Stack of kumiko frames going together.

More kumiko parts
Some of the kumiko parts for the last three orders- the labor intensive part of a shoji screen. Every little 'stick' needs to be planed-cut to length-notched-planed again-oiled-oiled again then burnished and assembled. There are two kumiko frames per shoji and the last step is to cut the laminated paper make the kumiko-paper-kumiko sandwich that will slide into the shoji frame. K18 is a more complicated pattern with many more pieces and each of the free floating ends needs to be detail trimmed as shown above.
