Abstract


Kundekari technique has been known for centuries for its unique characteristics. The original [real] kundekari system where pieces of geometric blocks and keel bars are interlocked through tenon-mortising and tongue-groove without the use of any nails or glue, makes the whole structure very durable. The purpose of this study was to examine properties of original [real] “Kündekari” technique and imitation applications, investigate dimensional and functional properties and analyze the system elements. To make imitation “Kündekari” panel is easier than original kündekari panel. There are three methods to imitate original technique: relief, gluing-nailing and relief-nailing with different construction properties. Deformation properties of original and imitation kundekari panels were investigated and compared with the samples. The results indicated that imitation kundekeri panels generally had some fallen decorated keelbars, cracked and split places. So imitation kundekari furniture life is short, due to moisture and hot weather. The furniture produced with original kundekari technique proved to be more durable.
