Oak Village: An Inspiring Japanese Woodworking Company

Whenever we see or hold something well designed and well made, I think it makes us feel better, think better, and in odd ways, live better. A furniture company in Japan, Oak Village, is interesting not only for the story of its founder, Tadashi Inamoto, who started his career in nuclear physics, but for its far-sighted approach to forest management and its impeccable design for furniture and for the residential and commercial wood buildings they construct.

A short video on the company is found here:
