Urban Groove

Dave Marcoullier is a nature-loving guy - he's a landscaper and a certified arborist. But he also happens to live in the heart of San Francisco's Mission District, and he has discovered how to combine his loves of nature and city life in these extraordinary wooden skyline panels.

Each panel captures an iconic skyline in deeply hued, solid walnut. Marcoullier drafts the designs on computer, and mills the image into the wood with a router. Finally he sands and finishes each one by hand. The areas representing the city retain the unaltered color of the wood, while the darker areas of the sky overhead are achieved with a natural teak oil stain. A hole is bored in the back for simple mounting. Handcrafted from sustainably harvested wood in San Francisco, CA.

Dave Marcoullier finds inspiration in architect Daniel Burnham's advice: “Make no little plans. They have no magic to stir men’s blood.” A certified arborist and landscape designer, much of his work is an extension of these two disciplines. In his CNC routed, solid hardwood wall hangings and cheese boards, he derives color variations and contrast by treating some areas with natural oil, while leaving other areas of wood untouched. As no two wood grains are the same, each and every piece is unique. Dave takes pride in selecting only the finest grains, and orienting color, direction, and striation to best compliment the context of the design.

Comments about UncommonGoods City Skyline Wooden Routing:

This was just the type of gift I was looking for for my husband for our 5 year wedding anniversary (& our 10th year living in Chicago). He has everything and shopping for him is near impossible. I would have liked a write up about the artist. He did sign it, however, which is cool. I'll probably print off the info about him that is on the UG website and put it with the gift.

      My brother is most difficult to buy for. This gift was an original reminder of his time in the Bay area. Even his wife loved it and allowed him to hang it in their home!

      Comments about UncommonGoods City Skyline Wooden Routing:

      My husband's favorite city is Chicago; we own a condo there and go about twice a month. I bought this as a gift for him to set on his desk at work. I knew the measurements before I bought it, so I knew it was a small piece of artwork. I think it would've been more attractive if it was a little bigger, but I love the design.

          This was a gift to a homesick New Yorker. The joy in his eyes as he realized what he was holding was worth far more than I paid. Gave him a little piece of NYC south of the Mason-Dixon!!!!!

            Looks just like the picture, but much smaller than I expected (I should have paid closer attention to the dimensions). Makes a nice accent to a room's decor, but certainly not a centerpiece of any kind. Also, did not come with info about the artist, or even a box (just a plastic wrap). Not good for gift giving at all!
