Overview

Kumiko is a delicate and sophisticated art created by assembling small wooden pieces into beautiful patterns, and Matt Kenney’s latest book 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. In The Art of Kumiko 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.

Now he’s a furniture maker whose passion for the craft drives him to share his knowledge and experience with other woodworkers. He’s written dozens of magazine articles, been featured in instructional videos, and is the author of 52 Boxes in 52 Weeks, which chronicles his effort to design and make 52 boxes during the course of a year.
