bachi!

I just made my own bachi (sticks for taiko) and even though they were termediously simple (cut down, round ends, sand) I'd forgotten how much polished wood (wow, I love carpeter's steel wool now; the amazing silkiness that wood can get. I'd completely forgotten) maes me happy. I put one layer of finishing oil on them and left them to dry. I put the kanji for cat (neko) (猫) on them. I keep woring that because I know so little japanese that putting cat on sticks is some weird cultural insult and I'm embarass myself like that zip/camel incedent. Or mabye just that it's silly to have put kanji on my sticks in the first place. I kind of want to get approval of the sanding before I put them to the drums, so I kind of have to show them to my teacher and risk strange looks and embarassment.
