The Highland Woodworker, Episode 40

Moment with a Master: Megan Fitzpatrick has been surrounded by woodworking her entire life, but early on she spent most of her time and attention becoming a wordsmith. Learn how her sharp writing and editing skills took her all the way to one of the top jobs in the publishing industry — which also opened up a unique opportunity for her to learn how to build beautiful fine furniture, as well.

We’ll also get a lesson at her workbench that may have you laying out dovetails differently on your next project!

Popular Woodworking Magazine Tips, Tricks and Techniques: Zane Powell (Instructor at Marc Adams School of Woodworking) has a great how-to on making hold downs for easier wood pushing your table saw.

Toolbox: See why the Leigh VRS1200 is a smart solution for support and dust collection for a popular series of Leigh jigs.

Those stories and more — this time on The Highland Woodworker!

Cutting Kumiko Strips by Handtools // Kumiko Making Part 1

I made this video showing how to cut with handtools the wood strips in order to make a Kumiko pattern. Not only they are cut exactly all the same size, but they are also cleaned and smooth by the plane, so no further finish will be required. The main tool used is a handmade plane thickness jig.
This is part one of a Kumiko making series, next one I will make an actual pattern and in the third episode I will be making a box with a Kumiko lid.

A good reference in Kumiko making are these books from Des King: Shoji and Kumiko Design vol.1, D.King

Some tools used in this video, plus others I use and recommend:

Dozuki Saw EU:
Ryoba Saw
Veritas Low Angle Smoothing Plane
Stanley Low Angle Block Plane
Combination Squares 150mm: and 300mm:
Kebiki Marking Gauge
Mini Try Square
Mitre Square
Japanese Planes:
58 mm blade:
65 mm blade:

Atoma Diamond #400
Shapton Waterstones
Veritas Honing Guide Mk.II
Cheap Honing guide
