Tanago rod project

I’m lacquering a tanago rod for a friend (I had no part in the making of the rod).  It has some quirks but the bamboo is fairly sound and the hera-style grip is a novelty.  When working on another rod over the New Year holidays my raw urushi ran out so I ordered some more from Joboji.  This is the raw unprocessed urushi tapped from Lac trees and is the most hyperallergenic stuff I use; it also solidifies into the most amazingly rich colour and bamboo rods built using this lacquer end up with very strong, dependable joints.
