Scenes of work
Kidori (timber sawing)

Wooden nails are heated together with bran to drive out the internal moisture and spread the oils in the bran over the surface.
Aligning and assembling components
Finely-grained bark is used for the doors. This determines the impression given by the chest. All processing is performed by the skilled hands of craftspeople. Their experience and intuitive feel brings out the beauty of the paulownia wood to its utmost.
The chests are both beautiful and airtight. When a drawer is gently pushed in, the adjacent drawer will smoothly slide outward.
