Kumiko is a traditional Japanese technique, made of many wooden bars crossed and laid to form various designs, patterns and expressions. No nails or metal pieces are used, and the wooden parts are put together by adjusting grooves and angles. In addition to the grid-work, decorative Kumiko patterns can be added within the grid to accent the design.
