Antique Makha Wood Bench / Table
$ 8,500 USD
Originally part of an old Thai boat, the wood is estimated at 200 years old. Thai origin Makha wood is a highly prized hardwood and valuable as it is a restricted species and no longer legal to harvest in Thailand. The acrylic legs are manufactured by the same supplier to NASA. They have beautiful optical qualities and immense strength. With a load factor x 11, they can easily support 1,000 kg in weight. Thai heritage and history are slowly being lost. I hope my work is seen as continuation to give new life to old Thai timbers which carry the energy and history of the past. Reincarnated into functional sculptures to be enjoyed for generations to come.
