"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #26: Drupes and Drupaceous Nuts as Tung Oil

08-31-2008 06:31 AM by frank | 19 comments »

Drupes and Drupaceous Nuts as Tung Oil So lets cut to the center of the fruit….like cutting to the quick, and talk about China Wood Oil, wood nut oil or just plain ‘tung oil’. And since we’re talking in the language of botany, maybe it would be best too first say that tung oil is not a true nut, but is a fruit that comes to us as a drupe or what is also called ‘stone fruit’. Definition of a drupe….stone fruit is: ’’a one-seeded indehisc...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #25: WoodWorking Vision

08-20-2008 02:44 AM by frank | 3 comments »

WoodWorking Vision ....how big is your wood-working vision?....and what happens to your head-room once the expansion within your head decides to get a vision of be-ing a-head outside?....where will you get your vision from and will you also frequent the market-places of traditions to honor the money-changers? ....for without a vision your wood will perish! ....just as the fire you feel within your belly of now,will just as soon also go into the alley ways of extinction,just like ...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #24: All Good Wood Projects Need....

08-18-2008 04:03 AM by frank | 3 comments »

All Good Wood Projects Need…. ....a StoryLine! Yes that’s right, and with the story line one can start with an image in their head, which when transferred to wood, shows a start. Now this project began before….where we are jumping into at this stage….but the before only included some wood, jointing of the edges, planning the two faces, then the process of glue ups, cutting the inside out with a jigsaw and the original orbital pre-sanding with #60, #80 and #100 gr...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #23: WoolGathering I Go

08-13-2008 02:12 AM by frank | 10 comments »

WoolGathering I Go ....not all who walk know where they are going,not all who wonder know how to use their mind,not all who waunder are lost in the woods of their choice,but then who but a poet can woolgather on paper just as in the forest…. These are the memories I create, ....of waunderings out here in the woods, ....that encompass me on all sides of my environmental up-bringing, ....where often the one doing the dreaming, .....awakens to find that all is more then a dream.̵...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #22: Which came first....!

08-04-2008 03:48 AM by frank | 6 comments »

Which came first....! ....and so there remains a question that has been posed to me….which I shall attempt in some feeble way to exploit some light upon. It has been asked: Does art imitate nature....? or Does nature imitate art....? WOW! What a power pack of a question or either the shadow of thinking that would tend to describe and inscribe me within a box. Can any answer this question or is the question it-self designed, to limit an answer within the fabric of two popu...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #21: Glamdring, Summer Awards and, Left Overs

07-29-2008 06:27 AM by frank | 3 comments »

Glamdring, Summer Awards and, Left Overs ....and so it ‘just is’. All good stories must have a place of start….then some middle ground….and then comes the ‘whats all left over’ or maybe I should say, the ‘left overs’. And as such, it seems fitting that since this is about ‘hobbit holes in my-world’....I should bring in one famous player, who working with me helped get this story going back in the early days of summer. That bein...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #20: All I See Is No-Junk

07-28-2008 03:57 AM by frank | 4 comments »

All I See Is No-Junk In my world, (and not as the lines where some see, when the plane of time is split as between earth and heaven….what those jokester’s of wordy word explanations first told us, to limit us into seeing their definitions of linear horizons….hmmm, quite a word spread there//here) means; there is no-junk! How can one see junk, when the world is filled with the beauty of creative genus and we as workers of wood are part of this process? And so it was tha...

07-28-2008 02:23 AM by frank | 5 comments »

Looking at Jonke ....and so i went walking in search of some jonke,that there word of middle age time frame of mind,and what i found was not some more latin names for juncus,but what i searched for was before mine eyes all-ready as ‘junk art’.... —-one can get so lost in the definitions that are imposed upon us,till it seems that our mind just can-not shake free and see,those boxes are ever around to drown the imagination of mind,while other’s pray to keep th...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #18: Reflections on Beavers and Trees

07-21-2008 12:41 AM by frank | 18 comments »

Reflections on Beavers and Trees Out here in the woods, I am part of a whole picture where what happens with wood….also happens to all involved with wood, plus those un-in-volved with wood….hmmm, are any who are really non-existent from wood? Can a worker of wood be selfish and think that it’s all about wood and that all else will just have to take care of them-selves. Well the answer is yes and no, one can be selfish and think only of their needs when going for wood, but...

Wooden Throne’s of Power —-it takes two, to make as one.... ....his and hers to sit side be-side, hers and his to share their moments of bliss, hers to confide the years they’ve shared, his to remember her beauty of now, ——and as the years roll on—-their shared forest thrones of to-getherness.... —by flp ——————————————————R...
