  1. Sam Maloof Inspired Display Stand

    This project resulted from concepts seen in Sam Maloof's music stand and his reading stand. Its a small table approximately 24" high x 16" at the base. The wood is Cherry with Purple Heart accents. Yes, it will adjust up and down via the wood screw handle and tapped pedestal. I made it for my...
  2. sam maloof inspired low back chair

    I just finished a set of 4 Sam Maloof inspired low back chairs. I made these chairs with Black cherry, and finished them with 5 coats of Sam Maloof finish. The project took about 275 hours to complete. Shaping was done by band saw, spoke shave, power grinder and finally rasps and sanding. Thanks...
  3. sculpted black walnut Rocker (hal taylor design )

    Here's another rocker I made. This was a retirement gift for my father. His favorite wood Is black walnut and I couldn't disagree walnut is my favorite too . There's a special bastogne walnut Rocker I made in my projects list . I had two perfect planks Of 8/4 thick walnut that were 13 inches...
  4. Maloof Rocker

    This chair was made following the instructions of the wood whisperer. Made of mahogany and katakox for the plugs (Mexican ebony). I have two strips of maple and one of walnut in the rockers. Finished using danish oil and one coat of tried and true oil with beeswax. I waxed the whole chair with...
  5. Sculpted Rocker

    Sculpted rocker made of Cherry. I know there are quite a few similar rockers posted using plans from Hal Taylor. Here's my shot at one. I used two sequential slabs of very wide cherry. (picture) The only thing I changed from the plan is the arm design. I made mine a little more round to suit...
  6. Another Maloof style rocker

    The Maloof style rocker seems to be almost as ubiquitous as Norm's router table and here is my attempt. This is my first rocker (there will be others) using the plans from Hal Taylor ( http://www.rockingchairs.net/ ). As this is my prototype, I have more than a couple of ideas on how the next...
  7. sculpted maloof side table in claro walnut

    I wanted to make a side table for my bastogne walnut Rocker (also in my projects section ) . I went through a few of my claro walnut slabs and found one for the base and one crotch slab for the top. Again I apologize for the photo quality. At the time of these photos I had put on two coats of...
  8. Rocker

    I was fortunate to see Sam Maloof demonstrate for our club last year. Amazing skill and a really nice man. Luck followed me and a local cabinet maker, Harold Dodson, agreed to teach me how he makes Maloof inspired rockers. I'm a rookie at this stuff and had no idea how well the final product...
  9. library bench

    Most of the time when I am working on a commission I have the client dictating certain aspects of the build. For this project I received a grant and had complete autonomy with the design. It is made from Black Walnut and has typical Maloof style joinery with ebony plugs over the mechanical...
  10. A Chair

    What can I say I have been in love with this chair design even before I received my latest book The Furniture of Sam Maloof, and to my enjoyment and a little bit of a tease there is a picture of this chair in this book. So after much searching I have about 3 pictures to reference and some rough...
  11. Sculpted trestle coffee table #3

    This is now the 3rd table of this design with each being different in there own way, this time we lost the center divider to allow one large cubby, to use as a stash for magazines, games and remotes. Standard Dimensions - Length 49'' - Width 30'' - Height 17'' You can have a look in my...
  12. Musical Chair

    So here is my sculpted "Musical Chair". I have really been drawn to the asymmetrical, organic line of Art Nouveau lately and have applied some of what I've learned into a number of recent pieces. This chair is a large studio chair made from ribbon mahogany and tulip poplar. Note that the tulip...
  13. Another Sam Maloof Rocker

    Cherry rocker with Walnut plugs.
  14. Step stool

    I was looking through posted projects today, 1/11/2018, and it seems everyone was posting stools, so I thought I would post one too. I made a pine version of this for a church gift exchange and my wife liked it so I made one for her out of red oak. It is very sturdy and way to heavy, wish I...
  15. Maloof Sculpted Table

    I finally got this thing started and complete. I was initially going to do it last fall but got busy getting some woodworking done for a gallery and then got busy on other projects. This is my first sculpted table and I am pleased with it. It was not too difficult and, as with all projects, I...
  16. Maloof Rocking Chair via Charles Brock's package and Coy Powell's inspiration

    Completed July 2010. Contrasting wood is alder. This is my first MRC, after coaching Coy Powell on his. This is the most challenging piece of furniture I have built. You'd think that a chair that contacts the floor in only two places would be easier to build than one that lands on four. You...
  17. Finally built a workbench!

    I've been seriously woodworking for less than a year and have been using a hinged outfeed table as a workbench. It sucked! I finally found the time to build one the will suit my needs, it's small, at 46"x 26". The top is made from hickory, maple and oak most of which came from trees I cut down...
  18. First Chair -Maloofish

    I've always wanted to build a maloof style rocking chair. I've never built a chair before though, so i decided to build this practice chair from scrap wood (i think it is mahogany). Instead of using screws in the Maloof joint, i used 1/4" dowels. I scooped the seat using Charles Neil's method on...
  19. Walnut and Zebrawood Maloof inspired Hal Taylor rocking chair

    This sculpted rocking chair is built from 2'' Canadian Black Walnut accented with Ebony plugs. This is a medium version ( 5' 7'' - 5' 11'' ). This chair has 2 unique features that make it stand out even next to one of our other rocking chairs. First the leg/headrest design borrows more form...
  20. Sapele & Walnut Live Edge/Slab Coffee Table

    A tribute to some Mid-Century Furniture Masters - Submission for Yin-Yang LJ Awards - This is a project that I sourced wood from 2 different locations in Cincinnati, OH. The first was from a local Sawyer here in town that let me pull through his supply of 10/4 and 8/4 walnut. The other was from...
