Dear seamster,

Thank you, I appreciate your comment!
There are many senior craftsmen of traditional Taketombo in Japan.
As I'm a beginner in this way, this up is an introduction to the simplest method.
In the future, I would like to introduce the production methods
for advanced users include of 3d Printing little by little.

Best regards,
Keiichiro Takato
