Jason Forster

Jason is a member of the KEZUROU-KAI USA Japanese woodworking group. He has taught classes on Zoom and in person. He plans to teach at Laney College after Jay van Arsdale retires.

Making a joint

Jason does most of his woodworking by hand, using the tablesaw, thickness planer and router only to rough out a project. Rather than use a vise, Jason often sits on the piece to be cut to stablize it for cutting.
