Hey you guys, finally decided to try and build a bokken. Sorry if this is in the wrong section sinz, Feel free to move it wherever you feel appropriate. Anyway b4 i post my pictures here is a little background story. Every once and a while i get little ideas in my head about building somthing or doing something, these momentary lapses in reality actually led me to build the computer i'm typing on Razz. So here i am at work and i decide I finally want to try crafting a wooden variant to the Japanese Katana (the Bokken). For the record I do practice any sort of martial art involving the use of these wooden beauties but hey its somthing else i can knock off my "to do list b4 i die" right? Back to the story, I finish work and drive out the home depot, There I purchase a sanding block a wood carver and a 2 foot piece of oak railing. I was very upset that i could not buy a 4 foot piece to work with but they didnt have any... go figure. So i decide on the spot to go for more of a Kodachi type, which is generally around the same length as a wakizashi ( 2 feet...ish). so here we are back in my bedroom i snapped a picture of the parts. I will be adding more pictures as soon as i get the guts to carve into it. So feel free to discuss any information you may have on constructing, using, maintaining them. Thanks for your time! lookin forward to your responses.

(edit) Ps.... Yes I do need to vacuum! (edit)
