Woods of My Heart ....the stories I write are etched in wood and formed from within, as out of my heart…. Hard wood, soft wood, native wood, exotic wood, heartwood, sapwood, spalted wood, punky wood, rough wood, finished wood, live edge wood, straight edge wood, hand worked wood, machined wood, green wood, air dried wood, kiln dried wood, rock wood, curly wood, wavy wood, new wood, old wood, reclaimed wood, recycled wood, traditional wood, plastic wood….and then there is: Ru...

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 ...

The Art of Silent Hearing “The first demand any work of art makes upon us is surrender. Look, Listen. Receive. Get yourself out of the way.” by C. S. Lewis, An Experiment in Criticism ....the truth is that I am still learning to be silent before that piece of wood art that is ‘before’ me…. Getting my-self out of the way allows me to see what is be-fore my beginning as the wood I use pre-dates my time and will be around long after. In thinking about what C. S. Lewis ...

Wood Chips Singing In Rhapsody ....and so I am refreshed in the power of this moment as my hand grips the curved head adze and my fingers once again know their place as they embrace the wooden ash handle. My mind is staid as my eyes are once again enlivened by the beauty of this piece of maple lying here before me on these two sawhorses. Oh yes, for just a second my thoughts drift back as seconds become minutes and minutes are lost within the moment of now and time is vanquished – routed o...

....going on a ‘walkabout’ through the untamed corridors of a mind freed to explore its own labyrinth…. I am constantly amazed by the workings of wood and the effect that wood has upon those who come in contact with it. This is the essence or what I like to call the ‘mystic of wood’ and as the wood wills, so also does it work to seek out and claim a sacrifice in the lives of those workers of wood, who therefore and thereafter ‘live wood’. And w...
