mini takenokawa

I couldn’t resist plucking this
tiny bamboo sheath from a friends 
garden today….
now if I can only find a baby baren
that needs re-covering….

an upcoming project

This is one of those projects that I’ve been dreading ever since
I purchased my first baren…..
re-covering the baren with a new barengawa (bamboo sheath).


So my order from McClain’s arrived yesterday which included three
bamboo sheaths.
It was probably overkill to purchase three, but I thought it safe just
in case I screwed up! 


Luckily, David Bull’s ebook “Your First Print” has
a wonderful section on how to re-cover a baren, so I plan on studying
that a lot before I make the attempt.
