I'm planning a piece of work at the moment which is going to involve =
text bound in a scroll format.  I'd like to achieve a likeness with the =
traditional Torah scroll idea, which has a wooden stick with two =
disc-like 'stoppers' at each end.  I am stuck with how to attach the =
paper to the wood.  The paper I'm planning to use might be embalmed in =
beeswax - I'm not yet sure.  I'm going to ask a couple of local =
religious authorities, but would be very interested in feedback from =
this list too. =20

The other aspect to my project is the handles of this thing, which I'd =
like to be able to carve in a fairly detailed manner.  Could you =
recommend a wood which would be soft enough for this, but strong enough =
to withstand being rolled and unrolled?

thanks. =20
