My wife completely surprised me, we just had our 28th marriage anniversary and she loaded me up in the car and we drove to my anniversary present, I had no idea where we were going until I drove us up the main street of the Maloof residence and saw the brown colored historical site street sign that clearly stated "Sam Maloof Foundation Historical Site" and I jumped with joy.

We live within an hour of the Maloof residence and I have never been there, it just seems like there is always something more important to do with our money, it just kind of always get set by the side for a future visit.

It was a wonderful tour, although we were not allowed to take pictures of the inside of the residence, I was able to get a few images of the woodshop, the barn full of walnut slabs and rough boards they still use today, and a fun trip through a couple onsite galleries.

When Sam was still with us, we took our twin boys and their grandmother to his shop. Unfortunately, it was closed at the time and we only got to see the outside. I was disappointed. The boys were only 8 and gramma and the wife had no idea of who Sam was or how much he influenced us. 

Ah well, they don't know who Krenov was, either.

Great pictures John, quite the surprise and what a woodshop. So many templates I wonder how he could find the one he was looking for?

I bet he had his own madness way of organizing those templates, or not, but one thing for sure, he knew how to find em!:lol:

What a bummer Gene, the shop being closed, hey if you ever come out this way, let us know, we'll go together and we'll make sure that freakin shop is open for the Howe's!
