My Dansu is Home!


Recommended Posts

Just drove this home from Louisville, KY. I was able to borrow my father-in-law’s SUV. It fit in the back perfectly. 
 

I need to do some slight modifications of the drawers, but I think it looks nice. It’s a perfect fit for my living room.

Your tansu looks nice there.
(Hope there are no earthquakes in your area though.)

We have had one very small one that I felt in the last 25 years or so. Apparently we had one hell of a storm the other day. My wife and I missed it as we were in Kentucky at the time.

don't rest your swords on the TSUKA as this might damage your SAYA in case you have a real blade mounted. 
 

 Currently, there is just a tsunagi fitted in both sets of koshirae. I suppose I should remove the kogatana from the wakizashi koshirae and the saya might fit that way.

Charles,

The TANSU is simple but really nice! 

 

Wow, never knew this until now. Thanks.

Very handsome!

Can I ask what modifications you made to the drawers?  Did the drawers come with sword racks?

The drawers didn’t come with racks and that is what I need to add. The chest and drawers are made with paulownia, so it is very light in weight. I need to find a source of paulownia here in Ontario to make the racks.

Basswood is easy to work with, and can be sourced in pretty large blocks for relatively little cash:

Basswood is a great suggestion! Thanks!
