Kumiko is an ancient Japanese woodworking technique of making intricate wood panels with geometric patterns using no nails (only grooves, mortise, and pressure).
In this Pask Makes video, he creates a panel by cutting nails to size and welding them together in a Kumiko-like pattern.
The patience it would take to do something like this makes me dizzy. But the results are undeniably lovely.
And, there’s a great tip in here. When cutting/nipping bits of metal or other material that might fly away, line up your cut and then cover the workpiece with a towel before doing the cutting. This will prevent the waste pieces from flying all over your work area.
