Laney College's Japanese Hand Tools II Class - 2005/05/13

This is the second to last class of the Spring semester. Everyone is working really hard and looking forward to the potluck party at Jay's shop next Sunday.

Jay explaining the design and joinery for the fence post which will be used in the upcoming volunteer project for the Friends of the Japanese Garden in Oakland. We helped buid a gate at the last Kezurou Kai in Oakland (Oct 2005).
