Getabako by Sashimono Technique
Have you ever heard of “Sashimono” wood making technique? If I say that this is a Japanese Wood Joiner technique, you may have heard of it. It is the technique that is putting two wooden pieces together without using nails. This seems delicate, but it is quite sturdy and can be used for many generations.
This Sashimono wood making has been used to make furniture, including Getabako, Japanese shoe cabinets. The photo gallery in this blog shows some of the beautiful Getabako that are made in Japan. They are stunning! Unfortunately, most carpenters or manufactures do not offer international shipping though you may be able to contact them in person and they may be able to help.
Good news is that good-looking Japanese style shoe cabinets are available to purchase in the U.S. Check these out!
Update - 2020.01.10This blog was originally published on Aug 2018 and has been updated. I left some images to show the images.
The shoe rack is not a cabinet, of course, but I wanted to include some of the shoe racks here since they reflect the modern Japanese style. Japanese are good at making the most out of every square inch of space.
