This lightweight wooden box helps protect valuable go bowls. The modern design ensures minimal exposure to moisture and light, while also being easy to open. It closes with a ribbon and is held together without metal fasteners.
Paulownia is called the Princess Tree, and has great weather resistance due to its low moisture content. It also has a high tolerance for heat and flame, but it can only insulate so much so please do not store your go equipment near heat sources or direct sunlight.
This is the ideal storage container for a set of XL go bowls. This one has a patina from age. An inscription on the underside is from New Years Day, 1981. Please see the photos for exact dimensions, but each compartment is roughly 15.5cm square.
This one is used, the cotton ribbon has been replaced with a synthetic one, and it has been reglued in spots. Marks do appear, as the wood is relatively light and soft. New boxes can be purchased from Japan (roughly $120 plus shipping) with a Custom Order.
Ships from Colorado, USA (usually UPS or USPS). Please allow 3 days for handling, then you should receive an email with tracking information. 16x11x7 2.3 lb
