Back in 2005 we purchased a home outside of Cuenca, Ecuador. We had very little furniture and really weren’t ready to buy any. So, with only a handsaw and a screwdriver I built us a rustic table to set on the front porch so we could enjoy the sunsets and tea, coffee …etc. at the same time. I bought a small wood rasp (lima in Spanish) and some sandpaper which helped spruce it up a little. I had a wood burning set with me so I burned Mayan Glyphs in the top even though the Ecuador indigenous were Inca.
I have no idea what kind of wood it is. They were just old boards that were on the property and you use what is available. I do know that it is very heavy and very hard wood. It’s a simple design but has given us much enjoyment. Everyone who comes by asks about the designs. Definitely a “One of a Kind” and destined to be a family heirloom.
