Indian chakki’s were built as wooden grain grinding tables. Inside the table basin were two round stones used for the grinding, the bottom stone was fixed and the top stone being turned by a wooden handle to grind the grain. Today these old chakkis are popular as low tables and with a cushion for seating. Each is unique with different patterns of carving and constructed styles, some with metal banding. Most have legs that are joined by a mortice and tenon giving them added strength. All are teak wood and are in good shape with some repairs.
