Sunday's Column - Maloof

Sunday's column is about the Maloof Foundation.  I was fortunate to meet Mr. Maloof a few years back.  He was then 93 and still working as the country's best wood worker.  His creations are wonderful and regarded as works of art - one of his chairs created by his still working team can go for $25,000.

Unfortunately Mr. Maloof died about 15 months after my visit, but his home with many of his creations is open to the public and well worth a visit.  You can read the column in full at
