Title: Custom furniture in Manila?
Post by: Paul B. on July 31, 2010, 11:37:41 PM
Does anyone know someone who builds custom furniture or knows where I can go? I have very simple designs for some furniture (bed, night stand, table) and I can\'t find anyone to do this for a reasonable price. Would really appreciate a lead.

Comb this category on Sulit. I\'ve seen ads for custom furniture manufacturers there before.

I\'ve been using Sulit, AyosDito, various other sites and referrals, with no success.

So far I\'ve sent messages to 13 different general contractors, interior designers and furniture fabricators.

I\'ve gotten 5 quotations so far.
One was very reasonable but the contractor decided he would not work with me.
The others were out of my budget. For example, one person quoted me P40,000 for a very simple bed frame.

Check local craftsmen. Check, Malolos anGuiginto along the old highway.
Good luck.
