Howdy All!

I was recently asked to have some of my furniture featured in an art exhibit in a neighboring town so naturally I thought it was a good reason to build some new stuff!

I’m sure many of you have never visited western kanas so I’ll give ya a little known fact. EVERYTHING is red oak. So I decided I would build the whole set out of Bubinga. (people get all excited when stuff is a bit different out here).

I started off with a Maloof lowback chair (which I ended up naming “Walt”). Over the past year or so I have built several rockers and settees but never just a plain lowback. Something I thought was pretty cool about this chair is that it was built from one board.

After that I started on the coffee table. I have seen a whole slew of “Maloofian” coffee tables recently so I thought I would build something different that still matched the chair. What I came up with was a table that floats about 2” off the floor and has a single 21 in deep drawer. The drawer bottom is flocked and i used undercount blumotion slides.

Finally the side table I designed to look a lot like a Maloof pedestal table. Most people have a lamp and a table beside their reading chair so I thought I would just kill 2 birds with one stone. There will be a pendant light hanging from the top of the arm (when it finally shows up in the mail).

As far as finish goes I applied 3 coats of Festool Surfix oil and buffed the crap out of it.

Beautiful craftsmanship Zack, as excellent as always with your work. I hope Walt and his buddies bring in some respectible business for you from this exhibit. Keep, up the good work and some day people will use the term Schaffer instead of Maloof.
