Tales of A Wood-Worker’s Tools Just a short-sort of a blog//story this morning to get the wood-chips in my arteries flowing again with stimulus from my imagination. Ah yes, that wonder-full word called imagination that in reality becomes the igniter of all that speaks art. To any who refuse to use ‘imagination’ in their wood-working pro-vision, en-vision of contrived design….well, why bother; so lets start creating a story of wood-working tales. Since I’...
Prepping Wood and Shellac for Rain I do hope that all reading herein are understanding that I am writing in retrospect….as these writings are running a few days behind where I am today. My life is much too busy to be writing and testing, plus taking photos on a daily basis, so one could say that I am writing from within a time warp as I also must keep in mind that winter is coming. Winter involves putting some machines to sleep and then there is the waking up of those winter machines...
Frederick’s Francks Ten Commandments These Ten Commandmentsments on seeing/drawing were revealed to me on a mountain, but also in a meadow, on a beach and even in the subway. For their revelation did not come all at once, but in installments, as it were, over the years, and always while I was busy drawing, and invariably on holy ground. But that may be because, while drawing, all ground is holy: unseparated from the Whole. 1. You shall draw everything and every day2. You shall not...
Lets Test Art-Full Shellac ”All that meets the eye with shellac, is more then enough to sustain my love of this finish.” —-by flp And so I started by writing some thoughts of my own down on paper, where the proper thing to do, seemed to be to get out and do some more tests. If one is not testing….and by this I mean constantly testing their own thoughts//opinions and, the thoughts//opinions of others, then how will one learn. A closed mind is a sad place to beR...

Two Maples….One Pine, and…. ....so i stepped outside to the wonders of an outdoor workshop, where some trees where culling my name, having not much time to pass with endless chatter, i reached down and turned my cell-phone off…. —-silence….. ....and so i went up last week and payed my respects to an old friend, one much wiser then me in all the ways of wood, who welcomed me back since our meeting of last fall, while even now this one is busy in the givin...
Barn Cat in Training and More…. I might as well introduce a new member in my barn and tell you some of her history. To start out with it might also help if I was to explain that the barn you are seeing here is an English Barn dated from around 1780. My wife and I started gutting this barn back in 2000 and then while I was on the road most of that winter, she along with a crew took the barn down in about a weeks time after numbering all the bents. Next after taking a year to get o...
Wood Gathering Mode: An Introduction ….wood and hobbits have a way of drawing from each other, so enter in at this enclave and find your-self in an-other world, far from the streams of endless mind clutter that sucks one dry, till I pull my-self through a space bigger then meets the eye, this is where I am released into a world that knows no-boundaries, no-boundaries and therefore no-time restraints and one is free to wonder…. —by flp —————&...
50,000 Words of Wood ....so I’m wondering how many writers are on the roll-call here at LJ? The month of November is a good time to see how many words one can produce, to write a novel….about a story with wooden content or....? Can you write 50,000 words in one month....then you can sit back after the smoke clears and say; ”yes I did….write a novel.” I mean we are workers of wood right, and as such I have many words of thoughts going through my head cons...
