In Topic: What Makes A Good Mizusashi Good?

Ken, those are absolutely stunning!  Did you use real urushi for the cover finish?
 
They have a look that makes me want to open them and look inside.

It's not urushi, it's auto paint. I go thru the process of sealing, priming and spray painting the wood covers. I retired as an auto painter. There are a few more mizusashi pictures in my gallery.
Aloha, Ken

Ken the cable setup is very similar to the Brent/Amaco I had in my classroom. But then that one costs a bit more this day and age. I think ours was the SR 14 with its own stand.

Pres, the cable set up is the same configuration as the Brent. All the parts were bought at hardware stores. Still using it.
