We pass this place on our way to one of the stakes. We call it the Furniture Super Store. All the furniture here is made here. Pretty much out of doors. There is not electricity, hence, no power tools. Everything is done by hand. They make beds, chairs, couches, dressers, tables, etc. All by hand.

They even make rattan furniture here. a little man sits on a stump and whittles the branches of some tree, maybe the rattan tree, to the right size for weaving, then the next man weaves the furniture. The couch and chairs in our apartment here came from this place.

They do not joint or veneer it is all hard hard wood. Some of the work in very impressive.

They don't like you taking pictures, so I had to fake phone call on my iPod and snap what I could, so the quality is poor, but I thought that some of you wood workers might appreciate this.
