Make a Kumiko Box with Mike Pekovich


White Card Required

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. 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 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. After that, you'll make a kumiko panel by hand to finish off the box. During the process, you'll learn the basics of kumiko construction that you can put to use on future projects as well. 

A White Card is required for this workshop. If you do not have a Green Card or a Machine Skills sticker for the table saw and are not a regular user of the table saw, it is highly recommended that you take the Table Saw Machine Skills class in advance of this workshop.

A set of kumiko bevel blocks will be available for each student to use during class at no charge. Additional sets will be available for purchase if desired.

Because of the expected popularity of this workshop, early registration is strongly encouraged. Register now for a discount. Early registration is $575 until midnight September 19, 2020. Late registration is $615 beginning September 20, 2020.

Lunch will be provided.
