Hi,This is my first attempt at Blogging. I’ve been planning on building a fireplace mantel for quite a few years now. So late this fall I started on this project. The cold weather got an early start this year , so I couldn’t finish it, so I brought it to town to work on it this winter.My sweetheart has been snapping pics. of my progress. They turned out pretty good, so I’d like to share some with you. The shelf is made of 3/4” Birch plywood, with a Black Ash fascia...

Church Altar Restoration and Matching Side Altars Project Bid Submitted 11-10-2006

11-13-2006 03:33 AM by Mark A. DeCou | 1 comment »

New Bid SubmittedThis morning I sent out my bid for a commissioned job to build two side altars for a church, matching the old original center altar. After spending so much time estimating and pondering if I left anything out, or put too much in the bid, I am glad I have finally made the decision, typed it up, and sent it out. This project will involve some pretty complicated woodworking, the type of challenge that I like. The church board will review the bids this weekend, and I should kn...

I have been wanting to make some walking sticks out of saplings, and I have watched a small group of trees on my property grow all summer, waiting until the lea...

creche #1: Awaiting a manger

I was commissioned to build a creche for one of my Dad’s customers (Well, Dad was commissioned, but I’m “subcontracting” At any rate I’m getting paid to do woodworking, and not resorting to family to supply the cash!) Before meeting my client, I whipped up a bunch of rough sketches for something simple and rustic. Meanwhile (and unbeknownst to me), he headed on down to one of the big box stores to tell them about his project, and get a materials list. Fortunately one of my designs jived wi...
