Default Sam Maloof, question

I really like the Maloof's work, I made ​​several of their rocking chairs. I am interested in models in which the seat is not solid wood seats tapizados.El problem is that not what type of board that used to unite hind legs to the frame or bastidor.Se it's not like I do, I have seen and read but can not find anything, here are some pictures that I think explain it better, thanks.Me gusta mucho el trabajo de Maloof,he fabricado varias de sus mecedoras .Estoy interesado en los modelos en los que el asiento no es de madera maciza,asientos tapizados.El problema es que no se cual es el tipo de junta que utilizaba para unir las patas traseras al marco o bastidor.Se que no es como yo lo hago,he mirado y leido pero no encuentro nada,estas son unas fotos que creo que lo explican mejor,gracias.

Ramon,


Mirando las fotos que enviaste al parecer el tipo de junta que utilizaste esta bien. Por favor si puedes aclarar tu pregunta quiza yo pueda ayudar. Yo he construido tres sillas, una tapizada y dos de madera solida.

Regards,

Brian

In so many words "I may be able to help you out but am not understanding what your question is.
The pictures you sent look like you already have the leg to frame joined fine. Please clarify. I have made 3 chairs of the same design, 1 with an upholstered seat and 2 with solid seats "

Azmetro Hello, thanks for responder.Las translations are a nuisance but I have understood you quite well, the fault is mine not to mention po ingles.Mi problem is the union of the hind legs with the seat, I seems it does not use this type Maloof Joining in their chairs, I do tapizadas.La union that is strong and secure but I think it is not, in the photos are not seen caps that hide the tornillos.El book I have of Sam Maloof does not clear my doubts and are some crokis your photos and what makes me think it is not know how to stay asi.No this when using the translator, I hope you understand me, thanks anyway.Hola azmetro,gracias por responder.Las traducciones son un fastidio aunque yo te he comprendido bastante bien,la culpa es mia po no hablar ingles.Mi problema es la union de las patas traseras con el asiento,me parace que Maloof no utilizaba esta tipo de union en sus sillas tapizadas.La union que yo hago queda fuerte y segura pero creo que no es asi,en las fotos no se aprecian los tapones que ocultan los tornillos.El libro que tengo de Sam Maloof no despeja mis dudas y son algunas de sus fotos y crokis lo que me hace pensar que no es asi.No se como quedara esto cuando utilice el traductor,espero que me comprendas,de todas formas gracias.

Ramon,
I do not know the answer to your question, but that has never stopped me before. My guess would be that Mr. Maloof used a very simple rabbet or cleat structure like yours. His was a production shop and I doubt that he would spend much time on something that was not visible.

No sé la respuesta a su pregunta, pero que nunca me ha detenido antes. Mi conjetura sería que el Sr. Maloof utiliza un rebaje muy sencillo sistema de fijación o estructura como la suya. El suyo fue un taller de producción y dudo que iba a pasar mucho tiempo en algo que no era visible.

You have the joint exactly right, Ramon. Maloof cut his with routers - it's a very quick joint.

I have used that joint on many tables and chairs. Here's a link to how I made it:

Thanks, Brian, for showing us how the upholstered seat fits into the chair. Do you attach it with screws or something, or is it stable just sitting in the chair?

Which do you feel is more comfortable, the solid wood seat or the upholstered one?

Thanks,
Jesse

Gracias, Brian, para que nos muestra cómo el asiento tapizado se adapta a la silla. ¿Es usted conecte con los tornillos o algo así, o es estable, sentado en la silla? ¿Cuál crees que es más cómodo, el asiento de madera sólida o el tapizado? Gracias, Jesse

Jesse,

I made a template for the upholsterer and have about 1/16th of an inch space between the template and the routed out portion of the seat. With the fabric/cushion this creates a press fit and does not need screws. That being said I do have 4 holes drilled in to the seat frame to allow screw use if needed.

As far as comfort goes, I have made 2 of these chairs more in line with what Mr. Maloof would do and must say that the solid wood seat is much more comfortable than the upholstered seat. The upholstered seat was my first foray into making these chairs and at the time I was a bit intimidated by the scooping of the seats(which turns out is easier than I thought using Charles Neils approach). I hope this helps.

I have included pictures of my latest chair using the solid seat design.

Regards,

Brian




Hice un patron para la silla tapizada y tengo 1/16 de pulgada entre el patron y la porcion delimitadora del asiento. Con el tapiz/cojin se crea un efecto de presion/ajuste y no necesita tornillos. Apesar de esto, tengo 4 oyos perforados en el marco del asiento para los tornillos en el caso de que sean necesarios. En cuanto a comodidad , he construido 2 sillas en linea con lo que el señor Maloof haría, y en mi opinion, el asiento de Madera solida es mucho más cómodo que el asiento tapizado. He incluído fotos de la última silla que he construído usando el diseño del asiento de Madera sólida.

Saludos

Brian
