It is a log that utilizes the techniques of Yoshino cypress, which has beautiful gentle lean meat, and Nara's traditional winter craft polishing log. The surface of the main body is polished and the texture gives you peace of mind and peace of mind. In the process of changing seasons (temperature and humidity), the color becomes glossy and glossy. The material is Japanese cypress for grades 40-70.
In the <Nihon Shoki> written in the Nara period, it is written that "Sugi and Kusunoki should be used for boats, Japanese cypress should be used for palaces, and Japanese cypress should be used for caskets." As the word suggests, cypress has been widely used in large-scale buildings such as castles, palaces, temples and shrines from ancient times to the present.
The reason is the strength and durability of cypress. It is said that Yoshino cypress is also used in Horyuji Temple, the oldest wooden building in the world that was built 1300 years ago.
The top and bottom are made to order with a large sawmill to make them parallel. From there, sandpaper is applied by hand to create a nice finish.
There is almost no wobbling and it is suitable for multiple uses. The back is split (processed to prevent large cracks and deformation due to shrinkage of wood).
〇Sugi and Hinoki in Nara Prefecture 〇
We conducted several experiments on cypress and cedar grown in the prefecture.
As a result, Japanese cypress and cedar produced in Nara prefecture are compared with those produced in other prefectures in terms of "suppressing the growth of Escherichia coli", "suppressing the growth of mold", "repelling mites", "inactivating viruses" and "reducing ultraviolet rays". It has been proven to be more effective than production.
