I should write a book: 101 uses for discarded wood flooring. I have a pile of the stuff and may need to see a specialist to stop hoarding it.
This might be entry #1 in such a book. The Taiji practice sword. My mother-in-law is an exercise fanatic and, being Chinese, has become proficient in Taiji sword exercise routines. When she visits us, she can’t bring her sword so I made this for her. This is a great way to get familiar with the spokeshave.
