Hey ! so since ********.com decided to start a site about kendamas i got a bit more interest into them but i just dont wanna 20 $ + shiping for one beacause i might not like i decided that i’ll use the stuff that we have at my school for free ! so i have diffrent question about kendamas :
what would be good dimensions for a beginer ?
is there a wood in particular that is better ?
do i need to aply a coating to the wood or i can play it raw ?
do some of you have experience in making some ?
and what i was thinking about is that i will use a sharpened cylindar wooden stick for the handle and the spike-ish thing that the ball sit on. I will use rectangular block that i will transform into a cylindar, drill a hole to stick the wooden stick in, and i don’t know how yet , concave the hand to catch the dama (dat developed vocabulary 8) ) and take another shorter prism, transform it into a cylinder and do a hole but only half way ,concave it for the ball and stick it in the unsharpened edge of the stick
