"Hapag Larawan" Console table

This console table is part of my “Tinuhog collection” (“Tinuhog” is skewered in our tagalog language) The combination of the ipil top with its splayed yakal legs and the slated shelves which are pierced through and through with molave wooden rods give the whole piece a light floating effect. This has been used by clients for console tables and TV, entertainment stands.

I like the table. I like the slat for the lower shelf, they look light and they would provide a nice airflow for the electronics. I also like the drawer pulls.

Great piece of work, Benji. I like the variation of flow here, with the apron picking up the curve of the drawers, which ties into the legs, while in a more linear fashion, the step down from the top, through the two shelves below. Nice contrast of straight lines and curved lines.

I was wondering what would be next. I like the drawer handles. I’m sure your clients are pleased.
