How much does it weigh?
I love the wood grain and very sturdy structure of this product. I will likely put multiple coats of laquer on it, to give a much more expensive look and feel, as it comes as raw wood....

Story Behind the Art
Khun Na and her husband started out sourcing products for customers. Over the years they have seen many designs made by artisans and have been presented with sketches from many clients. They have to interpret the requested design so that it can be fashioned in a manner that the wood workers can make consistently and that is pleasing to the client from their original idea. They try to adapt existing wood workers designs to fit the clients' desires first, as that is what the wood workers know best. They find beauty in the natural inclusions and try to use them as often as possible. These designs grow from trends and ideas that they have seen over the years.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

The pictures of this bench are gorgous. However, the bench that I received was not a solid wood slab like the one shown. It had a couple imperfections in the wood. One on each side of the bench with the first being a 3 inch by 3 inch square, the other is a 1/2 inch by 5 inch run. The artisans have removed the bad areas of wood and patched them with a similar looking wood. If you are attracted to the unique mokeypod wood graining, like me, this "patchwork" may ruin you over all impression of this bench. It's certainly one of a kind and was not what I was expecting from the pictures, description, and $*** price. It's also a little wobbly. I guess what get's sent to you is like a roll of the dice...best of luck.Read More
Bench came in time and as advertised. Fits perfectly and does not wobble. Has a little bit of a varnish smell to it but I assume that will leave in time. Rough edge is not so rough. Basically three pieces to put together and bolts on the bottom. Very heavy because it is pretty solid. Bought for a cabin.Read More
this item is exactly as described. It was super easy to assemble - only a few thick bolts. I (female) put it together myself. It is heavy, thick, rugged wood - exactly what I was looking for. It is HEAVY and natural. It looks great in my entry way. My only con is that it needs to be polished often, as it seems to look dry sometimes. I assume this is just from the change in climate, being that it is from Thailand.Read More
This bench looks great in my bedroom....however it was a bear to assemble. The predrilled holes were not lined up and I had to redrill them out. Took a few hours. if you have someone handy around to help if the same happens to you, I definitely recommend the bench.Read More
