This lightweight wooden box helps protect valuable go bowls. The vintage design is 100% wood, with pegs instead of nails. However, over time it seems that the box came apart and nails were added in several places. It arrived in Colorado needing some care, so it has been glued in several places for extra cohesion.
A storage box minimizes exposure to moisture and light. This one closes with a decorative ribbon. Cloths or pillows would be recommended to prevent the bowls from rattling against the sides, but note that this box is for storage and not regular transportation.
The external dimensions are roughly 12in x 6in x 7in, with dual internal storage for bowls up to 5.5in wide and 4in tall (14cm x 10cm). I'm not sure whether the wood is paulownia or cedar or something else - it is fairly light at 0.7kg.
These is one is used, but new boxes can be purchased from Japan (roughly $120 plus shipping) with a Custom Order.
