The tops and legs of the traditional Korean table come in various forms. Of these, 12-sided table is easy to use in everyday life and the form is familiar to us. The 12-sided storage box is a multi-purpose box made of pine trees. The height of the box higher than the knee is suitable for use as a small plate.
Pine trees are the most common tree in mountainous areas across the country, and grow well everywhere. Pine wood is hard and does not decay and does not form, curl, or crack. So it was used to make palaces or temples. The 12-sided storage box is made of strong pine, and the texture is smooth and natural.
