Fun Link Friday: Hypnotic gifs of Japanese joinery

Studying artisans, I’m a little biased in just how cool I find today’s Fun Link Friday, but a friend passed this link along and I couldn’t resist. de zeen recently posted a series of simple yet stunning gifs of Japanese joinery techniques in action, illustrating the advanced woodworking skills traditional artisans in Japan have been using for centuries.

The gifs come from a Twitter account called The Joinery and are absolutely addictive to watch. Check it out at the original article or click the image below! Many more can also be found on The Joinery itself. Happy Friday!
