I just finished a set of 4 Sam Maloof inspired low back chairs. I made these chairs with Black cherry, and finished them with 5 coats of Sam Maloof finish. The project took about 275 hours to complete. Shaping was done by band saw, spoke shave, power grinder and finally rasps and sanding.
Thanks for looking

How do you know how to carve the seat? I would love to do something similar but I don’t know what thr shape of the seat should be. I would appreciate some tips.

Looking through your projects. This caught my eye. Very nice craftsmanship. Ever see any of John Mackpieces chairs?
