Why would anyone close a thread about finding a furniture maker ?? Not exactly a conroversial topic.

I think threads auto close after a specified period of time...

To summarize, there are only two verified carpenters: Slick Furniture in cebu city and Boy Wong in lapu lapu (Mactan? fish??)

The one I was told is Ferraren Furniture - forgot who told me, but it's at the southern end of cebu province, takes 3 or 4 hours there??

I had a furniture company come bid a job replacing the cabinet doors with some bevel etc.. like 30 doors.. well the price was 192,000 peso and 3 months lead I think when you get into stuff that requires real tools you pay real prices

10,000 for door is okay. But 3 months?? That means I have to order much earlier before turnover? 

I just need a bed, a nightstand, 2 seater, coffee table and this:

if waiting time is too long I'd have to buy bed from shop. There appear to be fewer and fewer solid wood types now.

Huh?

I have never hired a carpenter before - whatever you find ridiculous I simply can't understand unless you tell me.

Not going to ask locals directly, trust issues.

what you need and what you want is often not possible so adjust or just be happy with what is there .... the point is many will say I am a carpenter but then ask if you have a saw.... I would say your looking for things I have never seen or if they are here I would be willing to pay for

that's the reason I'm drafting and splitting them into small, easily makable parts. 

except the odd shape on the left, what'd be impossible to make? the main one is flat top with many columuns, darkened and lightened, and the right one had curved top but no more complex than the beds they have here.

 

the left one may waste a lot of wood or need many small pieces linked (I drafted it that way, hundreds of flat pieces). But I saw they make totally 3d curved type in Europe. It's not important though.

Okay found the Projekt  in Banilad town centre today, besides the Oppein which sells expensive particleboards with dreadful Chinese labels.

Modern, not traditional. No fancy shapes in showroom but quality is consistent and the makers are not color blind like most contractors here. Price is more than fair.

Will try custom order my first items next month.
