This lightweight wooden box helps protect valuable go bowls. The vintage design is something that might as easily be used to store precious pottery. A storage box is great for wooden bowls, as it prevents exposure to moisture and light. It closes with a decorative purple ribbon. It is held together with only wooden pegs.
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 the ideal storage container for a set of size L go bowls. Yellow handkerchiefs are included to wrap the bowls (we would recommend washing these), as well as small handkerchief pads for placing underneath them (or inside the bowls themselves to cushion fragile stones).
Please see the photos for exact dimensions, but each compartment is roughly 14cm square.
This one is used. The lid has developed slight gaps over time. Boxes like this are no longer produced, but modern ones can be purchased from Japan (roughly $120 + shipping) with a Custom Order.
