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

1610 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 ...

Kite Camera Reel #7: Reel Progress...

1708 days ago by CaptainSkully | 5 comments »

Not much to say. I’ve got some video editing stuff to figure out (upside down footage – camera is currently dangling upside down underneath the rig – and how to play some sappy sailing music in the background), but otherwise it was a success. I’m going to coat all the parts with three coats of Arm-R-Seal to try to keep the saltwater out. Wait until you see the footage from the kitecam!

Kite Camera Reel #6: Lighten Up!

1709 days ago by CaptainSkully | 5 comments »

Here’s the two reels after I strategically removed about half the wood. It’s still strong, but a whole lot lighter to stuff into the luggage. We’ve addressed the canting keel problem of the camera, and we got our camera/enclosure in the mail today, so I think we’re set. I figured out how to invert .avi video, so we’re going to hang the camera upside down from the middle of the parallel linkage. Tomorrow, we’re going to jump on a boat for an hour and...

Kite Camera Reel #5: Wright Brothers, Eat Your Hearts Out!

1710 days ago by CaptainSkully | 7 comments »

So today after sailing lessons, we used the boat to “test drive” our contraption. The kite flew very well on just 4 knots under motor, but we had to tweak the lines a bit to get it to fly horizontally. We discussed that the kite can only be flown while we’re going upwind, but that still gives us lots of leeway. The reel performed very well, especially the two speed handles. As you can see, I’m in the process of lightening the reel by drilling holes. We’r...

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...

Kite Camera Reel #4: Almost Done!

1716 days ago by CaptainSkully | 1 comment »

I was able to squeeze another day in the shop. We started out by finishing up the parallel linkage with the barrel bolts we got from the hardware store. Then we fabricated the Brooxe hanger and the camera enclosure mount. Finally, it was time for the handles. ^ Handles installed on the reel assembly ^ Camera enclosure mounted on the bottom of the parallel linkage ^ Brooxe hanger showing how kite string winds around the “mushrooms” in the top member of the parallel l...

1718 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...
