Traditional Korean furniture differs from other furniture pieces and it is easy to identify. The grain of the wood used to make the furniture differs greatly from all other furniture.
Korean carpenters put a lot of importance in creating beautiful pieces while maintaining the inherent beauty of the wood during the making process. Since ancient times, they avoid using objects like nails to hold the wooden pieces together as nails can damage the nature and beauty of the wood. Natural grooves, pegs, holes, and segments hold the wooden pieces together. The completed Korean furniture looks like an artwork – elegant and beautiful, and it is also functional.
