Good day to all,

I would like to share with you guys this three seater version of my Salumpwet
The seat is gouged out of a 4” thick X 20” width X 6’ narra slab. The legs and stretchers are of dungon ( iron wood). The bottom seat stretcher is part of the carved seat, integrated and carved from the same slab of narra. Everything is one piece at the bottom. The back rest slats are steam bent kamagong ( ebony) while the crown is of Saplungan.

This three seater is 8 years old and has ever since been a part of our Tahanan ( Home). It beckons guests to sit on it when they enter my lanai. It is also the same seat on my profile picture.

Have a great day guys!

-- Benji Reyes, Antipolo, Philippines,

Mind blown. I was wondering which guy had the skill to do such an awesome design/build, then I glanced over at the name of the poster. Not surprisingly its Mr Reyes. (I’ll need to develop more talent before I refer to him as Benji)

This is another masterpiece.

This is quite a complicated and elegant piece! You’ve taken traditional concepts and created a unique organic look. Bravo!

This is a beautiful piece of craftsmanship and furniture. I sure like the carved seats and hand work that goes into creating a piece of this size and magnitude. Fantastic.
