1.INLAYING by CARVING(3-D Artwork)

This technique was first discovered at the shosoin temple in Nara, Japan. However, it is not practiced in the Hakone area.
Artists select and cut different kinds of wood, in order to painstakingly carve 3D designs using special chisels and knives. The process is handed down through the generations as a special talent to create works of all sizes and shapes.
This method is also found in various forms throughout Southeast Asia, with many works adorning homes and temples.

2.INLAYING by PILING

The second method can commonly be found throughout the entire HOKONE region. Various sizes of different natural coloured woods are placed in a particular order on a board, creating a design using the various colours effectively. After cutting them with a coping saw, pieces of wood are then combined with others, in order to create beautiful patterns foe the goods.

3.INLAYING by COTTING & PULLING OUT

Varied pieces of wood are deliberately selected or their colour and texture and planed until a smooth surface. With a design in mind, the craftsmen carefully cut the design out of the timber,using a coping saw and remove the piece, as if a jigsaw puzzle. The pieces are then outlined onto other coloured timbers and also cut out. After the process is continually repeated the design eventually comes together like a jigsaw puzzle. The process must be repeated many time over, depending on the intricacy of the design.
Having completely pieced together and made the base of the picture or design, slice are finely shaved off the block to create the artwork for picture or boxes. This requires a great deal of concentration and skill. The thin wooden design is known as "zuku".
