I was commissioned to make this piece as a Christmas present for the clients husband. The table is made from recycled Ipil. The chairs are also from recycled Ipil and saplungan for the arm rests. The cushions are from leather. Had to make it a six seater as the area could only accommodate a table of 1500 mm diameter. The foam used is memory foam and I must say that it is very comfortable.

Really a fine detailed work. I like the velvet combined on the top. Someday, I will visit your workshop. You are just within my area too. Good to know you are also working with Philippine recycled wood.
Keep it going and enjoy the day.

Beautiful work. I especially like the chairs. A wonderful design and the lighter coloured arm rests are a great design touch. They look so comfortable.

Hi. The finish on this project is two coats of sanding sealer followed by 3 coats of beeswax. The table took approximately 8 days and the chairs from design to finish about 24 days. The hard part about the chairs is all the sanding after the shaping. Thanks all for your comments they make a man feel humble.
