Just found out that one of the greatest woodworkers has passed away. After reading about Sam Maloof in a book that was about 2 inches thick I found that this pioneer was truly a genius. He taught many to think outside of the box when it comes to wood working. Also he and his wife Freda spent a lot of time in “third” world countries teach these skills to those who didn’t even know what saws where. Sad note to pass along to you all.
