This board came to Baduk Club from a private home in Kumamoto prefecture.
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 orangish color.
It stands 20.5cm tall with the legs on.
The rings of the tree make the endgrain pleasant to sit at, and ripples of crossgrains on the top and bottom give a feel like wind on water. The sides show straight lines. The photos were not very good because of the glare.
