08-14-2014 01:16 PM by Gary Rogowski | 3 comments »

I got involved building chairs with the Lumber to Legacy project in Albany, OR. Here’s the story in their local paper. Lumber to Legacy Some high schools kids helped us build this cafe chair design. I wrote to the paper explaining my involvement. “I wanted to respond further as to why I did this class for the kids. I love to teach and this was another opportunity to be with a group that doesn’t get the attention they deserve. Education in the applied arts is mostly for...

I’ve been debating for a while now,,,,,what kind of feet should this crib have? I’m running our of time so something simple, yet goes with the rest of the design. Needs to be fast to make, since time is running out. Ah Ha! I have it! Here’s Grandpa back in the shop hard at work at the lathe…....

3rd Update on the Hymn Number Stand

07-30-2007 08:15 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 9 comments »

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...

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...
