About solid wood

Solid wood is mainly used at the woodworking workshop.

The solid material is the natural wood itself. It cleans the air and regulates humidity, giving the blessings of trees to our daily lives.

The wood grain also has a healing effect. It is also good to use solid wood to enjoy the change of color and luster while turning into antique furniture.

Natural color, beautiful grain, gentle texture, and wood scent unique to solid wood. Each feature is different.

On the other hand, there are also disadvantages. Since it is a natural material, the grain may not be uniform or there may be knots even if the material is the same.

And since solid wood breathes and contracts even after it is made into a product, it requires a high level of skill from the creator.

We make furniture, playsets, and wooden toys by making the best use of the goodness of each material.

About materials

The playset of Kiiku Kobo uses hinoki cypress from Kumamoto prefecture.

The furniture is mainly made of walnut from North America, alder, and oak (oak) from Russia.

You can choose the grade you want according to the atmosphere of the room, your taste, and your budget. (Other materials can also be ordered)

The features of each are as follows.

Black walnut

The highest-ranked wood among the existing wood

(* One of the world's three most famous trees along with teak and mahogany)

It is a familiar "walnut" tree in Japan.

The bark changes from dark brown to bright and mellow brown over time

As it changes, the more you use it, the more it tastes.

It is strong and sticky, has little deviation, and has good workability, so it is perfect as a furniture material.

Alder

In Japan, it is also known as American alder because it resembles alder, and it inhabits the northern hemisphere widely.

Alder, which is generally used, forms a light tan to reddish brown pattern as a whole, and has a fine texture. It is a little light and soft, easy to process, and has excellent coating, adhesiveness, and stability.

With its gentle grain and texture, it is often used in furniture, crafts, toys, etc.

Oak

In Japanese, the deciduous tree species group is called oak, and the evergreen tree species group is called oak, which inhabits all over Japan, China, and Russia.

The bark is a medium to coarse, hard wood with a clear grain, especially on the grain surface, which appears as a beautiful pattern.

Another feature is the appearance of a pattern reminiscent of a tiger spot called a tiger spot. The color is dull brown, and it is characterized by being heavy and scratch-resistant.

Hinoki

It is a Japanese endemic species and is distributed from central Honshu to Shikoku, Kyushu, and Yakushima.

The difference between the sapwood is often unclear, the sapwood is pale yellowish white, and the heartwood is yellowish white to pink. The grain is straightforward and homogeneous.

There is little deviation and workability is good. Good moisture resistance, water resistance, and high storage stability.

The texture is fine, and if you finish the surface well, you can get a unique luster.

In addition to being used as a high-class building material for temples and shrines, it is also widely used for construction materials, joinery materials, furniture materials, and curved materials.
