"Inveterate Punning of Wood Creations" --by RusticWoodArt

2585 days ago by frank | 1 comment »

Inveterate Punning of Wood Creations ….clearly i have be-come now, of some consequence in this matter, which has issued forth from me, called by my right-full name of ‘wood movement’.... —-and were it not so, would not i be in-debited, to the common fusing of ill timed vagrant slobbering’s, of the many who would so seek to contain me after their way…. —-i am as limitless as the stars in the heavens, who all-ready knowing their movement in ti...

'Written In and By Wood" --by RusticWoodArt

2595 days ago by frank | 3 comments »

Written In and By Wood ....and so I capped the ending of last evening with a short walk in the woods, short walking is not like waundering and means I was only gone for about two hours, but then that also includes about an hour of just sitting in silence and hearing what the forest had to say. On the subject of ‘waundering’ let me just add, that all who waunder are not lost, but then some also ‘waunder’ as having slipped the veil….explanation, well maybe in an...

"The Silence of Moments" --by RusticWoodArt

The Silence of Moments ....this passion of the wood that sits before my eye as i, has never stopped sharing the breathing of my circular quest, and were i to give momentum to praise found in heavens sky, then just so shall be also be this silence that bequeaths my best…. the silence of moments such as this, there is known the more of power, then all the words that have ever been spoken to diss, and so i opened my mouth and tasted an hour of flower…. And als...

2604 days ago by frank | 6 comments »

Wood Bench, Wood Joinery and Lookin’ for Bear After finishing up with cutting some logs yesterday and then clearing brush with my wife, I still felt the need to get some relaxation by doing some trail ridding. So after asking my wife if she wanted to come along, which is really a no-brainer since she’s all-ways ready for the woods….it was off on the atv. ....and so we ended up here at this spot which sets at one of the high points of our land, in what we refer to as out i...

Summer Challenge 2007 - A Bridge Too Short #1: The Wood.....Being Green!

2604 days ago by Bob Babcock | 2 comments »

I couldn’t resist doing a blog on this. I have no illusions of winning the contest given the competition and since the whole idea of LJ is to share I wanted to do just that. So…no cards close to the chest here…I’m showing my hand. Many of you have seen the bridge in our garden. I built it as a “temporary” solution 8 years ago from some leftover fence. Well it’s starting to show its age and I figure it will be great to kill two birds with one stone....

"Anisotropic is Wood" --by RusticWoodArt

2605 days ago by frank | 3 comments »

Anisotropic is Wood ....stilled by the beauty of this moment, i am increased in size by my understanding of wood, by the elements of being anisotropic along the grain lines of direction of movement, there yet remains the reciprocally of perpendicular axis…. —-these are they that seek to overtake me, along my path of waundering dimensions, caused in part by my make up of being a cellular fiber individual, who according to my growth rings which also rotate with respect to mois...

"Working Hands Make Good Progress" --by RusticWoodArt

2617 days ago by frank | 6 comments »

Working Hands Make Good Progress ….and so here i go again,sliding across the grains of wood,kicking up some sawdust as i plough a plane,looking to be fitted in tight for all good…. And so it was that Tuesday evening I managed to get this one finished up and started tweaking the saw to achieve it’s height of perfection, in the midst of cutting for ‘wood joinery’. One could call this one a ‘dovetail saw’....’sliding dovetail saw’....’push...

Next Project - Music Box

2618 days ago by che | 1 comment »

I’m going to try and enter my next project into the wood joinery contest. I’m going to try and modify the Rockler music box plan to satisfy the wood joinery requirements. I think the challenge is going to be the sides. So I’m looking for ideas on how to joint the sides. They call for simple miter joints but that won’t work for the wood joinery contest. Please comment with any ideas. This picture shows a glass ...
