I don’t do Maloof-style stuff, but I’ve read his book and I’ve done a lot
of different work over the years.

The joinery of the Maloof stuff is not too complex, but there’s a lot of
shaping of parts after glue-up. I would get microplane rasps and if you can
find them, one of the old Nicolson pattern-makers rasps _ I just looked
them up and it looks like they are both easier to find these days and
cheaper than a few years back. The fine rasp, no. 50, gives a cut so
nice you can move to light scraping and a little sanding.
