Tanago rods nearing completion

The wrapped joints are now completely lacquered so all that remains, after firing the rods to straighten them once more, is to lacquer the body of the rods.

  1. Looking good, Adam! I’m looking forward to the final product!
    Do you apply the reinforcing wraps before you fit the joining pieces? – Arlan

  2. Hi Arlan,
    Yes the joints (where each rod insert goes into) are wrapped first, else the bamboo will probably split when you are fitting the inserts.
    All the best,
    Adam
