    A great project! This lamp is one of my favorite things I’ve built to date. It generates a lot of curiosity and conversation. Mike’s instructions are excellent and all the videos are very helpful.

    Yesterday I finished my lamp. I have enjoyed every step of the build and I have to say that this is the most rewarding project I have ever built. There is a great sense of accomplishment when you set your first kumiko piece, and when the lamp is complete it looks just gorgeous.

    Mike is such a great teacher, the videos are really easy to follow. I cannot recommend this project enough.

    As I enter my 4th year of woodworking, the Shoji Kumiko Lamp was the perfect project for me. It improved all areas of my woodworking including milling, joinery and especially hand tools. There are endless Kumiko patterns so this is a project I see myself making many times. It is a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Mike’s instruction was excellent and I really appreciate his extremely dry humor. I feel like this project was a challenge for me skill-wise and it really propelled me from a woodworker to a fine woodworker. I highly recommend this project to anyone looking to improve their skills.

    Fantastic project. Uses scrap wood and the instruction is fantastic. Mike’s personality and wit alone make this project a must have.
