Laying out the Kumiko rails and verticals on so large a scale is not so daunting when using traditional techniques and patterns for layout. In this episode, we layout and chop the mortise holes and then create the unusual tenons with their little pointed ‘bird beak’. The method is unconventional in our western joinery world, but the technique crosses all borders and cultures where we discover for ourselves what can work effectively and efficiently. You will enjoy the whole methodology in seeing this process develop and the resulting precision achieved with common woodworking tools.
