Charles Rohlfs Oak Desk, Stickley Ellis Table & Iconic Crafts, Nelson Atkins Art Gallery Kansas City

720 days ago by Mark A. DeCou | 23 comments »

Wow! I made it, I finally made it, and oh what a surprise to find a museum with Iconic Furniture pieces intermixed with a lot of European, Asian, Native American, Egyptian, and some strange Contemporary Stuff that someone else calls “art”. ————————- WARNING: If you are easily offended by my silly notions of what looks good and is well built, please don’t read any farther. I’m just giving my opinions, that is what ...

half carved Sandzen panel

2348 days ago by Dan'um Style | 5 comments »

Started this wood panel when we lived in McMinnville, Tennessee. Stopped working on it, about the time the Carrier plant announced they were closing that facility and moving the work to Monterrey, Mexico. My job changed. .... a whole lot of travel. Sort of changed my hobby for a while. It took them 2 years to close that plant. Found this one tonight in the garage, Hadn’t seen it for 5 years, Will make this carving a priority after I get myself a new power carver.

Building a Carved Functional-Art Chair to Match the Tilt Front Desk

2372 days ago by Mark A. DeCou | 16 comments »

I’ve had a fun week. I’m building a chair to match the Tilt Front Desk that I previously posted, and blogged about. If you want to read about the desk, the posting link is given at the bottom of this blog. The desk chair is designed to fit the customer’s kitchen, as the desk is being placed in the kitchen area. She loves to cook, and hopes to move her laptop computer station to the kitchen where she can capture her thoughts on her cooking blog, and do more writing. ...

Airbrushing my Birger Sandzen-Inspired Carving for the Tilt-Front Laptop Computer Desk

2382 days ago by Mark A. DeCou | 16 comments »

I’m in the midst of finishing up a project I have really enjoyed. Sure, it has taken me two times the hours I bid, but I am happy with the result. Actually, it has come out better than I expected, which is always a nice surprise. This is a functional-art piece I wish I wasn’t selling, to be honest. But, I have already spent all of the down payment. So, giving the money back is not possible, so the customer will get her desk. There have been a few pieces I wish I could ha...

Relief Carving My Birger Sandzen-Inspired Desk Door Panel, A step-by-Step Log.

2384 days ago by Mark A. DeCou | 19 comments »

I hesitate to do this, that which I am about to do. I don’t fancy myself as a good carver, or a great picture drawer. Especially with so many lumberjocks that are great carvers here that will see this. On top of that, there are so many great carvers on the internet that will stumble onto this blog because they surf the net. With that said, after Mark Mazzo asked about the process I go through to do a carved panel like this one, I thought about it for awhile, and decided to show th...

Tilt Front Laptop Computer Desk with Carved Front Artwork Inspired by the late-Birger Sandzen

2388 days ago by Mark A. DeCou | 22 comments »

Several have asked about what I am working on now, so I thought I would take a minute and post some progress photos. My current work is a Kitchen Shelving and Desk system in Birch to match the styling of the exisiting cabinets built in the early 1960’s. Seemed like a fairly straight forward project for a past customer, and I like working for them. They “discovered” me, and that “Rates” in my book, regardless of what they want me to do. During the planning...
