Stone Chapan
Many areas in Taiwan are known for their local stone. This unique piece was chosen from among dozens for its color, texture, and compact size. Water drains through the top an out a length of hose that can be attached to the brass connector on the front of the stone. Typically this sort of piece is placed on a table, and water drains into a container below the table.

Formosan Cypress Chapan
This piece is made from salvaged Formosan cypress (Chamaecyparis formosensis), an endangered native tree favored for its stability, rot resistance, and pleasant aroma. Its straightforward, solid design features finger-miter corner joints in the base and splined miter joinery in the lid. Water is collected in a stainless steel pan mounted into the main box, removing the possibility of leaky wood joints over time. Draining surface (lid panel) measures 8x12 inches. This is easily a 30-year chapan, and is expected to darken with use over time.
