as always, kudos to sam maloof. these were made together and the woman client intended to pick one of them. she ended up taking them both. if it wasn’t for sam, i doubt i’d be doing this. paz

How did you achieve such a nice finish? Scrapping or sanding?

The style and lines of these chairs are outstanding, easy to understand why your client took both. To me, the chairs have a nice flow and feel of warmth.

Beautiful chairs. I looked at your others and you certainly have a knack for building a nice chair. Really, really nice. I bet if you had four she would have bought them.

Scott – Outstanding. Checked out your previous projects and was similarly impressed. Sam is inspirational. Just finished his autobiography. Waiting for a couple of rasps to arrive to finish a low back. Very fun, very exciting. Thanks for sharing.
