Discovering Sam Maloof

Post date: Feb 24, 2011 4:59:22 PM

When the name Sam Maloof came up twice in one day recently, I realized I didn't know much about him -- I had a vague image of a rocking chair in my mind. A quick Google search later I discovered that not only was Maloof considered one of the greatest woodworkers of all time, but that his house, woodshop and gardens are open for public tours in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, just 35 miles east of where I live and work.
