Sam Maloof, a Fine Woodworking DVD Profile by Taunton Press, DVD
Taunton Press, long known for their dedication to fine craft in woodworking, filmed this detailed study of Sam’s woodworking techniques in 1985. This video captures Sam and Alfreda in their home and the shop before the move to the current site. In this 55 minute DVD Sam shows many of the specific techniques he uses in his chair construction, including the construction steps of the Maloof chair joint and his not to be copied free-hand band saw technique for carving the sculptural arm of his iconic rocker. This is interspersed with visits to their home and Sam’s thoughts on different pieces he is known for.
