The norms of wood's beauty

Kyoto
Of all the parts in a traditional wooden house, the best wooden is used at the pillar of Tokonoma.

This partly-cut pillar is just the same as the one used at Tokonoma, and the surface is partly cut to show guests how the annual growth ring is and how nice the wood is.

It is said that the more dense the lines are, the better the wood is.
