    une piece originale et rare
    By lippatrice
    this himitsu bako is a magnificent work. The design is quite unusual and rare. the colors of the different woods used form a nice contrast while harmonizing perfectly
    the work to achieve this work is difficult as the craftsman says and he also made a border around the box adding an additional difficulty
    the panels slide perfectly and the opening is really different from other himitsu bako
    It is as beautiful flat as standing on a support
    a surprising and very limited work!
    Thank you Hiroyuki
    Seller's response
    Thank you for your wonderful comments and good star rating. Certainly, hexagons shape are more difficult to produce than squares. I will make more unique boxes in the future. Your message gives me a lot of motivation. Thank you Patrice!
