Wood Species Identification #1: Hardwood from China - please help me Identify it

06-07-2014 04:33 PM by palaswood | 10 comments »

here is a couple pics of that chinese hardwood I brought back from my trip to beijing last month. I got it for free in a lumber yard from a group of young adults selling cheap construction lumber in bulk. They laughed when I picked it up off the ground and asked how much. To them it was trash wood, but I was beaming as I walked away with my …uh..beam… yeah… But this is like the hardest wood in my shop, harder than the oaks, eucalyptus, hickory, you name it. Even the black...

08-14-2014 01:51 PM by WoodAndShop | 3 comments »

In my above video I share my recent tour of the traditional carpenter & cooper workshop in at Middleton Place, a former plantation near Charleston, South Carolina. Sorry, the video is a little shaky. But fortunately my photos below are not! Ahhh, what could be better than a traditional workshop in a heavenly location like this? (pssst…ignore the aligators) Nobody was manning their workshop station while I poked my head into this workshop, so I just gave myself a tour. I ...

I started this story in yesterdays blog, but I more importain things needed told first. This is a story a man told me on the plane ride home. At this time I had few tools and no shop. I was digging out the basement of my house by hand. Carring two five gallon buckets of dirt up the stairs, then gravel and cement down to pour the floor. I wanted a shop pretty bad. Back on the plane. The fellow next to me was a judge in another area of the VICA competion.(see yesterdays blog) When I told him I ...

"Teller of Life’ as I Now Live Wood" --by RusticWoodArt #7: Wood Scripts From Dark Wood

06-05-2007 02:04 PM by frank | 1 comment »

Wood Scripts From Dark Wood: —-an introduction; a creative writer of the words of woods, i am often enamored by any copy of my species, who would stop and sit awhile, to so share in the bliss of what has been written. Can I tell a story from the hearth of the forest, while the embers of the charcoaled goods are still steaming forth with frosted screeching, as rustic wood spirits sit around the galactic stones, warming their hands to the anticipation of another fire breathed...
