Japanese Oak box makers piece 1150 x 170 x 3mm re-sawn from kiln dried planking with a sanded finish.
Photo is of a typical piece.
Japanese oak is much finer grained and milder to work than European or American oak and is eminently suitable for fine work in cabinet making and box making.
Our Japanese oak is quarter sawn unless otherwise stated.
This timber was much admired and regularly imported in the 1950's and 1960's but has not been available since that time. These pieces have been prepared from very old stock and it would be fair to assume that the wood is about 50 years old.
