Kumiko Speaker

Traditional Japanese woodworking is famous for it's precise joinery that requires no hardware or glue to maintain strength. This technique is also used to create intricate, wooden, functional artwork, known as kumiko, which is used within Japanese style-rooms to create a stunning atmosphere. In this four-hour class you will make and take home a small powered speaker to liven up your cooking, working or playing! The class is an introduction to the kumiko woodworking technique as well as very (very!) simple electronics. Along with the speaker, you will leave with an understanding of the physics of a loud speaker and an fairly intimate relationship with basswood.
