A retrospect of my “Sulok Sultan” which I posted a couple of years back. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/31850 I twisted the legs and stretchers for the client who got this piece. He always dreamt of having a sexy secretary. lol

The top is narra with curly molave breadboards. The legs are sculpted Ironwood (dungon) drawers are dao with balayong drawer pulls. The stretchers are narra and molave.

Have a great weekend guys!

I like it when people think “outside the box”, and you my friend are thinking “outside the desk!” A pleasure to see!

Really nice touch pegging the breadboard with the through mortise joints!

I envy you your choice of native woods. :)

Lovely as the rest of your projects.
I wonder how long will it take for people to start making furniture “Benji style”...

One question: what kind of finish do you use?
