Sam Maloof is one of the fathers of contemporary woodworking. Now in this DVD profile of a master craftsman, you can see Maloof at work and home, and see how his furniture embodies his ideas on craft, design, and technique.
This visually rich documentary spans a week with Maloof while he builds and discusses his designs, including his much imitated signature rocker. It's an opportunity to savor the nuances and substance that make Sam Maloof an inspiration to woodworkers everywhere. You'll also see how to:
- Sculpt joints with a router and rasp
- Create laminated rockers
- Use decorative splines for strength
"Sam Maloof is a gifted and generous teacher. By spending time with Sam and watching him work, one cant help but benefit from his experience." Peter Korn, Center for Furniture Craftsmanship
