Hi there again,

I'm looking for a kind soul who might spare minute of their time to translate this
packet of wood glue instructions.
I just need the basics on how to apply it and how long it takes to dry!
I am making a Kuripe from bamboo and want to make sure I get it right.
Please see enclosed attachments
thank you thank you thank you lovely people :)
Hugs Gin

That's multipurpose glue; you can use the remainder on other stuff.

Turn the cap around and use it to poke a hole in the tube. Spread it on, put the pieces together. Usual stuff. Firms up in 15 minutes, done in three hours.

The glue remains tacky even after drying so if you have any exposed on the surface ("squirtage" from between the pieces) be sure to wipe it off right away or it will turn into a dust magnet.

Post a picture when you get done and it will save me having to google up what the heck a Kuripe is.

Hi Mike,
thanks for that, here is a picture of my Kuripe, half done, a work in progress.
And what it should eventually look something like.
It is used for snorting Rapé which is an Amazonian shamanic snuff.
Smiles, Gin

Looks like you did a very nice job on the cut and matching up the pieces. Nice work.

If you have any of the stuff you snort with it, I hope it is a legal substance to have in Japan. If it isn't (or you're simply not sure), then for the love of god never have it on you when you leave the house and if you have any left when you get ready to leave, flush it.

Thank you, I get it from Shamanic Snuff |
I think it's legal, I know they sell it to countries throughout Europe and America
some shamanic snuff concoctions contain yopo seeds which contain DMT
it's fine in the West ...I think. Don't know about Japan :)

Assuming customs calls it a tobacco product, you are allowed 500 grams. If, however, they call it a stimulant, you could be in trouble.

Are you planning on using it in public?

God no, it's a personal, private thing, not for show. It's helps with clarity and present moment awareness. home use only. :)

If you don't know, then treat it like it is illegal here. Even if it isn't, you don't want the hassle that will go with waiting for the cops to figure that out if you get stopped with it on you.
