Ugh….baren re-covering

I can’t help but laugh when I look at this photo….
This is what’s left of the three bamboo sheaths
that I purchased to re-cover my baren. 
Obviously, I should have gotten quite a few more.

I’m strictly right-handed, so trying to hold, and 
twist and fold this with both hands was 
a major challenge. Since I was moving so slowly, 
the sheath was drying out and all
three ended up splitting along the edge
rendering them useless. Even re-dampening them
as I went along wasn’t working very well.

So back to square one…now, where is my McClain’s catalog???

    Uh oh, we're in trouble you and me. My TWO new skins are coming later this week. Maybe not enough, lol. If worse comes to worst, send me your baren and I'll take yours and mine both to Japan with me in June and pay someone to wrap them!!
    Ganbette kudasai!
