Surrounded by Wood and Snow --RusticWoodArt

01-02-2008 01:53 PM by frank | 12 comments »

Surrounded by Wood and Snow ....and so once again the gods said; ”let there be snow” and on the second day of the new year there was…. Up here in New England I sometimes wonder if I’m being ‘snowed in’ or ‘snowed out’? I don’t have a lot of extra time this morning as I’m soon out the door, after some breakfast….to get this place opened up. Now some may wonder what’s the difference to being ‘snowed in’...

The Best of 'Wood Art" #9: "Prepping the Wood" --by RusticWodArt

12-31-2007 02:25 PM by frank | 4 comments »

....furthering my ganders, as one would take on examining their progress in the principles of what it take to work the wood by hand! Some-times it does my soul best to just stop and take an inventory of what is happening here with the tools and the wood. Many are the stages of phases that go into the making of a piece of ‘wood art’....design, working the wood by hand, but there all-ways is the need to pay attention to the care and detail of my tools and wood. Further Notes on: ...

The Best of 'Wood Art" #8: "Expressions of Wood Milieu" --by RusticWoodArt

12-30-2007 03:40 PM by frank | 4 comments »

Expressions of Wood Milieu ....continuing on the journey here with wood ripping gusto, is soon found to be a harmony of the joys of hand to wood, only separated by the fine steel blade of my 13” 9TPI pull handsaw. No-dust collection system needed here, no-dangers of kickback, no-need to break my bank savings, no-need for ear protection, (although one would want to wear eye protection) no-wondering about the what if’s when certain thoughts cross the mind of the male populatio...

"Wood Weathered Friends" --by RusticWoodArt

12-26-2007 03:19 PM by frank | 6 comments »

Wood Weathered Friends ....beauty is my way of giving thanks, and drinking deeply from the circumstances of life that surround me. Where I to walk into a room, beauty would fade back into shadows of after-space….but, upon my passing through and beyond, beauty is able to re-focus and splay her-self as an example of the fine Lady she is. Of all the tales of wood that I have learned, there is no-thing that compares with the first taste of abundant life that springs forth, in that ...

"Still Surrounded by Wood...." by RusticWoodArt

12-24-2007 02:40 PM by frank | 8 comments »

Still Surrounded by Wood…. ....even after some multiple snows. And so life is good, living and working out in the elements of all seasons, while giving back to the wild of the land, some thoughts on imaging that have of recent days come my way. I had stated in my last blog story that the time of green picture images had come to an end, as I was being shifted now to a time of posting over the coming months, pictures of white granular icy snow. Snow falls following the downward pull...

"This Old Mold House" #8: We have a deal !

12-23-2007 04:51 PM by Dusty | 17 comments »

My buddy knew the deal for the house was a good one and never hesitated when deciding to put an offer in on the house. He did just that. I wrote the offer up along with the contract for doing all the demolition, construction and remodeling work. The documents were clear, and concise in addition to being easy to understand. I called the owner’s son-in-law to inform him that the purchase agreement would be sent overnight in the mail. I asked him to get back to me as soon as pos...

"Ghost's of Wood" --by RusticWoodArt

12-21-2007 02:23 PM by frank | 2 comments »

Ghost’s of Wood ....this place i am found in as part of the all, can be said to be a mis-taken identity, that preceded from what other’s called the call, before i made a case for individuality-of-entity…. —-when i was young and free as the rivulets of wind swept icy snow flakes, there was the sense of knowing all that i needed to know, and what was there to stop my dreams from entertaining my imagination, since who could stand before the presence of who i am̷...

Tools I make (sharpening stones, planes and irons) #1: Making a honing stone

12-20-2007 06:25 PM by Daren Nelson | 20 comments »

I mentioned in one of my project post where I pictured a small hand plane that I made in my shop that I also make the irons and sharpening stones. I of course make the wood too, since I have a sawmill. Others showed interest in more details, so here they are. I did not know where to start. I am starting with a honing stone I “made”. It did not work out exactly as planned. It is a very good stone and I will use it for honing razors personally and in my business (I run a small sh...
