This board came to Baduk Club from a consignment shop in Osaka.
The board is a standard Matsu (pine) wood or similar. The warm tone could indicate Katsura. The center-cut shows off the heartwood of the tree and has an warm tone. Ginkgo or Plum may also be possibilities.
It stands about 20cm tall with the legs on. The legs are in good shape. The underside is quite clean.
In fact, the board is rather clean without major faults. The rings of the tree make the endgrain pleasant to view, although it does need a good scrubbing, at minimum with a clean dry cloth.
This board is small enough that it would be possible to bundle bowls and stones with it. Please use our Chat Widget to contact us if you would like to explore that possibility.
