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.

Holy Mackeral! That is stunningly beautiful. No professional photography, or epic background needed. This one is magnificent.

When you sit in it do you feel aloof? Beautiful workmanship.

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!
