Kazuyuki Tanaka

I am a craftsman who uses a wood turning lathe. My father was also the same type of craftsman. While I was attending high school part-time, I took over my father's wood turning lathe business. I was fascinated by the enjoyment of Karakuri and the complexity of workmanship, and wanted to make a new type of Karakuri by using a wood turning lathe so I participated in a research group.
I made Hakone type woodworking crafts of traditional art. I have made such things as Japan's smallest, small 3.8 mm in diameter gHakone Good fortune Toph, Russian Matryoshka's Roots of gSeven Lucky Godsh and gTwelve Eggh all of which are part of the Odawara area of traditional crafts.
In addition, the nesting works gThirty six eggsh" is in the Kanagawa Prefectural History Museum.
