Water wheel model

In Takayama today I saw some shrines and a water wheel and was examining how they were put together. I had read that they were put together without any screws or nails and could see this first hand as special pegs had been carved holding the elements together. The water wheel was attached to someone’s house and seemed like a great model that could be reproduced. I purchased some wooden postcards that they sold and intend to use these with chopsticks to create a model.
