Just a quick note to say that we do not have good asnaro wood on stock at the moment.
We are embarassed, but we received so many orders in the last 3 months that we run out of stock.
We will try to look for a good supply but the lumber we trust and can recommend is the one cut is Aomori-prefecture (there are restrictions about the number of trees that can be cut).
Since for a bathtub a uniformly and well dried wood is important, we make it dry naturally (no kiln dry) for 12months.
This means probably that we will not be able to make asnaro bathtubs until the end of the year… But I will keep you posted.
Of course, you are welcome to use hinoki of which we have a good stock.
Bye for now!
