Here is the finished (as a blog) stool
Once it came out of the clamps all the joints looked OK so it underwent 3 hours of sculpting and preliminary 80 Grit sanding.
Followed by a good blast down with compressed air and an through examination of the joints was conducted.
There are some gaps in the joints, knots and areas of the back rest needing filling so that will happen along with final series of finish sanding, a protective coat applied, and then posted as a project, so that ends the blog series on the Maloof Stool.
The raw pictures:
Now for some close ups of the joints as that is what the design is all about
So are they real Sam Maloof Joints ?
No they are not!
The real mcCoys are three dimensional meaning there are three exposures of timber on the real joints
The front, the rear, and the side.
But I worked with the timber I had available.
Was it fun to make ? yes it was, a do again? possibly if my arm was twisted.
