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

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...

1709 days ago by frank | 5 comments »

WoodShop Tales Beyond ….two trees blowing in the wind,a mighty forest surrounds these centennial’s,two loner’s sending out their branching eaves,many sentients come to waunder along the way…. ….i was younger in those days that are behind,one worker of wood leaves his shop for open space,out here i am but the shadow of my own imagination,my sentiments to those who can-not come out to play…. ….two tree’s,two loner’s,many sentient’s,one work...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #67: Turning A Page In Life

1604 days ago by frank | 9 comments »

Turning A Page In Life…. ….can we define the moment that wood took hold, can i fathom the canker i have be-come within my woods, who can understand that time when light exposed pine, and color bore witness to the heavens under which we lived…. ….i have walked in silence before the trees of these woods, where i shunned the teachings that came from noisy man, after all what is man but a creature of manifold knottiness, sent on his ways by the opinions he ply’s daily ...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #58: Warriors of The Wood

1776 days ago by frank | 10 comments »

Warriors of Wood ….i have travailed the road that others could not see,and while on this road i carried pictures inside my head,where none could side-track me from my dreams of wood,just as wood and i have learned to deal with our times of age…. ….still working wood just as the wood works me in style,my character has many times been planed by the hand of wood,till even now there is the gnawing pain that pushes me faster,much to do as still counting the opportunities of project...

More on Sankyaku Uddo ….if i could count all my stories,that have been re-corded as growth rings in trees,what would soon come forth is how small of faith i am,for who am i to stand up equal too one white oak….. ....it was one day back when that i walked into the forest of wood,and oh the joy and pain that awaited me in my new found birth,will i ever be able to express in part how my feelings felt back then,the expresso drink that was mixed with my blood and wood sapR...

1794 days ago by frank | 9 comments »

Barn Tales ….and so i sit,watching the pages of my mind,un-fold before my eyes in splendor, surrounded by this old barn and it’s love…. ….old wood and new wood gathered here,calling out my name to come and rest a while,and so after a day of work i leave all behind,to visit with an old friend as friends will do…. ….no-secrets between us but what tales we tell,stories of what has been and our dreams to come,shared feelings of how it might have been done,and the pa...

In Search of Imaginations Greatest Dream ....i am impressed with the beauty of this day,and so i tell a tale of create-create-create,were it not for dreamers such as those who engender,would not the world re-main in the shadows of darker past…. ....creation awaits the dawning of new day suns,just as each moment breathes in the aroma of a fresh breath,expelling all those traditions that keeps one’s mind in chains,and so i live with the awakening dawn of imaginations greatest ...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #37: Live Free....Work Wood

2125 days ago by frank | 4 comments »

Live Free….Work Wood ....jubilant art-full colors drift before my sight,shaking the leaves from off my eyes,straining this veil of flesh to come up higher,where from my mountain-top view i gladly inhale…. ....inhaling the whiffs of passing breeze,i all too soon know that i’ll be counting flakes of snow,but in the rhythms of the seasons where time stands still, i keep on working the wood after patterns of trees who came before…. ....what matters the time of day...

2146 days ago by frank | 7 comments »

Go Ask The Lac-Bug About Finishing WoodIn one of my previous comments on Finishing Recipes and Tricks by SteveKorz and the corresponding forum, I offered these last words; ”I mean when we start thinking about shellac, maybe we should also consult with the lac bug.” I know that one can get technical when it comes to talking about finishing along with all those books and DVDs out there, along with all the recipes we get so hung up in and about….so I have decided to offer a ...
