Introduction to the Art of Kumiko with Mike Pekovich

Mike Pekovich twin Kumiko boxes 2 2021 800Are you looking to spice up your work in a novel way? Then you need to sharpen your chisels and try your hand at kumiko. This Japanese latticework technique is traditionally found on shoji screens but is making its way into contemporary furniture and boxes. The elegant geometric patterns of kumiko begin with a simple half-lap grid. From there each square is filled out with small, precisely beveled parts until the pattern emerges.

In this 3-day weekend class you'll start by building a pair of mitered boxes, where you'll learn how to work safely and accurately with small parts at the tablesaw. After that, you'll learn to make two different traditional kumiko patterns that you can use to top off the boxes. Most students come away with two completed boxes at the end of class (just in case you still need to check off some holiday gifts!).
