This Saturday (assuming I get back from Az on Friday), Candy and I will be at Pittsford Lumber at Noon. If you are planning on doing the bokken carving class, this is a good opportunity to select your piece of wood with some guidance. Things we'll review are cost, ease of work, weight, durability, suitability for purpose (wall hanger; kata; kumi taichi). Also some woods are not good for constant handling (can cause allergic reactions).
Please RSVP via the "Have a Question" link on the right of the page so I know if anyone is able to go.
