Plan description

Choose wood and length and shave with canna to make original chopsticks! It is an experience in Shinshu Azumino where water, light, wind and sky shine. You can experience it from the third grade of elementary school! You can make your own original chopsticks by scraping from square lumber with canna. When you say⁉ from a square lumber with a plane, it feels like it's difficult, but it's okay because the craftsmen will teach you how to use the plane carefully. It is an experience that can only be done here in Japan where you can make your own easy-to-use chopsticks using the canna stand devised by craftsman Kawaguchi, which is different from the uniform chopstick making experience of just moving the canna on the axis. ~ Flow of the day ~ ① "Determine the wood and length." Decide the material of the chopsticks and the length of the chopsticks. (2) "Explanation of the process-Beginning when you are taught how to use planes-" Planes vary depending on the person who uses them! There is a difference in individual stance on how much it can be scraped. Therefore, the time of the chopsticks making experience is different for each customer! ③ 4 steps 1. Make the thickness easy to use 2. Scratch the corners 3. Sandpaper 4. Enter the name with a baking pen

You can choose wood!

You can choose between cypress and cherry lumber. Sometimes a black book ebony is available! The cypress wood has a straight grain and is easy to cut and hard to bend. Sakura wood is hard and has a swelling grain, so it has a taste. However, it may be difficult to scrape because it is hard⁈ It may take time⁈ For elementary school students, cypress wood is recommended. The price depends on the wood! Hinoki wood is 1650 yen Sakura is 2200 yen

You can choose the length of chopsticks!

Square lumber from 15 cm to 25 cm is available, so please choose the length you like. It's really from square lumber! Many people are surprised to hear "From here?" Everyone will enjoy making good chopsticks.
