This is Masame Go board with legs (6.8-sun/20.7 cm thick) made by famous craftsman Mr. Torayoshi YOSHIDA.
Ichi-jo-saku (一如 作）means "made with Ichi-jo spirit" is the proof of his work.
This Masame board with legs (6.8-sun: 20.7 cm thick) is made from about 1,000-year-old Honkaya wood grown in Yunnan Province, China. The material wood has high level of oil content and the wood quality is as great as Japanese Honkaya, that produce great feeling when placing a stone. The top surface's grain patterns are very elaborate and totally even between each ring.
The lines of a board are marked using Tachi-mori, the skill of drawing lines using a Japanese sword. This traditional technique highlights the beauty of natural grain patterns and the texture of lacquered line is smooth and has also a nice feeling.
The works of Mr. Torayoshi YOSHIDA feature very thin markings lines, that create elegance and beauty.
All four legs are hand-carved according to the color tone of the board and grain patterns to maximize the expression and impression of wood, and to best match with the board.
Such a thick Masame board is extremely rare, as this big diameter of Hyuga Kaya wood can be hardly available recently.
Beautiful and stately board overall. Especially, the surface of top board is extremely beautiful with no color irregularity.
This 23.6cm-thick board is the super high grade with extraordinary presence.
Beautiful board made from Hyuga Kaya wood. Top surface has an involvement of thin tree bark.
