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 technique of assembling wooden pieces into beautiful patterns without the use of nails, and Matt Kenney's latest book offers step by step instructions that can't be found in print elsewhere. Kenney, a former editor at Fine Woodworking is at the forefront of a revival in interest in Kumiko. He has included Kumiko in both his furniture designs and as stand-alone framed panels that highlight the work. Kenney's methods are reimagined for the modern workshop but still require precise handwork that pays homage to the craft.
