General Japanese Woodworking Construction Terminology for Foreigners


I’m not sure how much demand there is for this kind of information, but in case there is, I’m listing general construction terminology with their definitions in English.

Being that my current field of work is the wooden and ALC (Autoclaved Light-weight Concrete, or Hebel here in Japan) house-building industry, most of what’s listed will be based around Japanese carpentry, woodworking, and the construction industry as a whole.

I will be updating this list periodically so bookmark me!
