Item Description

IconCaretDown

It is a drop type when looking directly from the top.
Because it is large, it is possible to sit alone with one child and two people.

It might be good to use it as a sofa table.
Because the grain of wood is tightly clogged, it is stout.
The vines are probably 70 to 80 years old. I think that I grew up slowly in the place where the sun is not so good.

■ 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
