Gallery of Work by Daiku Dojo Members

Daiku Dojo members enjoy doing woodworking project by hand, with almost no machine assistance. Hand tools take time to learn. The result is distinctively different from the machine-made, as the pictures below show. Structures such as gates, doors, bulletin boards, benches are some of the projects we do. We are a community organization, and we like to work with other community organizations to build and beautify our communities. If you have questions or comments about our work, see contact info to find out how to get in touch with us.
