Kimura Woodcraft Factory Ltd. is based in Hirosaki City, Aomori Prefecture in Japan. The region is Japan’s number one apple producing area. With an abundance of wood from the apple tree, it is important to consider the entire lifestyle of an apple tree, especially after its fruit bearing period.
The wood from apple tree are full of knots, which makes it difficult to obtain a wide enough surface to be processed for applications such as furniture making. Often they are disposed off as firewood. Kimura Woodcraft attempts to salvage as much wooden surface as possible by hand processing a small section in every apple tree. This labour intensive and time consuming process allow consumers to enjoy the crown jewel of Aomori - the apple tree, beyond the apple fruit.
