JWA X Mandaraya

We’ve teamed up with one of the best independent tool retailers in Japan – Mandaraya – to bring those of you interested in Japanese woodwork a fantastic special offer, direct from Japan.

Japanese Woodwork Tools Starter Package | Approximately £300 Including UK Delivery And Plane Set-Up

Exclusive To The JWA

Mandaraya’s Japanese Woodwork Tools Starter Package includes 1 x 48mm plane (kanna), 3 x different size chisels (oire nomi), 1 x marking gauge (suji-kehiki) and 1 x marking knife (kiradashi). The essential items to start a journey into Japanese woodwork.

Including Delivery And Free Plane Adjustment

Crucially, your plane will be hand-tuned by the owner of Mandaraya himself, Teshiba Masanori. This vital initial set-up, a skill called ‘shikomi‘, is normally charged as an extra but Teshiba is waiving his fee, exclusive to the JWA.

Teshiba ships packages to the UK via registered Airmail and adjusting each plane takes some of his time, so please expect delivery within 3 to 4 weeks of ordering, perhaps longer during these current times.

  • Offer, including free delivery, is valid for UK deliveries only.
  • Only 1 Starter package per person allowed.
  • The Japan Woodcraft Association is not responsible for anything other than introducing the seller (Mandaraya) to the buyer (JWA site visitor), and is in no way liable for fulfilling orders or any lost and damaged goods in transit.
