Eijiro Hara

Timber Frame Team Leader

Joined Daizen in 2008

Eijiro Hara began his carpentry career sharpening his chisels under the direct supervision of his father who would inspect Eijiro’s work with a sharp eye and say “o.k.” only to ping the freshly sharpened chisel with a hammer for Eijiro to resharpen. This established a solid base for Eijiro.

Precision should be a habit.

Utilizing that fundamental skill Eijiro began his 8-year carpentry apprenticeship under a master carpenter Toyomi Hara… His father.

His love for carpentry and building led him to a degree in building technology at the Tajima University of technology in Japan. “I wanted to learn the entire process of building.” From there he became interested in large timber construction and having heard of Dai’s reputation. Eijiro contacted Dai for his advice on how to further his education in this field. Dai’s advise?  “Move to Canada, I can teach you.”

That was 11 years ago. Eijiro is a team leader now with Daizen and oversees the detail work of each timber frame along with guiding his team and pushing their abilities through daily coaching. Eijiro’s constant drive for perfection is what fuels him.
