This is my try at Sam Maloof’s “Evans” Chair. I really like this chair; it is by far my favorite to set in. It fits my behind very well; I guess that makes sense considering it’s the same behind I used to test the chair while shaping it.

I don’t know what to say, Dayton. This is up to your usual standard.

Mr Maloof would be proud! Or afraid of the competition, I don’t know.

Nice work!

He would defiantly not be afraid : ) he’ll be 92 in January and currently is backed up for more than 7 years.
Thank you for the great compliment though.

Nice Job ….So how long did it take you to make it ? Did you just make it from pictures ? or did you find a plan someplace ?

Thanks for posting …..yes what a nice looking chair ..

Nicely done. Your curves and joinery are flowing together nicely. This really makes me want to make some furniture. I need some dining room chairs that don’t have upholstery on the back, as one of my cats loves to do the toenail thing on them.
