Traditionally used in Japanese sliding doors, kumiko is a delicate art created by assembling small wooden pieces into geometric patterns. This book provides step-by-step instructions for creating 10 kumiko lattices. The detailed instructions help you through every part of the process, from choosing tools and creating cutting guides and jigs to final assembly, using modern woodworking machines together with hand tools to create precise, beautiful work.
Kenney demonstrates how to present the finished lattices, as a stand-alone decoration or incorporated into a furniture design. Cutting diagrams for the lattices and several of the wall panels he uses are included.
