Sam Maloof has also written a book that is very popular with woodworkers. Click below to find out more.
There is a few things that I think make Maloof great: he clearly loves doing woodwork, he takes his time and does every project right and his projects have a distinctive style. You frequently find that a famous artisan has a style that is connected to a specific brand.
Maloof really is an artist with work displayed in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Both presidents Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter owned Maloof rockers.
