Clacking together each two
chunks of oak firewood
to get the sawdust off
I keep expecting kabuki

And I keep expecting sumo...

In sumo, one side of the "ki" is held still while the other is clacked against it. In the other traditional arts where the clappers are used, both sides are swung together to make the sound. In both instances, the "ki" are usually made from the red wood at the core of the cherry tree.

And now you know the rest of the story :)

You should hear this oak do its perfect heart-of-cherry imitation!
