LACQUER REDONE

An excellent example of displaying the natural wood structure complemented with subtle decoration.

This original saya from a iaito had some serious damage on the lacquer. After sanding the old laquer out a beautiful warm and structurefull wood appeared.

Eventually decided to keep the warm wood patterns while complementing it with some falling gingko leafs.
