Inspired?,yes. Reproduction?, no. This chair was entirely hand shaped, even the seat. Spokeshave, Scorp, card scrapers, patience and music. I rounded ends of stretchers to expose dowels and added some hard maple accents.

Verrrry nice. A great feature of the Maloof designs is that to make one really forces you into true handwork because our typical shop machines just can’t go there. Excellent execution!
