Sumitsubo.
Japanese ink pot

This is a Sumitsubo – ink line made for my Japanese tools.

The post is pictures from the blog:
http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/25624


Pictures:
1. Sumitsubo – ink line with the Marking Pen – Sumisashi.
2. A piece of fire wood I was given from a friend starts to take form.
3. Shaping.
4. Carving the few details.
5. Preparing the Sumitsubo.
6. My drawing of what I wanted.



The Sumitsubo in use.


Hope it can be to some inspiration, who knows perhaps even a Sumitsubo.

Best thoughts,

MaFe

Mads, You consistently out-do yourself ! You have found the color black I see. Very, very nice.

Mafe, you always have the most fun projects on the go, wonderful stuff that gives us a smile.
I like the scale drawings you do for your projects, the attention to detail your architect training provided and that you are not afraid to deviate from the plan when necessary.
I have been working more on leather projects the last three weeks..a belt, an i-pod case, a guitar strap and a dog charm.
You helped kindle my leather-work fetish with some of your posts and blogs :)
I will post my Sophia’s Bernese Mountain dog charm to send a smile your way.
Sorry guys no wood was harmed in the making of this dog…made from leather scraps and a painted tongue

Ha! Mads another very interesting and useful tool. That that insightful architectural mind can unfold. Your shop must be full of such wonderful tools. Oh to create such marvels and to have them within your reach. Must be exciting!!!!!!!!
