Making a Kumiko Box & Perfect for Keepsakes with Mike Pekovich July 23-24, 2022

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 students will start by building an elegant mitered box, where they will learn how to work safely and accurately with small parts at the table saw. After that, Mike will demonstrate how to make a traditional leaf pattern Kumiko grid to fill out the lid. During the process, students will learn the basics of Kumiko construction that can be put to use on future projects as well.
