wood selection and cutting

1 – SELECTION
The hinoki wood boards are chosen one by one according to the necessity and planned use

2 – PREPARATION
The wood is cut as per the required sizes, eliminating soft areas (young layers) and knots, respecting the direction of the grain.

3 – CALIBRATION
The wood is planed to remove the imperfections and bring it to a uniform thickness.

4 – CUT
With a technique borrowed from boat construction, two planks are partially overlapped and hand sawn: so the adjacent boards are originated by a single cut and can match perfectly.
