tenon *hozo ほぞ and mortise
*hozoana ほぞ穴 joint
in which the tenon is indented like a neck. The indentation allows the tenon
to slide into the mortise enabling the protruding parts to hug the neck,
kubi 首, like a collar. This joint is used to join an upright member
to a ground sill.
2 The neck part of the long handle that is connected to the dipper of a tea ceremony ladle *hishaku 柄杓. In this case it is called mitsu-no-sumi 三の角 (3-cornered joint).
