Tamasudare Magic Mat
(Ta – Ma – SOO – Da – Reh)
The tamasudare is a performance prop based on a popular Japanese toy. Not very many people make these in the United State, and information on them is hard to find if you don’t speak Japanese. I include a basic explanation of the tricks that can be done with it. They are not hard at all. A couple of days of practice and you will get it. A yo-yo is harder.
Made from 5/16″ dowel rod 16″ long.
The mat ends up being around 25″ x 16″.
Each one is a custom order. It takes over a hundred knots to make one of these. Each dowel has to be perfectly smooth. There is quite a bit of work that goes into a tamasudare. Please allow two weeks for delivery.
Feel free to make special requests.
