Elysian Wood Nuts Well as I am sitting here writing this, I am looking outside to our first snowfall of the season and although this one doesn’t amount to much and will soon be gone, I am giving thanks. Thanks that all my elysian wood nuts’ are in and stored up for our three wood stoves. We have a wood stove in the kitchen, sunroom/sitting room and then in our living room there is the one I call, ‘the beast’, who sits only to consume food in his belly. For all hi...

Rustic Ramblings

12-08-2006 01:04 AM by dennis mitchell | 4 comments »

I’ve been playing with electricity again. This year I bought a halogen double light with the stand for use on construction lights. Well it quit on me. I changed the bulbs..bypassed the cord and the switches..cussed…still isn’t working. Ten weeks ago I ordered a fan and set of lights for my house they look great. Four pendant lights to match the fan were all to long so I had to shorten them…anyway after cutting every thing down with my hacksaw and some creative use of a...

“Follow the grain in your own wood.” - Howard Thurman Ingrained Beauty Comes Of Age ....chaotic wood madness in a sculptured poem of poetic utterance, becomes the well oiled beauty of wood gladness. ....i am the flower of my own design as i give myself to be,and so i will pass this day declaring alimentariness. ....elementary my dear alimentary as the wood sucked the oil,i am feeling quite blessed by our integrity of connaturalness. ....and so the call sounded out a...

Woods of My Heart ....the stories I write are etched in wood and formed from within, as out of my heart….

Dust Hood 12/06/2006

12-06-2006 01:29 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 0 comments »

I finally did some wood-turning yesterday, & my dust shield worked great. It can be slid to follow along with the area your working when doing a longer turning. I was concerned that the plastic window on it would get dirty because of static, but it stayed clear of dust. It also didn’t interfere with my work.My sweetheart was setting up her display of Dickens carolers yesterday, & mentioned she should have a light post. I surprised her, & made one for her. I’ll show it...

Love of Wood ....and there was I, as where was I and what would I be, if it were not for wood…. There are those times when out walking in the woods, that I need to soar and so, as often what happens is, I will curl up at the base of an old pine tree, while releasing my imagination to take to flight. It is in these my moments of now, that by losing sight of where my feet have stood, I am lofted to the heights of an old pine tree, where I can give thanks for the largeness of a bigge...

WHAT'S UP? "While I'm out in my Shop". #7: Things to do 12/04/2006

12-04-2006 05:58 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 5 comments »

This one is also out of the order intended, but I’d like to keep these things together. I still haven’t completed the workshop reorganization project. There seems to be so many distractions that sidetrack me. I recently made a combination shield, & dust hood for my lathe. I looked at a lot of them that you can purchase, but I opted to design my own to fit my own lathe better. It slides under my lathe bed. I guess you can put this into “Getting workshop organ...

Trying to keep a balance while I’m living between woodworking blogs. while doing about a bajillion things between now and Christmas. I just posted a new one over at my wordpress site. Back to the shop… presents to plan and make, and can’t share any photos of those until next month – lest I ruin surprises! Speaking of the holidays, if you also find yourselves at home in the kitchen as well as the shop, I brewed up about 2 gallons of beer today to use in a Stout/gi...

Woodworking Storytellers ....every woodworker is a story to tell—-a very good story, and as such his/her past, present and future is written by the projects of art that surround that artist…. The artist is the creation of the milieu that encircles ever around him and through his basic need to express, he thinks of himself as the author of ‘the art’. And so this process continues on in the chaotic corridors of mind, as the madness of always pre-forming drives one ...
