Walnut Settee-Maloof style-Here is a picture of a just completed walnut sette. Of course inspired by Sam Maloof. The seats are carved and the arms and backrest are handshaped. The single chairs like this are our most popular chair.

Impressive work! Just the symmetry in the seat is amazing let alone the lines. Very nice!

Nice homage to Maloof. I have never seen the twin rider before what a neat concept, how much weight do you think it could hold? jockmike

This would seem to classify as a work of art. Such an elegant design, nice shape and color.

Scott, another GREAT piece. I don’t know which of your skills is better – your crafsmanship or your photography, both are amazing.
