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.

Although the gift is unique, I felt like a couple of improvements could be made with the quality. I noticed almost immediately that there were impressions of what looked like other buildings above the routed part of the skyline. I think that it came from where other routings had laid on top of it or from some residual memory issue that the machine used for the routing left imprinted in the wood. I also noticed some small bits of wood in the grooves of the buildings and felt liked this should have been removed prior to sending the item to the customer.

I will say that the item is quite unique and still seems to be of high quality. But, there were these couple of issues that if handled would have made the item worth the price that I paid for the skyline routing.

I ordered the London skyline for my mother. They shipped San Francisco. Four times!!!!! I immediately notified them that the barcode sticker was wrong and suggested they check their stock. The customer service folks were quite nice and quickly shipped the 2nd and 3rd replacement (both SF). I called to get a refund and they persuaded me to give them a fourth chance. The last one took three weeks and is still SF. They say they have refunded the purchase price to my Paypal account...we shall see. Again, they were very nice and apologetic, just could not get the order right. The quality of the product was nice, was a bit smaller than expected but would have been quite happy...if it was London.

              Comments about UncommonGoods City Skyline Wooden Routing:

              I bought this for Christmas present for a good artist friend of mine who already has her walls filled with art work of different mediums, so the small size was perfect. I was very surprised with the quality thickness of the product and gave it this aesthetic boldness. I want to actually buy one for my home. The art itself is simple, but not amateur woodwork. It can be hard to distinguish the (SF) city strewn on the walnut if you're not from SF. The keyholes in the back are just amazing for easy installation. The only reason i gave it a 4 out 5 is that I wish there was a bigger sized option.

                  My cousin is from Nebraska. She always loved New York since a very early age (1989). She moved there after college. She was recently proposed to in her favorite spot in NY, the SKY LINE. Can this be engraved with their name and wedding date? If so, what would the cost be?
