Providing stable service that our store values ​​most.

Thanks for everyone so that our shop has been selling for more than 10 years, the most important of which is" providing stable service ". Although we handle high quality products, we provide as much service as possible before and after purchase so that customers can purchase with confidence because they can not actually see the product. Customers who have used our store have received highly evaluated voices such as call centers and repair receptionists, and we will aim to provide higher quality services so that we do not betray that voice and expectations.

We work with the spirit of "Asahikawa Furniture Creation Charter".

There is a clause," Asahikawa Furniture Creation Charter",which indicates the creator of Asahikawa Furniture. This charter reflects the wishes of the region, which is surrounded by the blessed Daisetsuzan forest.

[Asahikawa Furniture Creation Charter]
1. Create something that people will love.
2. Don't waste wood.
3. Make as many high quality products as needed.
4. Repair and keep using.
5. Raise the next generation of furniture makers.

Using only carefully selected materials,
we aim at furniture that can be passed down for centuries.

In the heyday of Japanese-made hardwood logs, hardwood products made in Hokkaido supported the entire Japanese material market. Then the Japanese-made wood market shrank, and the market trend gradually changed to mainly imported materials from foreign countries. The broadleaf log market that has left Hokkaido is still in operation. Asahikawa furniture craftsmen who continue to watch the log market around them have an unknown and unlimited adherence to the materials. The quality of the wood can be seen from the wood cuts that tell the story of the life of wood Materials, began to take the first step in furniture manufacturing.
In addition, Hokkaido, which has a dry climate, is an ideal place to store wood that hates humidity. Even so, if the wood is not sufficiently dried, cracks or slight cracks are likely to occur during the manufacturing process or after guests receive the goods. The freshly cut raw wood has a moisture content of about 50 to 70%. After one and a half to three years of natural drying, it needs to be further dried manually with a boiler, and it takes more than two weeks to let the wood Water content to 8%. It is precisely because it is a high-quality material that is not prone to violent expansion and contraction, so we can target a century of furniture. This is also one of the processes that Asahikawa Furniture attaches importance to becoming a perfect furniture manufacturer.

There is no compromise on high-performance mechanical technology and skilled craftsmanship.

High-level and uniform material trimmed by the hands of skilled craftsmen. After trimming, it becomes a beautiful basic structure with considerable strength and bright appearance. It was born after one-by-one fine work Asahikawa, furniture that everyone calls "home money" can be delivered to the market.
"The part that the mechanical energy can do is left to the machine." Even if it is called handmade furniture, it does not mean that all the work is made by the hands of a craftsman. The use of woodworking machinery can improve work efficiency and reduce costs. It is precisely because of the craftsman who is proficient in wood characteristics that he is able to skillfully control the machine. Make furniture that will last you a lifetime. The finished product is delivered to you by the hands of an artisan who is proficient in wood characteristics.
