Ichimatsu yosegi

Today I am making a checkered yosegi newly. The woods used are Nyatoh, Magnolia (Hoo), Beech, and Urushi woods. The wood's species of this Ichimatsu pattern is changed somrtimes. It is due to the availability stock of wood in my workshop. This striped pattern block is sliced thinly, so dense and soft wood is used. This ichimatsu pattern will be used for the side panels of 3 sun, 4 sun etc..
