Kakegi


Kakegi (掛け木) – in Japanese carpentry context, kakegi is a jig used in washitsu (和室) construction to temporarily hold up a kamoi (鴨居) for the purpose of scribing out the point where it meets the hashiras (柱). Wooden columns (柱) are often slightly twisted or warped, in which case the kamoi must be scribed if it is to fit snug. See hikaru (scribe) for more information on this.
