« Part 11: Triplets! Part 12 of The Maloof Library Series series Part 13: A Maloof Inspired Dining Chair »

Hi everyone,

Here’s a Maloof Inspired Shoe Bench built a while back, but the templates and instruction booklet are now available. This one was built from Bubinga, which made it a bit heavier than normal, but will probably outlast my grandkids.

Quite a fun little project, especially my favorite part….the handles.

Very NICE!

I don’t remember seeing one of those when taking his tour…

Looks like Maloof… and those handles are Super COOL too!

Thank you.

I love your shoe bench. I’ve got too much to do, to make one, but I’ll but your bench on my favorites list for a future project.

The handles are fabulous! Well, the whole bench is, but the handles are especially memorable.

Very pleasant bench. The picture from your web page inspired me to make one.
All your works are fabulous.
