How can one improve the lifetime of a goban?

Table of contents

Humidity

Q: Is it a good idea to keep a goban with some dessicant as used in electronics equipment?
Q: Is it better to keep a goban in a box, or leave it exposed to air?

  • keep in an enclosed case, possibly with a source of water (glass, container, ?)
  • avoid dry conditions
  • wood can warp (think also of transport between regions of different humidity). a tatami mat can help stabilising the goban.

Heat

Q: Obviously extremes are always to be avoided; but how far can one go without risking (permanent) warping/cracks...

  • avoid excessive temperatures

Light

Q: has light a desirable effect on wood? or should it be avoided?

  • avoid sunlight
