Hello everyone! How are you doing?
I think there are many people who are having troubles or are having a hard time due to the influence of the new coronavirus. I hope that these things will come to an end quickly. At times like this, everyone is amazed with the power of Japanese tea.
For more information on the antiviral effect of green tea catechin (EGCG), which is abundant in green tea, on the new coronavirus, please see this article.
And today, I would like to report on the tea box remake, which is one of the many Obubu winter projects (although it’s already spring …) that I would like to send you some bright news. I will!
As we all know, at Obubu, the idea of warming up in the spring and summer with the many activities was put into practice during the winter when the farming work was calm and we had time for other projects. There are a number of so-called winter projects, plans to create a wonderland of Japanese tea.
In this year’s example,
These are the winter projects.
And the tea box remake was one of them!
When we all organised the warehouse, many tea boxes emerged from the dark!
Could this be used for something interesting? As a result, I tried to repurpose it into a postbox this time!
First, use sandpaper to clean the dirt and create a smooth surface to the box, and decide where to attach the hinge.
From there, apply varnish to the entire box, improving the weather resistance and giving it a beautiful colour!
