In traditional Japanese timber-framing “hikarikata” is a technique where the curvature of a log is carved into a receiving timber. The reproduction of the curve employs a compass to trace the form, which is then painstakingly chiseled. Hikari means light, and the name of this technique means to “make them fit so well that no light passes through where they meet.”
