Today I was in one of the old buildings in Lodo in Denver, with some probably century-old wood doors. Real, actual panel and frame solid wood doors if you can believe it. As I sat there waiting on my appointment, I wiled away the time puzzling out the elements of the profiles of the moldings on the door raised paneling. Reverse ogee here, ogee there, cove and cockbead there.
When I watch a sitcom on TV my attention will quite often be drawn to the furniture. I am particularly drawn to the sofa table on Two and Half Men with the carved drawer fronts. Copying this may be one of my future projects.
I will watch shows just to see old things in general. I love old homes, tools, furniture and such. My mind can wonder for hours wondering what the house looked like then, what all did that tool help build and what was the man like that used that tool.
Mind my asking which building (name or address)? I have worked in LoDo on several occasions (contractor). Some of those old buildings belong on an historic, or art, register. One of my favorites (of which I cannot remember the name), had a coffee shop. I’d get my cup, slowly sip it, and just hang out to enjoy the atmosphere.
