This is another piece from my recently concluded KOLEKTOR SERIES 2012 exhibit. “Kaha-pehan” is a coffee table with 12 drawers designed and computed to fit on its 4 sides… sort of a puzzle where you can actually loose your keys by forgetting which drawer on which side you placed it. The carcass with the drawers were first built before sculpting around it. Sanding was part of the sculpting process to accentuate the ridges and lines. The face drawers are 2.5” thick molave ( philippine teak) to be able to gouge out the drawer pulls as part of the sweeping lines around the chest. four 3” high by 2” diameter Amboyna burl pegs were positioned onto the balayong top to hold the 3/8” thick glass. The face drawers are carved from Molave, the drawer sides, and rails are ipil.
“Kaha-pehan” has found it’s new home after the exhibit. You can see more photos of “Kaha-pehan” On my like page https://www.facebook.com/benjireyes.
Have a great weekend guys!
