This chowki was recently made by the owner himself out of his passion for carpentry. The legs of this chowki were made using kikar wood and a piece of plywood was fixed to form the top surface. Due to the use of two different types of wood, the chowki was painted to create a uniform appearance and to slow down the weathering process.
