New pattern - Chōchin masu-tsugi

I managed to squeeze in another pattern before I finish off the YouTube shoji. This one is called chōchin masu-tsugi. It’s very similar to the chōchin izutsu-tsugi I made last year and included in the blog here and the patterns section here. All the difficulties with this kind of pattern I mentioned in the chōchin izutsu-tsugi blog and pattern sections are further compounded by the jaguchi at the ends of the locking pieces for this pattern. These jaguchi on the ends are a “one-go” cut, and even the slightest inaccuracy means the piece ends up in the bin. It’s a good test of patience.
