Here is what is included in this kit:

I've been braiding with a foam disk since 2006. In 2009 I bought a small marudai with no well (the tapered center that leads to the hole) and struggled mightily with making braids on it. So I stuck with disk braiding, thinking I was not coordinated enough to work on a marudai. Early in 2014 I was persuaded to try again and directed to this fabulous kit. The first day I got it and set it up, I was able to make a satisfactory braid immediately and braided with my marudai almost every day since then.
I have this kit with the 24 inch legs so it can be used comfortably while sitting in a chair. This is a quality piece of wooden furniture and it does not look out of place in my living room. The tama are just as lovely as the stand, so loaded up with nice thread it looks like a piece of art.
