Have no idea. I’ve never sold a single item. My wife has the bulk of my projects at 147 with the rest going to presents and gift. If I sold them, for me it would be a job and the fun would end. The wood I buy is all exotic. Maple and Myrtle are the only domestic wood I’ve turned and if they’re not interesting I wouldn‘t turn them.

You made me look up who Sam Maloof is. His museum is actually 60 miles west of us going toward Los Angeles

about the same for me.im in the southbay,gardena. go check it out and take a tour,he's my biggest inspiration for what i do.making his maloof rocker scared the hell out of me but pushed me to places i never attempted before.i met him once at a wood show.he was a very simple humble man.
