City Life

Dave Marcoullier is a nature-loving guy--he's a landscaper and a certified arborist. 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 his extraordinary wooden skyline panels.

Each panel captures a select cityscape in dark hued, solid walnut. Marcoullier drafts the designs digitally then mills each city's iconic skyline into the wood with a router. Finally, he sands and stains each piece 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 wash of natural teak oil stain. A hole is pierced in the back of each panel for easy mounting. Handcrafted from sustainably harvested wood in San Francisco, California. Click here to see all available city skylines.

Dave Marcoullier

Dave Marcoullier is a certified arborist and landscape designer living in San Francisco's Mission District, and much of his work is an extension of these two disciplines. His work is comprised of 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 WOOD SKYLINE ROUTING - LARGE:

    I bought the Cleveland skyline for my brother for his birthday. He loved it! I was worried, based on some of the examples online that it might come looking dull or boring, but it was a bright and beautiful piece of wood, with a perfect skyline silhouette. I bought the large one and only wish that it were slightly larger. Overall, however, it's a beautiful piece that made for a very well-recieved gift.

      Comments about WOOD SKYLINE ROUTING - LARGE:

      The wood skylines are displayed in my boyfriend and I's first apartment together. Though it may seem obvious from my purchase, I am from San Jose and he is from Anchorage, and we both found our way to Newport Beach together. He makes great money, so I didn't want to buy him another watch or shoes (something that he can-and does buy himself all the time), but something more meaningful for Christmas. I stumbled upon uncommongoods.com and when I came across the wooden skylines, I knew they were perfect. Thank you for the amazing find!
      Things that are great: The wood skylines were just as they were described online. When I opened the package, they were both just as perfect as I expected them to be.
      Things that weren't so great: The smell? They had a harsh finish smell to them, but I wouldn't consider that a deal-breaker. The smell faded within a day or so, and if anything, goes to show that these products were well taken care of.

      Service and delivery comments:

      The panels came perfectly unharmed and exactly when they said they were going to arrive.

        Comments about WOOD SKYLINE ROUTING - LARGE:

        My dad grew up in Baltimore and has some older posters of the skyline; he loved how he could pick out the specific skyscrapers of his home city! It was beautifully constructed and the wood was contrasted between city and sky, showing the grains wonderfully.

        Service and delivery comments:

        I was worried at first, because it was handcrafted, and the shipping info said it may take two weeks. It was ordered on the 13th, and arrived before the 20th, which worked out perfectly for Christmas. Customer service was extremely helpful in resolving billing issues I had mistakenly made!

        Comments about WOOD SKYLINE ROUTING - LARGE:

        My boyfriend went to school in Philadelphia and misses the city a lot. I bought him the large skyline after reading reviews that the small skyline was a bit too small for hanging up. In all honesty, I wish there was a third even larger option or that this was a bit larger, but it shows nice detail and will work fine hanging on the wall. I haven't been to philly, so I can't say if the skyline is accurate, but my boyfriend could tell what it was. Overall, I'm happy with this purchase and he was excited and surprised to receive the unique piece!

        Service and delivery comments:

        This wasn't supposed to ship until Dec 23 and arrived even earlier than that - great surprise!

          Simple but high quality. The wood grain is beautifully highlighted in this piece, and the slab of wood used is a thick, heavy slab. I ordered the Austin landscape and gave it to my husband as a Christmas gift. He loved it and was immediately looking for that perfect place to display it in our home. Highly recommend!

          Service and delivery comments:

          There was a small snafu with shipping. The tracking number provided contained a typo and so I was unable to track the package. This was a Christmas present that arrived at the last moment, and I was afraid it wouldn't make it in time. Thankfully it did!

          I contacted customer service for help. They were unable to provide me the correct tracking number at the time. However I received a follow up email later in the day confirming that the package had arrived, which indeed it had a few hours earlier. I don't always expect companies to get it right, but when they don't, I expect them to fix it. Uncommon Goods did just that, and I was very happy with the service in the end.

          Also really liked having the option to chat with support! I hate being on the phone!

            I ordered two skylines ; London and Chicago. Chicago is excellent. London is not quite as good. My husband loves them. They are pretty small so don't plan on filling any big spaces with it.

                  Comments about WOOD SKYLINE ROUTING - LARGE:

                  I really like the aesthetic design of the piece, and I think staining half of the design for contrast is nice. I think it would look great if the whole piece was also sealed with an oil or wax, so the unstained portion isn't naked. I think the piece would also look more intricate, special and handmade if the routing bit was smaller. Overall, though, I am quite happy with it. It is a unique piece of art and the kind of thing I was hoping to find for our "wooden" 5th anniversary. I also like that I was able to purchase art from a local artist.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Item arrived 5 days after I ordered it - great timing.

                  I took a gamble and purchased the Salt Lake City skyline, which was not pictured. I figured since I loved all the other sky lines that he did, I was willing to take a chance. After receiving the product it is clear that whomever made this has never been to Salt Lake City. Granted, SLC doesn't have a ton of defining buildings, the skyline I received is entirely indistinguishable from any other skyline. Also, the two distinguishing colors are simply stained and unstained, I don't know why but that made it feel very unfinished. Overall I'm going to keep it because it was a gift for my boyfriend who loves wooden things, skylines, and SLC and he said he loves it. However, I have a sneaking suspicion he is being overly nice because he doesn't want to hurt my feelings. Overall the other cities he's done are gorgeous, I would just be careful to buy a skyline for an easily distinguishable city.
