When technical and mechanical problems incubating in one’s mind for so long are solved, the final steps to completing a concept comes within grasp. And just like that, design comes into fruition and everything flows altogether. This was how this Chaise lounge came to be. I had this concept years back but parked it in the back of my head until understood completely.
I laminated slats of ipil and molave to take the shape of the seat and the back rest. The back’s pitch can be adjusted to 5 settings and has a bit of flex (spring) into it. The the base is made from molave. The seat bracket support at the bottom and the adjuster bracket are all dungon (iron wood). Crown are saplungan while all locking keys are ebony. This picture was taken on my first lounge on the finished piece. I guess my expressions says it all. LOL
My great father, Don Severino Reyes, playwright ( a.k.a Lola Basyang) http://lumberjocks.com/projects/28476
authored a book entitled “Juan Tamad” the story evolved around the life of a lazy boy named Juan.
all woods used are reclaimed as with all of my projects.
