Thank you folks.

Believe or not, Detlef, I use such a camera but am revising my editing techniques.

Kroncew, I have seen old pictures of these in Bagobo warriors' hands, and this is the side they have up with rounded side on the bottom. It appears several museums and catalogs have them upside down. However, I noticed that the tops of these are mortise and tenoned on lashed with rattan. I wonder if in actual use they cut the rattan, which means that it becomes more balanced.

Charles, I got lucky with the wood, but matching the patina close enough, that was hard........
