Jig, jig, and jig are self-tools

Jig" is a word I began to hear soon after opening the door to the world of woodworking.

What is a jig? So I looked it up.

Jig, jig, and jig are self-tools

he original word for jig is the English word "jig. The meaning of the English word "jig" and its explanation in Japan are almost the same: "A jig is a device with an auxiliary role in machining that fixes the workpiece to be machined and guides it during the machining process, and is also called an auxiliary tool. It is also called an auxiliary tool." Perhaps because it is based on an English word, it is sometimes written in katakana as "jig," and the word "jig" seems to have been applied to the word "jig" as a jig or jig.

When you visit a woodworker's studio, you will always find a jig of his or her own making.

When I ask them how to use them, they explain with great pleasure. I got the impression that he enjoys making his own jigs, thinking of tools to improve processing efficiency or to assist with difficult tasks.

In the landscaping industry, there are also people who make their own hand tools, such as trowels to harden the soil that forms the foundation, handles for masonry tools, and hand-pads used for gardening and finishing cleaning.

I can feel the spirit of these makers who "enjoy their work and spare no effort to make it better.

I would like to emulate the spirit of these craftspeople, first imitating their senior craftspeople and then making my own tools, "jigu," to make things in my own way.
