Kumiko is visually interesting but one of those things that I have zero interest in making myself. The attention to detail that is required is respectful though. What I like the most about the process of making kumiko projects is looking at the jigs involved. Quite a few interesting setups can be seen in this video.

This is a great example of how to remove a defect from an antique while still keeping the antique look and feel.

Check out some of the projects in Frank’s house. The Queen Anne Lowboy….so gorgeous. I often wonder how many projects great craftsman like Frank who make pieces for a living make for their own homes. Also, a great demonstration of inlaying string inlay without expensive tools.

I love how unique this piece is. Not too flashy, not too simple. Just the right amount of creativity. Also a great example of the source of inspiration.

I’ve shared this previously but I know a lot of you can benefit from it. This is a good collection of really useful bench jigs.

This is a great technique for making that small specialty chisel. It’s also a great demonstration for turning a tool handle.

I absolutely love the look of this table. I can’t help but think of a bonsai tree when looking at the final design. The feet look like tree roots reaching out and the way the top leans and feels visually heavy on one side. Typical of a bonsai tree. Fun fact; I love bonsai trees. My dad had a few in the house when I was younger.

Another interesting build from parillaworks. Definitely thinking outside the box. The inner dust collection fanatic in me was slightly panicking with that much routing.

Here’s a project that has a great balance between visually appealing, not complicated to build, and good features. Probably the best DIY monitor stand I’ve seen.

  1. Thanks for featuring my monitor stand Jay! It’s working out great. I like how it matches the wood furniture and the projects I have on display in my office. I did end up cutting a slight 3 degree bevel on the bottom of the vertical piece, so the monitor would lean back a little to compensate for the rounded back of the TV.
