A friend of mine wanted to make some Kamishibai with her pupils. Kamishibai is some kind of storytelling which comes from japan.”
She needed a butai (a theater) and asked me to make her one. It was a job for my little wooden cnc. So here it is: open and closed.
It’s made out of 10mm plywood and finished with shellac.

Yes you could use like this but usually the storyteller tells his story using a set of illustrated boards, inserted into the stage and withdrawn one by one as the story is told.
Thanks for the kind words.

It’s unusual and for a specific purpose. It is also a nice design and very well done.
