Make a Kumiko Box with Mike Pekovich EDSI 21-2

Prerequisite: Shop Certification 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 two day workshop 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 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.

The fee is $575 and includes materials provided by Mike, as well as lunches.
