Hello everyone,
I have been thinking to make a Kumiko jig for the Asa no ha pattern, but the idea to have 4 jigs to cut the strips was driving me away as I have enough jigs around in my small workshop, so I decided to make one jig that serves both angles cutting and also cutting strips into the same length.

Here is what I came up with, what do you think? I am not an expert in Kumiko and have no previous experience in making them but I love the way these patterns look and sure I can use them to make boxes or side wood lamps.

Here is a link for how I make this jig if you like to watch:

Just from the still photos I think it’s great. Now I’ve got to watch the video.

The video shows a well-thought-out process and a great finished jig.

Thanks !

Nice jig. Did you put wax on it before the oil finish? I’m a bit confused by that as I always use an oil finish before waxing.

Great video. Perfect timing. I was given a book on kumiko for Xmas and am going to make the jigs this weekend. The all 4 angles in one is a great idea.

Thx, I used wax on the dado and on the miter corners no oil, the oil is on the sides but no wax, hope this cleared things out
