Asa-No-Ha Kumiko

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Asa-No-Ha KumikoHere is my first kumiko project. Basswood with a 1 square poplar dowel for the frame. I bought Matt Kenney's book and made jigs from some red oak I had kicking around. I bought 3/16 X 3/4 basswood strips from a vendor, figuring to save time and money. That was my first mistake. I bought plenty so that I only paid shipping once. They advertise a tolerance which I figured I could live with. Didn't matter anyway, since my flat top rip blade is .140, so through the drum sander they went…all 50 four-foot sticks! This is comprised of 266 pieces of wood, so lots of cutting! Not something I'd do for a living. The table saw was used to rough the length of the small pieces, as I'm more interested in progress than process for lots of little pieces. Cutting all the little pieces to shape in the jigs is about as Zen as I'll ever get. I purchased the wood before I got the book, so discovered that he uses 3/8 stock instead of 3/4. So, it's pretty thick. I have yet to put a cloth back on it like MR Kenney suggests. We'll see how that goes, or if I actually do that.

Kubb set

Furnished content.

Kubb setKubb is a lawn game that consists of throwing batons to knock blocks over. If you care for more information see usakubb.org. This is a birthday gift for my grandson. (I'm pretty sure he doesn't browse LumberJocks, so I'm trusting you guys to keep a secret.) Most of the pieces are made by gluing maple boards together to get the desired thickness. The stakes (used for marking boundaries) and the case are poplar. The pieces are finished with linseed oil, the case with spray polyurethane.
