Hi Guys, I designed this simple Piano bench for a good friend. The seat is made from ipil while the casing and legs are of Saplungan. The stretchers are kamagong (ebony).

My apologies….I haven’t been posting much lately since I’ve been working on some major pieces for my November exhibit in Manila celebrating my 30th year in the designing/woodworking art industry. In as much as I love sharing my latest works with you guys, I will be posting my new creations one by one after I’ve unveiled it to the public. I pray you all have a fine weekend. God bless!

That’s a Very nice design. Looks like it goes with those long benches you designed.

Welcome, and good luck w the exhibition.

I love the simplicity and solid feel even with the curvrs and big joint corners coming together. I’d think about a piece like this but I’m guessing you just put it together in the middle of other projects? Like how the joints also provide the support. :-)

Great bench Benji, I like Green and Green influence and of course the signature Benji style legs.
