Instructor: Ruth Warbington
Enjoy a quiet shop and an introduction to kumiko as you build a drink coaster. This asanoha (hemp leaf) pattern is easier than it looks, but does require patience and attention to detail. The only tools used are a small hand saw and a 1" bench chisel. You will improve your skills with both but you don't need any experience to start. Kumiko was developed in Japan for shoji screens but is recently being used for decoration and for contrast in woodworking. You'll use the hand saw to cut pieces to length and then use a beveling jig to carefully shave the necessary angles on each end with a chisel. Bevel jigs, wood strips, chisel and saw will be provided. Bring your own chisel and small saw if you have them.
