I think you will want to play around a bit to see if you can narrow your subject matter choices. When I started I was all about plywood and Steve Ramsey material. Now I am all hand tool, real wood and Paul Sellers. Most of the books I have are about joinery. What I am saying is things may change. You Tube is a great source to help figure it out too.

+1 on the Matt Kenney book. IMO, A very good starter book with some nice looking projects from easy to relatively advanced. I've only done enough to make the jigs that make it easier and to try a few basic cuts but the instructions are very clear so far.

The Art Of Kumiko by Matt Kenney. Published by Blue Hills Press and available on Amazon

+2, easy read and about 10 patterns in the book. Have not done any projects yet, but some are on the list

I'll need to check that out too. I did my first kumiko from the Pekovich book, but that is a pretty small section of his book. I also saw a guy who was selling kits and blocks and plans etc on Etsy

I seem to recall that Matt Kenny sells kits and jigs too.

I want to create it myself, if I buy all the material "I" didn't make it in my mind. But I thank you for the info maybe SPM can use it.

Which book to refer you to for more advance content, would depend on what type of woodworking you want to lean toward.

One of the books I have, "Woodworking Wisdom & Know-How". From the editors of Fine Woodworking. A larger size book, black & white pages, 10 1/2" x 13 3/4" and 4891 pages, pages are thin. I got mine used in very good condition on Amazon. A lot of good content.

Not a book on Kumiko but Lee Valley has a 4-part livestream series on Kumiko. The first session was last week. Next in the series is Nov. 10. Full disclaimer: I am the presenter :) Also, I will be introducing new techniques on creating the small bevels. The best part is the livestreams are free!

Pat, you can watch it here Advance the play bar to 1 minute 40 seconds for actual video unless you like mind numbing replay of the Lee Valley logo.
