After taking a Kumiko 5 day course in Melbourne Australia I learned the basic skills of Kumiko. However it wasn’t until your Mike Farrington article (#274) that motivated my interest to take it to the next level and beyond. This example has over 1,300 pieces, made of pine and walnut all at 2mm. The smallist pieces are 9mm. Measures 46 X 28mm. I must thank you for the story as without it I know I would not have achieved this level of competence. Thanks So Much Mike and the Finewoodworking staff.
