Reclaiming History- Kuniaki Kishi

In this segment of Reclaiming History, Lovonia Mallory covers the Northeastern Woodworkers Association NWA’s speakers series “Concealed Dovetails”, where master woodworker Kuniaki Kishi of Tokyo, Japan; demonstrates how to build a concealed blind dovetail joint using Japanese saws, to plane, and join to wooden surfaces. Mr. Kishi is owner of ACROGE Furniture which means “beyond generations” he makes custom-made furniture, and as his website states; his furniture “will be passed down for generations to come.” Mr. Kishi’s workshop was sponsored by the Northeast Woodworkers Association (Milan Fiske Memorial Lecture Series) and Suizan Japanese Saws Company.
