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

09-08-2008 02:32 AM 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 ...

The Revelation of Wood ....some folks would say we are known by the company we keep,i prefer to say that the company i keep is what’s penned on paper,and that my thoughts work them-selves out as word friends,until in the end i am gathered in the forest by my friends of wood…. ....so it might be that after i have some-day slipped the veil,that ones of few or many might start opening my books of thought,etchings of imagination’s greatest words that speak of wood drea...

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 #26: Drupes and Drupaceous Nuts as Tung Oil

08-31-2008 06:31 AM 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’.

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #24: All Good Wood Projects Need....

08-18-2008 04:03 AM by frank | 3 comments »

All Good Wood Projects Need…. ....a StoryLine! Yes that’s right, and with the story line one can start with an image in their head, which when transferred to wood, shows a start. Now this project began before….where we are jumping into at this stage….but the before only included some wood, jointing of the edges, planning the two faces, then the process of glue ups, cutting the inside out with a jigsaw and the original orbital pre-sanding with #60, #80 and #100 gr...
