This goban came to Baduk club from a consignment shop in Hyogo, Japan.
The board is a lovely bright yellow color typical of Shinkaya (Alaskan Spruce), with matching legs. You can really appreciate the grain of the wood in the table and the legs. At 13cm, the legs are a bit taller than usual, so the board stands 19cm with them on. You can also use the board without them, and there are 4 rubber pads in place for that.
The board has clean edges and corners with straight lines. It is a hagi board, made of multiple pieces. This is the best construction for thin boards, because if they are made of a single piece then they are more likely to warp over time.
This is a vintage item.
