Make a Maloof Hornback Chair
October 28 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm
An event every day that begins at 9:00 am, repeating until October 28, 2022
Probably the single most renowned furniture maker of the 20th century is Sam Maloof. And his hornback chair (sometimes called his Texas chair) is one of his most iconic pieces. In the Make a Maloof Hornback Chair class you’ll build this sculptural beauty.

The five-day class begins with full-scale shop drawings. You’ll then move on to creating the structure of the chair with its sculpted joinery. Making and fitting the spindles and crest are surely a challenge for woodworkers of all levels. The final stage is contouring the seat and making all the lines flow – all with an eye to creating one of the most comfortable wooden chairs you’ve ever sat upon.
