dried blood red stain, of course, and Tung oil to seal the wood grain.

Nice work, there must be a great demand during the hunting season.

That reminds me of a friend of mine from Zimbabwe. He was in the US as a cultural exchange student originally, but got an H1B visa after that, then married an American and stayed.

Anyway, Masa was living in “International House” – special dorm – and was told that he must attend a dinner wearing his “national custume”. Having no idea what that was supposed to be (since he’s worn pretty much regular clothes – jeans and tshirts all his life), he wrote to his father “Please send me my national custume.”

So, a box arrived. It took him awhile to figure out how to put the thing on, but he found some old National Geographic and figured it out. Then, he was standing waiting for the elevator in the 3rd floor lobby wearing his loincloth and carrying his spear when the director of internation studies came upon him and decided that the national custume thing really wasn’t neccesary. LOL.

Masa’s a good Christian man, great dry sense of humor, but moved to Texas. I need to look him up. Thanks for stirring my memories.
