KEY WORD :@architecture / joints
@
Also written ΪŽθ.

1@A generic term for joinery including spliced and angled joints. When used as a suffix in compounds, the te Žθ is often dropped.

2@To join timbers end to end to increase their length; end or butt joints. Japanese joinery is divided broadly into two basic types: butt or straight joints, tsugite, and angle joints *shiguchi ŽdŒϋ. Consideration must be given to parts of the tree from which the timber has been cut. There are three basic arrangements: a) yukiaitsugi s‡Œp, to join timber ends which were both close to the top of the trunk sueguchi ––Œϋ; b) wakaretsugi •ΚŒp, to join ends from the base of the trunk motoguchi Œ³Œϋ; c) okuritsugi ‘—Œp, to join two timbers, one end of which came from the upper part of the trunk and the other from the base. It is also important to note the location of the jointed member in relation to the timber to which it is attached: *shintsugi ^Œp, the joint itself is squarely set upon a supportive member such as a pillar; mochidashitsugi ŽoŒp, the joint itself is in part of the member which extends beyond the supportive timber. This results in a certain weakness in the jointed member. Finally, the most fundamental methods of joinery include: a) kirikumitsugi Ψ‘gŒp, a joint dependent upon tenon *hozo ‚Ω‚Ό, and mortise *hozoana ‚Ω‚ΌŒŠ; b) *koshikaketsugi ˜Š|Œp, a lapped joint; c) soegi itatsugi “Y–Ψ”ΒŒp or soegitsugi “Y–ΨŒp, a splint or brace joint; d) *sogitsugi ŽEŒp, a scarf joint.
