Art of Kumiko

Learn to Make Beautiful Panels by Hand
Matt Kenney


The Art of Kumiko is a step-by-step guide to creating a classic Japanese craft in the modern workshop with only minimal tools.

Kumiko is a delicate and sophisticated art created by assembling small wooden pieces into beautiful patterns. Matt Kenney offers step-by-step instructions for 10 patterns, with a level of detail that cannot be found in print elsewhere. Also included are cutting diagrams for several original decorative wall panels that make use of the patterns taught in the book.

You'll learn Kenney's methods for making Kumiko, which combine the accuracy and efficiency of modern woodworking equipment with the precision of hand tools to create beautiful pieces. You'll also learn how to incorporate Kumiko in both furniture designs and as stand-alone framed panels that pay homage to this centuries-old craft.
