Our expertise lies in the precise processing of wood and meticulous manual finishing.

However, recent developments have posed challenges to the perpetuation of traditional manual processing, meticulous finishing, and the precise machining techniques inherent in older yet simple and accurate machinery. In response, we have endeavored to preserve these techniques in a modern context.

Product Features


- Crafted by a wooden mold manufacturing company with a 75-year history.

These specialists are renowned for crafting molds for automotive engine parts casting, demanding top-notch quality, using wood.


- Utilizes unique facilities for wooden mold manufacturing.

Specializing in precision, each item is meticulously shaped to exact specifications from initial blueprints. Although not suitable for mass production, each piece is carefully sculpted using wood CNC machines calibrated to 0.01mm increments.

Offered in Walnut and Black Cherry variants, these woods are commonly utilized in upscale furniture manufacturing. Utilizing wood of the same caliber sourced local famous manufacturing of furniture from Fuchu City, Hiroshima Prefecture, the resulting products exhibit a luxurious aesthetic.

Utilizing the aforementioned premium wood materials, each product is meticulously processed and assembled to ensure exceptional quality and durability.


- All-natural colors.

- Hand-finished.

Each product undergoes meticulous hand polishing and finishing, a testament to Matsuba Factory's expertise in manual wood processing. This ensures that every item is crafted with precision and care.


- Oil finish. (walnut)

An oil finish using safe Livos Ardvos oil, compliant with high-end solid wood furniture standards, is applied. Unlike urethane finishes that may inhibit wood breathing, the oil finish allows the wood to maintain its natural characteristics and texture, providing a rich sensory experience.


- Urethane Coating. (Maple)

Maple is naturally light in color and prone to staining, so it is finished with a urethane coating.


- Safe and reliable oil.

We use "Livos Ardvos," a transparent penetrating oil specifically designed for broadleaf trees. This oil provides excellent water repellency and enhances the wood grain with a silky sheen. It deeply penetrates the wood while maintaining its ability to breathe, thanks to its high oxygen permeability. The finish achieves a soft matte appearance. Additionally, it has been certified to meet the German standard (DINEN 71 part 3), ensuring its safety for use.


- Finished with beeswax cream.

Our products are finished with beeswax cream sourced from "Oyama Seizai" in Toyama Prefecture. The application of this cream noticeably improves the texture of the wood, allowing for enjoyable maintenance and care by yourself.
