There's an attachment tab below this window (when you write a post). The image code that you used is if you have a url (web address).

Emmet nice tea outfit. You're better versed in tea terminology than I am, and I've been studying to make chawan for over 10 years now. I'll post a few pictures of my efforts

Some (7 or 8) in the sangha here will be taking Jukai at the end of September, and I've made lathe-turned wood rings for the rakusus that they are sewing. All the rings were finished today. I'll distribute most of them at a Saturday sit tomorrow. --Joe

Nice Joe... the best a woodmaker can do, among other things. My old friend William in CO did same.... do you know him?

Imagine my surprise when the slab of black musical-grade Ebony turned out to have yellow and brown filamentary grain! I'm wondering if the rings in that stack of eight Ebony rings will all oxidize to pure black, slowly, as the rakusu-wearer practitioners go deeper into their practice (I mean, as the years go by). Maybe not: I've sealed their surfaces with pure Brazilian Carnauba paste wax; maybe this will confer some inoxidizability for some decades.

I recall John Tarrant Roshi once saying in Tucson, "A rakusu is something that you try to wear-out in your lifetime" (blessings, John).

ps I don't think I know a woodworker William from Colorado, no. Does he maintain a website, BTW?

auspicious markings Joe.... may the force be with them.

ah, Joe, I have started my own wood working project... have been asking ppl, nobody knows....

I have a tai chi ruler which I am sanding down to smooth out evidence of machine turning and take off finish. I have been puzzling about how to finish it. I want something non-toxic that can be held in my hands without stickiness, etc.

I just heard a story about someone who used linseed oil, placed rags in a basket.... and started a fire. Yikes!!

what do you think?

ah yes, blessings, John

Linda, boiled linseed oil is a drying-oil (it doesn't remain oily, provided the label says "BOILED" Linseed Oil), and dries in about a WEEK, given a thin coat, or two (better to be sparing! thick coats can remain sticky). Wipe off excess and let it dry in open air (it's a bit smelly). Then buff it. Or even wax it afterwards.

But I much prefer clear Carnauba paste wax (a brand that comes in tins from "TreWax"). Apply; allow to dry for 10 minutes; buff it with an old towel; and, you're done!, in 10 minutes. What a shine. What a good, non-sticky surface. One 16-ounce tin is almost a lifetime supply (depending on what age you get started in this). I recommend "TreWax"!

--Joe
