Eco-Friendly, Bio-degradable Wood Bento Boxes

The Wooden Bento Box is made from milled off-cuts from Camphor Wood that was due to be disposed of due to their size being too small to use for other purposes. Each piece was cut from larger sections then spliced down into smaller pieces and finally sanded ready for construction. The lacquer used is a milky sap collected from trees “urushi” in Japanese which is then heated, filtered and applied in several thin layers and allowed to cure in a humid, dust-free container. Then polished and a final layer applied. Due to the cost, three layers have been applied. Bento boxes dating back to the Edo period (1603 and 1868) would have had up to one hundred layers applied to get their durable glossy finish.
