Furo

Also urushi-buro (and urushi-muro, or just muro – in case of bigger rooms for larger lacquerware)) The cabinet used for curing urushi. Typically it consists of a rot resistant wood chest or cabinet with a humidifier or a bowl with water or a wet towel. A furo is necessary for curing urushi as urushi requires humidity (between 65% and 90% relative, depending on purpose) and warm (21-26C) temperatures to cure properly.
