"Wood River board" which creates new design
By combining the resin with shapes, colors, cracks and knots that are unique to that wood,
We produce "Wood River board" that there is only one in the world.
Product Summary, Message, Story and Episode:
This "Wood River Board" pours resin into solid wood to create a new design that has never been found in a single board.

(1) Features
Until now, single wood boards have been reduced in value and attractiveness when there are holes, joints, and cracks,
This resin can be poured to create a new attraction.
Furthermore, the characteristics of the river that can be poured into the resin changes greatly depending on the size of the single plate, the way of cracking, the way of bending, the thickness of the node holes and trees, etc.
Resin can produce various expressions by dyeing not only water color such as transparent color to blue but also green, red, brown and black.
This combination can create a "wood river board" that is unique to the world.
It will be a more attractive new product while retaining the warmth and smell that are the characteristics of wood.

(2) Application
Currently, "Wood River Board" is mainly considered to be used as a single plate such as a table or bar counter or shelf board, but it can be processed into a new shape by increasing the thickness of the top board. Currently, we are prototyping for further commercialization.

(3) Further use value of trees
Wood logs and top plates have holes and knots, and those with large bends are greatly reduced in value as market prices.
However, Wood River board can be transformed into a unique design and attraction, and it can be transformed into a unique item that is unique in the world, and if it leads to the creation of new attractiveness and product value of wood I feel it.
