My First Workbench #34: Slice and Dice the new Leg Vise Chop

330 days ago by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Finally got a chance to sweat in the shop….I mean work in the shop today. Wisconsin may not be as hot as Texas (ever) but we sure get some humid days and being inside the garage, even with a box fan going full blast is good recipe for weight loss! Today’s first order of business was to start crafting a carving mallet so I could do the details on the leg chop. I don’t have one and quite frankly, I just think they’re cool. But…I’m going to take a non-tr...

My First Workbench #12: Day 12: More mortises.

699 days ago by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

(Only one picture for this short update today so I decided to post it here too!) Nothing special today, just more working on chopping mortises and 3 more tenons…lots of sawing. Lots. But I have to say I’m seeing a little improvement in my abilities to feel when the wood is telling me I’m going to fast or off angle on the saw strokes. It’s getting easier to saw too—-I’m not putting near as much pressure as I did on the first cut of this project. It f...

And so I thought that today I would post a couple of photos of some of the mallets that I have made.

2456 days ago by frank | 3 comments »

Waunderin’ Characters of Wood ....my time is the culmination of the work of a universe, where were it not for others of me singing verse, i might even think that i was the only teller of rhyme, but as so often happens to actors in fields of mime, —-words fade and my hands give in to waunderin’ characters of wood…. So put your mind boots of imagination on and here we go once again, in the dusk of a fading sun, into the throes of cacoethes…. ....’...

"Indian Paint Brushes" --by RusticWoodArt

2593 days ago by frank | 6 comments »

Indian Paint Brushes ....the extension of my being, is the gifting of all things as one, just as the where-with-all of partaking from daily seeing, has now stepped forth to include my completed self as being finished and done…. And so at the end of the day on Saturday, I walked through the back yard and was drawn to the beauty of these….what we call, ‘Indian Paint Brushes’. When mowing out back we will skip large areas of the yard at times and leave this and othe...
