Nakdong is a technique that cuts the surface of a odong tree by rubbing it with rice straw or molten it with fire, leaving behind a hard radish and cutting off a light surface. A traditional Korean decoration technique to save the original beauty of trees, blackened colors are naturally revealed, making the deep nature of the trees more beautiful. For this reason, wooden furniture with Nakdong was mainly used in the processing of Sarangbang furniture during the Joseon Dynasty.
The wood tray made of Nakdong technique was decorated with du-seok handlers. The natural wood and subtle white-nickel persimmons naturally blend together as if they were grown together, adding a voracious look to the table setting. The Neunghyungmun is a pattern that is shaped like a diamond. A modern reinterpretation of the oblong style has produced a variety of forms.
