When Mr. Chang Mu was running the Woody Joe, he also was the president of the Changmu textbook brand. (Changmu teaching material is mainly engaged in the manufacture of wood products. The brand was established in 1967).
We are welcomed by a logged of wood and Mr. Chang Mu Bao Hong, the son of Chang Mu Ze Nan, who is in charge of the company’s operation.
You can find about 60 kinds of wood here. If you take different sizes into account, we can sell as many as 2500-3000 kinds of wood nationwide. It took a lot of time to air dry the wood.
Just like making models, we can see Mr. Chang Mu’s attitude and idea in making wood.
All kinds of toys displayed on the inside of the production center come into our view.
Although the products made by woody Joe are all scale models, you can see more freedom and meet the needs of hand-made products here.
If you have 100 timbers, the condition of these 100 timbers will be totally different. Just like people, each one has a unique expression, which is very interesting. Of course, this is also reflected in the products of woody Joe.
The wood grain of each product is different. The color and the texture is also changed with time.
Even in the delicate model, you can experience the diversity that only wood can show it, which is the charm of woody Joe products.
“This is our secret base”, the person in charge of the factory smiled and introduced to us the laser cutting machine that supports the exquisite product manufacturing of woody Joe.
“We have used laser cutting machine in the development and design stage of model products for a long time, but it is not used much in actual manufacturing. Later we thought whether we could also use laser cutting machine in model manufacturing. This is also the beginning of our production model with laser cutting machine.
However, not all parts are made by laser cutting machine.
If all of them are produced by laser punching process, they will lose the pleasure of making models. There is a certain difficulty in splicing hand-made parts and laser made parts, which is also the fun.
The selling point of our model is not only exquisite, but also the pursuit of the unique pleasure of wood.
Let’s return the topic to our son Bao Hong.
The “wood” in “evergreen wood” means woody, and the Joe means “immortal”. My name was given by my father. The word “Bao” to mean cheap wood and “Hong” to mean broad. In fact, it means that people with lofty mind can make more money (laughter).
Mr. Bao Hong’s obsession with wood is in the same vein as his father’s, which is unmatched.
I don’t know if you have such an impression. For example, when you were a child, you didn’t maintain anything made of plastic bottles or cartons, while things made of wood were often preserved. This is the soul of wood, the embodiment of strength.
The products of woody Joe are not all finished when they are finished.
You can slowly experience the changes of wooden models in the next few years, and such charm will continue in the parent-child generations.
