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

2141 days ago 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 #73: What Is Your Size of Wood Art

1541 days ago by frank | 3 comments »

What is Your Size of Wood Art…. ….or does size matter when it comes to working the wood? What is the size you think of when working with wood? And so I have put together a few photos of how I often see into the wood. Trees come in all shapes and sizes and what I do with them often determines their final proportion. Now that I think upon that last sentence I am not sure about the use of the words….’final proportion’. How often have I my-self often received some p...

Wood Screams In The Dark ….now if i could only think with a memory,i might be able to re-member just who I am,the words though there come slower to my mind,and so i argue with my-self that who i see is not me…. —-or is it—- ….that i was born to work the wood but now i feel alone,much of my time is spent trying to stay one step ahead,in this more darker be-ing that pursues me now in time,my-dis-ease of hepatic encephalopathy bids me comatose…. —-or...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #65: Unorthodox WoodWorking Tools....

1699 days ago by frank | 4 comments »

Unorthodox WoodWorking Tools…. ….at some point in my woodworking story,the point was made that i must create beyond,“beyond what” i heard my-self asking again until,“until the dreams you have be-come art” i perceived…. ….so much that i was more at the world’s lost end of my-self,since all my be-ing up until then had be-come as un-perceived,works of art back then all included “other’s” concept for wood,till the responsibility back then was all laid on my shou...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #29: Go Ask The Lac-Bug About Finishing Wood

2133 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 ...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #72: Holes....WoodWorking....and Wood Gathering Mode

1548 days ago by frank | 7 comments »

Holes….WoodWorking….and Wood Gathering Mode I’ve been thinking lately about ‘holes’ and how they are used in my working of the ‘wood’. I had not noticed this trend until I started reviewing my photos here at LJ’s over the years. What seems to be coming out of this endeavor is that I use these holes as a point of ingress into my world of ‘wood art’. I have all-ways talked about boxes and the need to get out of your box, so that ...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #64: Phantom of My WoodWorking Heart

1705 days ago by frank | 5 comments »

Phantom of My Woodworking Heart ….out of the city i walked one day into a forest of wood,never looking back at those objects that once held me,saving my soul from the plight of the lost and un-redeemed,i came to re-pair my-self from the time zone of asphalt jungles…. ….those ills i took on then back there in that forest of steel,have now cursed me again with a reminder of a jaded past,but I am far better now by the under-standing i gained from wood, i was made for wood and in ...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #45: Controversy and Knots

2013 days ago by frank | 7 comments »

Controversy and Knots ....i love the controversy that comes from working the wood, i love the controversy of knotted knotty knots, picking up pen and paper i stir some words that cut like wood, soon i realize that words and wood and knots are all what it’s about…. ....controversy ‘just is’ the sweet smelling aroma that describes my knots, and so i throw out some descriptive words by telling tales of knots, ...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #54: What Lights Up An English Barn

1793 days ago by frank | 9 comments »

What Lights Up An English Barn Well I believe that it doesn’t take much to get me talking about barns….or might I add English Barns. I was asked to post some pictures of my barn, but how could I ever just show some pictures without also going into some barn terminology? From the picture above I am standing on the third floor of the barn….or if some-one is counting the cellar also, then I guess one could say the fourth floor. My wife bartered some homemade jams for ...
