This is my first furniture & first project in my art studio. 7ft tall x 4.5ft wide x 4ft long. I started in September 3, 2010 and finished in October 8, 2010 with the help of one assistant.
It is made out of my dad collection of old wood from 50-150 year old houses found in the Philippines: (1)Mahogany, (2)Tamarind, (3)Narra, (4)Kamagong “iron wood”, (5)Molave, (6)Tangili, (7)Cedar, (8)Palo de China, (9)Cherry, (10)Ipil, (11)Palo Ropa
I made the giant chair as a personal birthday gift to remind myself to “think big” about my future and to keep on dreaming. My birthday was October 10, 2010, which is why I ended up calling my art studio, STUDIO 10.10
...this chair marks the beginning of my addiction to woodworking and my official welcome back to the Philippines.
