Japanese and western woodworkers have evolved such contrasting tools. The author's anecdotes explain further and help to make the text enjoyable, not just a reference work.
