Topographical Tree Study and Giving Kudos #5: "Stone and Wood" --by RusticWoodArt

11-28-2007 02:16 PM by frank | 1 comment »

Stone and Wood ....study deep and go within, for in these inwards of stone and wood, beats the heart of my love’s in-flame, where naught but wight’s such as i can go for peace-full respite…. —-sing forth the study of my soul, i go a caroling within the depths of these here woods, while none there is that crosses my path as fair weathered fiend, but the arrow that flees to it’s point of yonder destiny…. —-why sitting here just now in mornings ...

Topographical Tree Study and Giving Kudos #4: "Obstreperous to Traditions of Workin' Wood" ---by RusticWoodArt

11-27-2007 02:45 PM by frank | 6 comments »

Obstreperous to Traditions of Workin’ Wood ....it is in the course of my daily meds, those inner pictures of imagination’s roaring meditation, that i am lost within the stillness of your soul, where finding the spirit in the tree speaks much of who i am…. —-tread lightly upon the heart of those who have no-taste, for poetic ‘verbal flowers’ that bring forth fruits of pleasure, in the hands of prophetic prophets drinking from wells of inspiration, givi...

Going Pro Part 2: Are you a Pioneer? You'll Need that Spirit.

10-05-2007 04:21 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 11 comments »

Going full time at working with your woodworking tools is quite a daunting task. It was, and still is for me. I get quite a few emails, visitors, and phone calls from other folks, so I know it is daunting for everyone that considers it. I try to be honest with them, about the cost and benefits. I have given out some bits and pieces of my “Pioneering Spirit” sermon over the past months to various individuals, but never all in one place before. So, I decided this morning to...

Going Pro Part 1: Are you so Impassioned you can't stand it? Did you Consider........

10-05-2007 03:34 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 14 comments »

Over in the Forum, there is a question about Going Pro with woodworking, and what should be considered. The Forum Writer stated to “be honest.” I decided to post my comments there, and then also as a Blog Post. It will be easier for me to find my own comments later, and to document the thoughts as a Blog. Just a few misc., and random thoughts, as I don’t have much time this morning 1) Full time is so different than part-time, or hobby woodworking, that there isn’t any c...

A Kansas Lumberjock Offical Meeting at Kev's Place

06-13-2007 04:01 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 13 comments »

After reading Martin’s blog yesterday about all of us having some lumberjock club meetings, I did one of those head slap moments and thought out loud, “Why didn’t I think of that?” What a great idea, a nice way to tie us altogether….actual face, to face club meetings. I was first visited by Joel Tille from Iowa. Then, it was Kevin Larcom from Wichita. Now, Karson tells me that he will honor me by a visit late this summer while he is in Kansas seeing famil...

A Visit from "Kev", a Fellow Lumberjock

05-11-2007 03:19 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 5 comments »

Yesterday, I enjoyed an afternoon of getting to know a fellow lumberjock, “Kev”, otherwise known as Kevin Larcom from Wichita. He has a design for a Thorsen Table Challenge project, but didn’t have any wood. So, I set him up with some walnut and maple. I’m anxious to see how it comes together by the end of the Month. I loaned him my Sam Maloof, George Nakashima, Mira Nakashima, and Krenov books, so look out world, he can’t help but motivated to make dust no...

End of April Update, with a Diversified Methodology for running an art-based business

04-30-2007 05:30 AM by Mark A. DeCou | 15 comments »

Wow, 19 days since I last blogged. What have I been doing? Working has been on the forefront of my mind this past month, with mounting medical bills from the “March from Hell” and prior commitments and deadlines, keeping me busy, but not typing much. I am starting to get a lot of personal emails, and they have been the focus of my computer time lately. I keep thinking that I’m nearing the end of my current commission work for St. Anthony’s church, and then I find another reason to keep ...
