Kumiko Tea Box | M. Pekovich
Box Making Skills with Mike Pekovich
Are you looking to spice up your work in a novel way? Then you need to sharpen your chisels and try your hand at Kumiko melded with Box Making.
Kumiko is a Japanese latticework technique that 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 weekend class, you’ll start by building an elegant mitered box, where you’ll learn how to:
- work safely and accurately with small parts at the table saw
- accurate cut mitres
- created keyed or splined mitres
- use jigs for accurate work and safety
You’ll then go on to making a traditional leaf pattern Kumiko grid. This is a great starter into the basics of Kumiko construction that you can put to use on future projects as well.
All levels welcome.
