Today I’m working on a solid walnut coffee table, cafe table, low back chair and rocking chair all built in the maloof style of joinery and sculpting.

I’m walking through my shop located in Acton, Ontario, Canada, describing what i’m working on, my pieces are built in the maloof style so lot’s of sculpting and sanding (-:

Very strong dowel and tongue and groove joints.

Thanks for having a look!

Thanks for sharing your shop. I’ve often wondered how a sculpted chair would be packed for shipping. Your pieces look fantastic too.

Very nice shop and very good work. I enjoyed the video except for the very distracting music.
