I love it. I have tremendous respect for you guys that do the sculptural furniture, I know how much work it is.

I’m not sure what Maloof’s inspiration was, but this table reminds me of a tree with exposed roots. The table appears “rooted” in the floor.

Great job. I don’t think I’m trying that anytime soon ;)

Very nice. Makes me want to try to build one, but I’ve no place to put it.
Must get tax season and backlog done with so I can start building things for assorted worthy causes’s silent auctions.

If you guys ever get a chance to watch the Maloof video Phil referred to, you will see that his wife made the exact same comment about the legs looking like the roots of a tree.

Phil – I like it! It would be th perfect piece to accompany a sculptured rocker in the Maloof style. Have you built any other Maloof style sculptured projects?

Yeah, that Root comparison was quoted by his wife in an article as well… He didn’t seem to be aware of it until she pointed it out. Just that intune with his organic sense of design I suppose.
