Woodworking in Burma, furniture.

Nice furniture was really scarce in Burma. Most houses, temples and monasteries were quite empty inside, and the hotel rooms only had typical cheap and ugly hotel room furniture like you find everywhere. We didn't visit any musea, maybe there are some interesting ones in Yangon?

Anyway, here are some nice ones from the monasteries. these cabinets probably have some religous purpose, but I couldn't find out what purpose. Quality of the pictures isn't great, because these buildings are very dark, and I am not a great photographer anyway. Click on the pictures to see larger images.

And I liked this simple bench. Simple as it is, it looks like a nice project for a garden bench.
