My first (and second) Kumiko (Asa-No-Ha) Squares (4” x 4”) for my girls.

I showed my first kumiko square to my two year old and she promptly declared that it was now hers. My older daughter saw it and wanted one too with a purpleheart frame.

I really enjoy woodworking because I feel like there are endless possibilities. So many things to learn and try. I really enjoy the process of figuring out how something is made and seeing it come together. Afterwards, I am on to the next project. As a result, I feel like I am all over the place (see my other projects on Instagram) but its ok since it’s a hobby.

For this project, I was inspired by the work of Adrian Preda, Mike Pekovich, akwoodanddesign, mekwoodworks
, Mike Farrington

After I am done, I am happy when I find someone who is able to enjoy the end result. Otherwise, I am not sure what I would do with the different things I make. What do you usually do with the stuff you make?

That’s really nice! As far as what I do with my projects, they’re usually for me. I have a stack of low relief carvings that are in a cabinet in the garage, since there’s no place to hang them in the house. I’m thinking of cutting niches into the wall in the hallway and making a gallery.
