Where to get wooden furniture made with palochina in Quezon City

Now that I can no longer head outside due to the pandemic, my food blog has been lacking in posts. I wanted to improve my food posts and food flatlays since our dining table wasn't exactly photoshoot material. I suddenly got the idea of getting a wooden table for my food shots.


I stumbled upon Wood Native Manila, a store specializing in woodworks located along Commonwealth Avenue, Quezon City. One of their inspirational photos from Pinterest piqued my interest. It was a short wooden side table. If you try inquiring from other wood crafts shops, you would know that not all can accommodate special requests such as making the legs of the table round. However, Wood Native Manila assured me that they could accomplish my request.


Apart from the wooden table, the wooden try also piqued my interest. This actually seemed more practical for my flatlay shots. My DSLR camera has been broken for months and it is currently under repair so I'm currently using my phone's camera to take photos. The wooden tray made my food flatlays so much better despite taking the photos with my phone.


Wood Native Manila was really accommodating with my requests. They initially offered to have my woodcraft orders varnished but I told them that I would be using the wooden table and tray for aesthetic purposes. They showed me the difference between the colors with and without varnished. In the end, I told them that I liked the pale color so they ended up not having them varnished.

Here are some of my blog photos where I used the wooden table and wooden tray. I used it on my Elevatione review and giveaway post.


Price
Wooden table P1,800 + P180 shipping fee
Wooden tray P850 + P130 shipping fee


I inquired if I could get free shipping if I bought both and they agreed. If you're also located near them, you can also try your luck.


They updated me regularly with photos of my orders. I paid on September 7 and received my order on September 15. It was fairly quick and they also sent me a photo prior to delivering it to my place. They also offer cash on delivery but I paid via bank deposit.


Initially, I wasn't going to blog about this but since I was pretty happy about my purchase, I decided to share it on my blog. There are a few imperfections, although it's not that visible and it doesn't bother me either. You should manage your expectations when purchasing. It's not going to be as perfect as those you see in malls because these are a lot more affordable compared to what you see in malls. These are also made with solid wood, palochina to be exact.
