Dowel Rod ----> Jo?
Alright maybe I'm too much of a DIYer but as I keep having to explain to the college kids that we don't have enough jos for the whole club to practice (huge freshman group this year) I keep thinking about dowel rods.
I mean...it's a stick.
So I am asking for help because I have no clue about wood working/ weapons/ whatever.
By my guess:
1) Figure out how tall I would need it. 5"?
2) Carve off edges?
Any help/ suggestions would be great.
