The Smell of Cedar...
Yokoso provides high-quality custom woodwork and carpentry based on Japanese techniques and style. Think of verandas, tea houses, koshikakes, Japanese gates and fences, and so on. All constructions and projects are custom built by hand from Western Red Cedar using traditional tools and techniques.
Western Red Cedar is an excellent alternative for the Japanese Hinoki wood. Cedar is just like Hinoki, very durable wood, and will turn silver grey over the years. The wood construction projects will, when possible, be carried out by hand in the traditional Japanese way. All essential and visible parts are constructed without nails and are held together through unique Japanese joinery. However, some hidden joinery may use modern techniques. The detail is most important to us.
Please check out our woodwork projects page on the link below for examples of finished projects.
