My chair was derived from Charles Brock’s take on the Maloof original. The tools and techniques selected were taken from much of Chuck’s advice (who likely has hundreds of chairs under his belt), a lot of which comes from the original tools used by Maloof himself. I then put the tools and techniques through my own personal filter in hopes of further lowering the barrier to entry. Woodworking is not surgery. Many things I build, I’m building for the first time. But that doesn’t mean it’s my first time taking a tool to wood. Nor is it my first time teaching other people how to do things. :)

SeventyFix, if you are a Facebook user, you might consider joining our private Guild Facebook group. There you’ll be able to contact numerous other Guild members who’ve gone through this build. You might have a little better luck finding folks who can swap the exact tools you need.
