Welcome to the website of D & M King
Shoji and Kumiko Design
All the former information about shoji and kumiko is still here, and can be easily found by clicking on the navigation bar at the top. Further information will be added over time.
You can see, though, that there's a new section — rocking chairs; specifically, the beautiful and extremely comfortable rocking chairs designed by Hal Taylor. I'm continually adding to the number of rocking chairs I've made, and with each one, I'm discovering a new aspect of beauty and comfort in this design.
And I'm honoured and pleased to say that Hal has granted me the rights to sell his book, templates, back brace hole template, and DVDs in Australia and New Zealand. So woodworkers Down Under and in the Land of the Long White Cloud can now buy the complete set of plans without the horror of huge postal charges. Details will follow over the next week or so.
So whether your interest is in the fascinating world of shoji and kumiko, or the comfortable and relaxing feel of a wonderful rocking chair, please click on the navigation bar above, or on the relevant image below.
