Nice Marudai

Speaking of braids, I got tired of my plain looking marudai and their warped wood, so I bought some mildly nicer wood and gave it a nicer finish.

Swanky Marudai

It's made entirely of poplar wood (poplar 1x12 for the top and bottom and 23" poplar dowels for the legs), stained with a water-based rosewood stain, and finished with a glossy acrylic polyurethane.

Finally, a marudai that looks like furniture instead of equipment.
