I am not sure what happened to posting my Medium Maloof chairs, I made them in Mar – Apr 2017 but it seems I never posted the finished items as a project.
Medium being:- able to seat an adult or a child but not being suitable to sit at a dining table with them.
I didnt realise they were until today when I went to comment on Bob Kassemeyer’s Rocking Chair.

So late as here they are, .. and most of the information relating to the construction is contained within the blog.

So where are they today?
2 x have gone to Grandkids in Menai Sydney NSW.
1x Is still sitting on our verandah awaiting collection from my wifes friend Estela who created all this work for me and never turned up to collect it, ..or pay me!
1 x I have stashed away, nobody is getting their hands on it, .... I am gunna sit on it!
If your a Sam Maloof fan you may appreciate them otherwise they are just fancy kids chairs.

-- Regards Rob

Great looking Joinery, How about a picture of the finished product?

Hell rc, they’re bloody good… you actually have tallent that should not be wasted making comments to my mundane statements.

Did you make 4 tables? It’d be a shame to orphan them.
PS.
Where’s the rocker… and playing Elvis records while sitting in one does not count…

Yes, Superb those chairs, lovely and strong, nice and chunky looking. Great Joinery and finish.
And the wood selection and colours are great.
You are kind to have given 3 away and only kept the 1.
Have a good weekend.

Not sure what happened to the images at the post first attempt,...at least they were not sideways.
Maybe my original 2017 post dissapeared entirely just like Edmund.
Anyway they are there now, so to answer the enquiries.

anthm27: You must have been quick off the mark as because I did a check on the post and saw the mess.
As for giving them away 2 x went to the family the one for Estela she is going to get hit up for $100.
The actual value considering mateials and time I would think be well over $400 each. (then try and adda profit)

I saw a Maloof chair on ebay it was $11,000 and I was not sure if it was a real mcCoy either. I had the add stuck on the chair for Estela for a while but it must have fallen off.

woodshaver Tony C: Yes my outdoor garden area is my workshop love it and I am used to it now. The grain effect was what prompted to do the post as I knew i had done contrasting work but could not find it, mind you all the blogs are still there.

LittleBlackDuck: thanks for the support and I enjoy the “stooging” around every now and then, it makes for a break from the physical woodwork, to PC based Woodwork (if you could call it that)

I didnt make any tables, however No 4 Son and I did a repro/rework on a set All made from original rough sawn timber

Otherwise your way too cheeky!

rc, it just dawned on me that you do a lot of work over the grass. What type of shop-vac do you use to pick up the sawdust and do you use a filter to give the ants some sort of a chance? Do you re-plant the grass that gets sucked up?

PS. Just building up my comments quota as I’ll be away for a few hours on my next hospital visit and they won’t let me take a laptop into theatre…

Geeze, I wish I had the space, not to mention the talent, to make furniture. Few things turn me on like a well-crafted chair or table.

What’s the wood? It’s gorgeous.

Mark Wilson:- The timbers comprise of the following
Tasmanian Blackwood, Mostly in the seat and some legs
European and Queensland Walnut, again composites in the seat
New Guinea Rosewood just about all the legs and back rest,
and Oak completing the seat composites

Rob, I’m wondering what do you do with everything when the sky wants to water your grass and give the ants a bath?
