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

08-04-2007 01:38 AM 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

07-30-2007 08:15 PM 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...

Arts and Crafts Style Pool Table - Video Series #5: Corbels for the leg system

07-26-2007 01:47 PM by John Nixon | 5 comments »

A couple of weeks ago I Blogged for help here at LumberJocks (Link Here) with what size / shape /scale to make the corbels for the Pool Table. It was a great discussion and also a nice collaborative process with all who participated. There’s a great group of woodworkers from all skill levels here, and it was nice to hear to various viewpoints. The corbels are finished, and I think they came out great. The next installment in the video series covers the design and construction of t...

"Dedicated Hummock's That Inspire" --by RusticWoodArt

07-25-2007 02:11 PM by frank | 3 comments »

Dedicated Hummock’s That Inspire ....from where comes this now my way of having a working mode, when before this place i call home, there starts the un-ravel in front of my eye, and so i am lost within the beauty of a moment’s twinkle of ‘wood art’.... —-why even now the tears cascade down my eyes, as i am in-riched by this wonderous panorama that opens up, having no-place to go in this game of hide and seek, i eat bount-i-fully of the feast that has been s...

2nd Update on the Church Hymn Number Board Commission Project

07-24-2007 02:59 AM 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: Also, since I had enough in...

07-20-2007 08:54 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 13 comments »

I have received some correspondence lately asking about what I am doing right now in the shop. So, I thought I would post a little progress on my current commission piece.

Here is a list of the other projects that go with this commission that I have already completed, some have been posted as projects, while others haven...

Another design design for the pool table

07-19-2007 03:29 AM by John Nixon | 7 comments »

I’m back for some more design advice. The discussion / feedback on the corbels was great, and I thank all who participated. Next topic for design consideration is the addition of a stretcher between the legs on the pool table. Some things that are up in the air: Whether to add a stretcher or not. The legs are stout enough that I don’t need it for stability, so it’s purely asthetic. If a stretch is added, should I do a through tenon look where the stretcher comes ...
