      Maloof Beyond An American Woodworker offers an intimate glimpse into the life and work of Sam Maloof. Now well into his 90’s, Sam is widely considered to be one of today’s finest living craftsmen.   Sam Maloof's sweeping sculptural chairs have become famous throughout the world for their exquisite design and craftsmanship. But his rise to fame was not instant, and his work of over 50 years comprises a broad range of furniture that few have seen.2/5(1).

      “Build A Sculptured Island Stool with Charles Brock” This is the perfect project for a woodworker new to sculptured furniture or a seasoned pro. The Island Stool Bundle includes: One hour fifteen minutes of instructional DVD in HD, teaching the crafting of each of the stool parts; Set of full size paper patterns for each part with dimensions. Today there is a man with this quality of profound artistic vision and talent who has devoted his life to making furniture. His name is Sam Maloof, and this book is his life and work told in his own words. Sam Maloof started making furniture immediately after World War II, when there was very little demand for hand-made objects.

      Sam Maloof, (Samuel Solomon Maloof), American woodworker (born Jan. 24, , Chino, Calif.—died , Alta Loma, Calif.), designed elegant Shaker-influenced wooden furniture that gained him a prominent place in the American post-World War II crafts movement. Among Maloof’s simple handcrafted walnut pieces were cradles, bar stools, hutches, and the one for which he became best.
