Finally finished my Shoji lamp Black Walnut with Bass wood Kumiko. My layout skills and accuracy has improved Considerably over time as well as my hand plane work and hand sawing. I also have a decent pile of Kumiko kindling for the fire! Enjoy, time for another project.

Excellent. I’ve really gotta try Kumiko.

Excellent work, sounds like it was a 2fer. Both a project, as well as a hands on course. Always good when you learn new things, and improve your hand skills.
