Jyubako = Stacking box
Jyubako means stacking boxes in Japanese which are especially designed to use as lunch boxes to display the contents beautifully.
We are making Jyubako inspired boxes to have fun using a Japanese plane. You cut your materials to make boxes into your desired size. You can use the box for any purpose. You can use my planes which are already well sharpened. You will use jigs to cut accurate mitred joint. This class is not for technical development but more for fun.

Come and have fun making long shavings with Japanese plane!
