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.
(If you are curious, the Youtube video “BEGIN Japanology – Sashimono Woodwork” is an excellent documentary that shows the Sashimono joinery techniques and its mastery.)
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 manufacturers do not offer international shipping though you may be able to contact them in person and they may be able to help.
The good news is that good-looking Japanese-style shoe cabinets are available to purchase in the U.S. Check these out!
