California's Fathers of Woodworking

San Francisco Chronicle: 10.22.08

Today's Chronicle covers two of California's most famous woodworkers and furniture makers, Sam Maloof and James Krenov. Hailing from a time before big box stores, when furniture was hand-crafted and made to last, these two living legends continue to create some of the most beautiful furniture we've ever seen.

We would give our left arm to own one of Maloof's rocking chairs, or Krenov's cabinets. These two are the real deal, and we're happy to see them being exposed to a wider audience.
