  2. Maloof Inspired Rocking Chair

    I have another Grandchild due November 6th 2014 and wanted to make something special for him/her and Mother to share and maybe to eventually be passed down as he/she grows older. Several years ago I attended a Maloof Rocker Seminar and had the opportunity to sit in an original Maloof Rocker...
  3. Shop stool V2

    So here's my 2nd attempt at a stool, I made the first out of hickory a week ago. This one is walnut and cherry, I'm saving to rest of my 8/4 walnut for two stools for the kitchen. I didn't have enough walnut for the seat so I threw some cherry in there and also used cherry on the legs I'm almost...
  4. Armless bar stools

    Here are a pair of custom wooden Maloof style bar stools we have recently adapted from our Contemporary Bar Stool we build. We basically removed the arms, but it's all in the details which needed to be adjusted for style and strength. We have cut the top of the front legs off and sanded them...
  5. Maloof inspired kitchen stools

    I've been woodworking almost a year now and ran across a Sam Maloof video on YouTube and was fascinated by the man and his work. We needed (wanted) two new stools in our kitchen. I've done two versions so far until I settled on this design. I wanted a flowing design so the legs have a nice arch...
  6. This is probably my only shot at a "daily top 15" status at LJ - come on you all!!

    Have been making two of these. Its really quite fast; it took me only about 1,5 years… (more due to other engagements as a father of two etc. than just the complexity of the project). Finally the first one is completely finished. The second one is behind by one day of sanding & the 4-5 coats of...
  7. Stool Samples

    Inspired by the works of Sam Maloof. I have been wanting to design and build something like this since I first was exposed to this style of building. Luckily an opportunity presented its self when I was commissioned to design 4 kitchen island stools. Constructed out of Ash and dyed black...

  11. Maloof Inspired Rocking Chairs #3 & #4

    These two chairs were made for a retired Air Force Lt. Col. and wife. Both chairs are made with quarter-sawn oak and walnut. I like the way the flakes in the quarter-sawn oak turned out.
  12. Maloof style rocker inspired by Bill Kappel

    This is my first project I have posted on here. I am relatively new to this site and have been working on this rocker for some time now. I am a PhD student, so I have only been able to dedicate 1 day/weekend to working on this chair. I made two Maloof style rockers in 2012 for my sister and...
  13. Walnut cushioned rocking chair

    I designed this Maloof inspired rocking chair creating my own templates as needed. It is made of walnut and has some maple highlights and sports a sapphire leather cushioned seat. On this one I decided that I wanted to make one with a cushioned seat. The seat frame started as a 3 inch wide...

    Here's a rocker I just completed using Scott Morrison's plans. Scott, primarily known for his Maloof inspired rocker, also has plans for this guy. My goal is to eventually build a Maloof rocker but wanted to first gain some confidence by completing this. I will speak very highly of his plans and...

  18. Maloof inspired Sculpted Table

    Watching Sam Maloof's documentry even before YouTube days planted the seeds of woodworking. It took many years before the seeds were watered to germinate. The man is an inspiration. Goal is to build a Maloof inspired Rocking chair and I thought this Sculpted table would be a good start. The...
  19. Scrap Wood Foot Stools

    This is a departure from my usual work; and is intended more as an exercise in utilizing shop-scraps. Perhaps the most expensive foot stools ever made. I recently upgraded my shop's main equipment, and needed a non-commission focus for the get-acquainted period with my new equipment - I...
