Raftsman | Driftwood Furnitures in Pangantucan, Bukidnon, Philippines


One of the things that you should not miss once you visit  the Municipality of  Pangantucan, Bukidnon, Philippines and would probably be a must is the RAFTSMAN.  It sounds like a CRAFTSMAN but that is a big NO. Its RAFTSMAN because it is a combination of the name of the owner RAFFY and his CRAFT or CRAFTSMANSHIP in driftwood furniture making. Actually, he is not the master carpenter in all of these craft,  but he only hires a carpenter who is expert in Driftwood Furniture Making. He is fond in collecting old furniture that were made  from a hardwood specie.

After a very tiresome day in conducting field inspection, we then dropped by the place for a late lunch time at 2 pm. 


Aside from furniture making, RAFTSMAN also served affordable meals. I have not taken any pictures of the food we ate because of my starving stomach but surely it tastes real good and  a yummy food. Cooked food while you wait, Raffy will cook for you, the owner himself for 15 minutes.


Here are Raffy's collection of Driftwood Furnitures;

RAFTSMAN - Food & Drinks.

I interviewed Raffy, the owner about his plan this coming Kaamulan Festival and said--he  will display his collection at the Capitol Ground. So what are you waiting for? Wait and grab his collection once he will be in the Capitol Ground, come Kaamulan Festival.

How to get there?

The place is just adjacent to the Catholic Church which can be seen along the National Highway going to Wao, Lanao del Sur. The National Highway is also known as Sayre Highway.

They also served thirst quencher such as beverages. RAFTSMAN is our favorite hang-out after done with our tedious work for refreshment.

  6. These are really cheap in Mindanao. My mother bought a set somewhere in Surigao for only P2000! Still, as the others said, it would be very difficult to bring them here. Hayz.

  7. @aleah.

    It cost now at no less than 10T. Too expensive if you are residents in Luzon. I think, there are also lots of this kind in your place, right?

  8. "I have not taken any pictures of the food we ate because of my starving stomach..." I guess this pretty much sums up how good the food is there. :D
