No, I didn’t make this but wanted to share with all of you. We just returned from a 2 month trip to Ecuador. we see lots of this type of furniture especially in the Indigenous areas of the country. However, more and more we see new construction like this…to sell to the crazy “Gringos” for ridiculous prices by Ecuadorean standards. I have no idea what kind of wood this is, just a very cool design. Of course this one was made with hand tools…probably a machete. This was in front of a little restaurant that served only chicken (pollo) cooked over charcoal just outside of Paute Ecuador..

Shouda oughter brought some of that wood back with you on the plane, Dude! I’m sure they would have let you carry it on if you held it in your lap all the way.

Fun stuff!

That is creative but doesn’t look like it would be very comfortable to sit in.
