Hi there,

1stly, thank you for viewing my previous project foosball table which was designed and handcrafted by myself. Anyways, here’s a simpler project, a Japanese Low Workbench also handcrafted by myself. Made for a fellow woodworker as an appreciation gift for him (Sarawak Carpenter)

Briefly,

- Handcrafted this Japanese Low Workbench myself.
- Used 200hrs of unplugged woodworking job to complete this piece.
- Woodworking technicalities are sliding dovetails, mortising, flattening & jointing, inlay work.
- Material used are tropical hardwood and softwood, ready made vise, brass rod 3/4”, brass square 3/4”, brass butterfly wing nut, threaded m6 rod
- Dimensions, roughly 40” (length) X 8”(width) X 2” (thickness)
- Finishing with beeswax.
- A video is available here

Your opinion and thoughts on my works is utmost appreciated and love to hear some feedbacks from you guys.

Cheers mate,
Sam MT

Thanks Pottz for the kind words. Those cabinet hinges cum latches design are of Jory Brigham Inspired. Not too sure if his idea and conceptualization was from Sam Maloof—-hahaha—- Sam Maloof Inspired to Jory Brigham Inspired.—-LOL—- No doubt both have their own uniqueness in design ideas.

Anyways, the fluidity in Sam Maloof’s craftmanship was and still is phenomenal and one of a kind. Thus, because of this fluidness in his craftmanship, many furnitures has been labeled “Sam Maloof Inspired” as an honor and gratitude to him.
Cheers mate.
