Kinky crafts

Yesterday I went to The Caning Shop in Berkeley. No, I am not making that up-- there really is a store by that name. And I did manage to keep a straight face going in, but just barely.

I bought a handful of rattan and some seagrass rope to make handles. Yesterday I cut, sanded, and varnished. Today I started making handles. The first one turned out pretty nice, if I do say so myself, though the photos don't do them justice-- the seagrass is darker than the rattan, rather than the glowing gold that the overexposed photos would suggest. I'm particularly proud of the turks heads, since the seagrass really wasn't all that happy about doing them.
