Artist Larry White was Sam Maloof’s first full-time woodworker employee, hired as a college student at the age of 19. Today, more than half a century later, Larry is an accomplished master artist and sculptor, who brings his personal story and expertise to this fantastic workshop.

 

During 21 hours of intensive instruction over three days, Larry will share his skills and insights across a full spectrum of woodworking tools and techniques. Students will be introduced to design, pattern-making, and selection of wood. Larry then guides the process step-by-step as you learn to saw, shape, join, clamp, glue and finish.  The course covers basic set-up, safe use and calibration of the table saw, band saw, jointer/planer, router, rasp, sanders and a range of essential hand tools, materials and finishing products.

 

This course is modeled after our extraordinary Maloof Veterans Workshop, launched in 2013, and available previously only to men and women veterans of the US military.  Now open to participants over 18 years of age with little or no previous woodworking experience, this course is a great way to jumpstart a new woodworking passion, renew and refresh existing skills, or find new inspiration for your next stage of exploration.  

 

 

New Fall Workshops

The "Butterfly" Table has a slightly challenging "x" based frame and features a 3/8 x 16" diameter tempered glass top.

The second offering is the Random X side table with a similar base but has a 13" x 13" square  wood top and Ziricote plugs.

Sapele, a dense reddish brown African Mahogany wood is the wood of choice for the Fall workshops.  It is a highly figured hardwood that machines and finishes beautifully, complimenting the design of these two new projects.
