Item Description

Caret Down Primary

A very pretty shaped object.

I rotundly a log of 30 centimeters in diameter with a machine called a woodworking lathe.

It is a log but relatively compact, so it is a little difficult for adults to sit.
It also matches the atmosphere of Japanese-style rooms and western rooms.

There is a charm to admire even from a distance even from the vicinity. How about the one point of the interior of the room?

■ What's Gorotans?
Series work that is cut out from the log called "Gorotans."
The reason why it is "bent and hard to use" and "irregular" when I cut down a tree

The base part of the tree which is left behind is called "Gorotan" in the industry term.
It takes a long time for such a large log to return to the soil

In the meantime, if it is swept away by rain or sediment disaster, there is a risk that accumulates large damage to rivers and dams.

It becomes so wonderful when the hand is added to phlegm about being treated such a hindrance.

I hope that even those that are not usually worth it will be able to make a very worthwhile effort by changing their perspective.

■ "What you think is good from the heart" to the next generation
We want to use good things for a long time.
There are four conditions in our work.

*Long-term use
*Life is enriched
*Things that don't get bored
*To be able to fix

It is durable, and the mind is a little more than usual when there is it, and the design which makes you want to touch it is simple, and I try to make such a thing that can be used for a long time by fixing it even when it is broken by any chance.

■ Three Services
"I want you to choose to find a partner and raise it like a child."

Materials: Japanese cedar
finish: Bees Wax
