Shaping the wood around a rock

A Tea Ceremony Room in Kamakura / 鎌倉市 茶室新築工事  Part 3

My work is mostly done as a carpenter, now a plasterer is giving the undercoat. (日本語は下へ)


How beau1908054_535370549927757_675027925225143707_ntifully it’s being done even the curvy part? I can always count on his work.

Meanwhile, we, carpenters are working on the Koshikake-machiai (a waiting room) that will be placed in the Roji (tea house garden).

Firstly we place the Neishi (base). The stone used here is called Kurama-ishi, a type of granite. It is rusty on the surface with colour of red-brown, commonly used as a Tsukubai (a basin), Ishi-tourou (a rock lantern), a place to take off shoes or simply placed in the garden. Very valuable rocks indeed!
