In Japan, it's the birthplace of castings stove in HAKODATE, but this stove is thought also such the industrial heritage that it is very precious.
According to “Stove Museum” written by Mr.新穂栄蔵 (Eizou Shinpo), it has been said that, in 1880's, in Japan a passenger train made in the United States of America was furnished with a coal stove.
After that, these stoves were producuced in Japan.
It's probably those woodpattern has been made from 1945's to 1950's by Japanese.
It's the pretty plump shape of stove that looks like haed of octopus, the DHARMA doll, the globe, so that it's called TAKO stove, DHARMA stove, and the globe shaped stove.
Here, we call it TAKO stove!
It's the image of octopus in Japan, like this TAKO ．．．
In those days, the most steam locomotives were fueled by coals, so that the TAKO stove in the train also had used coals.
These days, we can make use of wood chips.
Would you like in your living room, in your study, as an interior decoration ?
We call the inside of（ the global ) woodpattern the“core (中子取り：なかごとり)”.
The surface of the core has been covered with 3 millimeters ( about 1/8 inch ) wax, so that I will scrape the old wax off in order to coat neatly with adhesive, paint, and so on.
It's important for this stove to do elaborate work, for that matter, for my work.!
Round and round badly damaged, so then I'll make a new pattern.
1. I'll produce it that have red pine of a thikness of 10 millimeters cropped more or less dimensions.
2. I'll set up it on wooden lathe and begin to shave exactly according to the
After that also, I'll go on not to mistake .
3. I'll carefully finish it off with sandpaper.
Because I want it to be completed beautifully !
4. At last, I'll coat the “round and round” with lacquer.
The fourth project is finished,
and the next one will be “Project to reproduce the stove！ 5~.”
