Here are a pair of custom wooden Maloof style bar stools we have recently adapted from our Contemporary Bar Stool we build. We basically removed the arms, but it’s all in the details which needed to be adjusted for style and strength. We have cut the top of the front legs off and sanded them smooth to the seat, the front Maloof joint was built using a notch that is 1.25’’ deep to allow the leg to be flush with the side of the seat which is incredibly strong and now became even more part of the style of this custom wooden stool design.

We adjusted the curve on the back rest both top, bottom and side to side.

As usual you can visit my custom wooden rocking chair and table website for more detail pictures

Thanks for having a look

Another nice one Paul. I like how the front leg joint turned out, been actually thinking about a Maloof joint being cut flush like this would look/work.

These are wonderful bar stools and I think that you will do well with them.

Paul,

Great job on the adaptation… seems to both look wonderful, and undoubtedly function beautifully.

Nice! Ill be curious to see what other renditions come out of your shop this year.

Thanks as always guys, love sharing our pieces…... My next brain storm for this design has the word swivel in it, back to the drawing board, well back to the drawing piece of mdf. (-:
