Ahhh Japan...

Well my holiday is done and I’ll be back in the workshop tomorrow to set up for a big 2018.   Steve has already been working on some new designs and Bec has come back from her own holiday to Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and Malaysia with a bunch of inspirations and new ideas.  She will pen some of these ideas and experiences in a future blog post.

For me, seeing the tradition and refinement of Japanese wood work in the flesh was wonderful and I couldn’t help but purchase a little radius plane or Kanna to add to our toolkit.

We are hoping 2018 will be a big year for Mo’Kepala, so send us a message about the design you have in your head and lets get going on making it a reality :)
