ORTHODOX CANONICAL ITEMS #1: WOOD CARVED ORTHODOX CROSS

470 days ago by Walther von Einik | 4 comments »

The cross was made like rare Orthodox canons, which were supported by Christian Church untill it’s separate. Here is the link on Youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=na5JYljDRCE&feature=youtu.be Old testament, Byzantine, Greek and Slavonic styles were in project development, and it’s shows the indivisibility of the Christian Church, also, emphasizes the Evangelic truth about the indivisibility of Christ. The cross was made from basswood, because, on the one hand ...

Church pews project #2: ready for stripping

600 days ago by inchanga | 4 comments »

The pews have now been broken down ready to be taken to the stripping facility. Theoretically the chemicals should enhance the natural appearance of the wood but i have everything crossed just in case things don’t turn out quite as expected. I will know by the end of next week just how much usable timber I have.

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

849 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 ...

Desk backboard, cubicle conversation piece

2080 days ago by rockb | 2 comments »

This simple project was prompted by a forum topic, What do you do for a living? The topic was interesting to me because of the diversity of the folks, jobs, specialties of many of you. I guess with 6000 plus people on LJ’s, there’s gonna be quite a cross section of life. One thing that we all do have in common is our love of wood and what can be created with it. Seems that after we make something, we like to share with others. Problem is, after we share with our wife/mo...

Internet Business, and A Visit from Father Hein, Who was Checking Progress on His Commissioned Work

2117 days ago by Mark A. DeCou | 9 comments »

Dealing with Internet Business:I haven’t had much time to blog this year. Blogging is fine, I like it, but honestly, who has time to read my dribble? I get enough encouragement to continue blogging that I make time for it when I can, but it has been awhile. Ever since Google started to find my lumberjocks postings in the Spring of this year, I’ve been pretty busy. Google had always fround my postings, and my website but the ratings were apparently so low on their list that...

Sharing Photos of a "Great Celebration" Mass Service; From the Church Furniture Commission Project

2482 days ago by Mark A. DeCou | 20 comments »

For several months during 2007, I had the privilege of building several pieces of commissioned furniture for the St. Anthony of Padua Roman Catholic Church in Strong City, KS. This church is part of the Wichita, KS Diocese. I finished up all of my work this summer, and have blogged, and added those projects as postings before. At the end of this blog, I will give a summary list of the items if you are interested in seeing the pieces I built. Also, I wanted to share the photos of the Sep...

Ms Debbie P's 2007 Shop Tour and Inspection #8: Tuesdays With Mark Decou

2556 days ago by Douglas Bordner | 14 comments »

This week’s visit is to the shop of Mark Decou in the scenic Flint Hills of Kansas. I grew up in Kansas, and fished and hunted on “the old home place” not far from Mark’s neck of the woods. Big sky, broad vistas, rolling prairie hills with flint and limestone outcrops, farmsteads with Osage Orange hedgerows and babbling creeks. Plenty of serene space to contemplate the meaning of one’s existence. And contemplative is a natural adjective for Mark. He has done m...

4th (Final) Update on the St. Anthony Hymn Number Board

2581 days ago by Mark A. DeCou | 10 comments »

This week, I’ve been finishing up the Hymn Number Board for the St. Anthony Catholic church in Strong City, KS. Final assembly, glue, number plate holders, stain, finish, and gold-powder painting, and it is all finished now, ready for delivery to the church on Saturday. This is my Original Design, and it looks nothing like anything I have seen before, although it has design elements of things I have built in the past. I built it to match the other furnishings of the St. Anthony chu...

3rd Update on the Hymn Number Stand

2585 days ago by Mark A. DeCou | 9 comments »

I had a nice weekend. Saturday I worked with a local cabinet maker helping him catch up on his schedule. We are nearly finished with the 3rd kitchen cabinet job, and then he will be caught up. I think I have worked about 8-9 days this summer with him on Saturdays. Sunday was relaxing, went to church and then home with the family, and a nap. A nap makes a lot of things better for some reason (not to take anything away from church). Today, Monday, I have the Hymn Number Board just abo...

2nd Update on the Church Hymn Number Board Commission Project

2591 days ago by Mark A. DeCou | 11 comments »

Today, Monday, I took photos of what I have accomplished on my Hymn Number Board that I am building for the St. Anthony Church in Strong City, KS. On one hand, it seems like I made a lot of progress since my last blog late last week, but when I look back over the photos tonight, I can see that the number of hours it takes me to do this tedious work is mounting. I started the project with the previous blog: http://lumberjocks.com/jocks/decoustudio/blog/1508 Also, since I had enough in...
