Each of different-colored wood pieces are planed to the proper thickness to make Yosegi pattern and fastened with glue in order of the pattern.
The layered wood are sawn to fit a Yosegi-specific mold into a piece.

The cut pieces are planed accurately.
The glue is spread out on each completed piece to make a unit pattern.

The pieces are tied together and glued. Then this block of a unit pattern is sawn into several slices to form a larger pattern.

The cut slices are glued together again. This repeated process of cutting and gluing makes a larger pattern. The resultant plate is called Tanegi.

The plate is shaved carefully into thin sheets with a special big plane. This shaved sheet is called Duku.

As the shaved sheets are shrunken, they are ironed and stuck on the products.
