Tatsuo Miyamoto

Trueborn craftsman and versatile entertainer.

Because my father was making trick work, I began making trick work since I started my own woodworking.
I have made various works such as tricks inserting cigarettes and tricks such as “Inu-Kuwae”, “classical disc music box”, “gramophone”, and “street organ”.
I hope to use all of my experiences which were cultivated in making trick boxes, to make unique original ones with a new twist.
