We finally got my dead Mother-in-Law’s stuff. Among all of it, the one thing my wife and I wanted the most was the hand-carved table and chair set. Like many of her things, it is a bit more ornate than I would normally have, but it is pretty cool. Even more, it is great to eat at a table and sit on comfortable chairs! We were eating meals gathered around the ol’ cardboard boxes on the floor before setting this up.
It is almost a shame to cover the table with dishes and food. The relief carving below the glass depicts a country Filipino scene with farming and celebration. There is also a matching china cabinet, but that is for another drawing.
