Tree Friend…. ....drink deeply of the wood that is within, and know for a certainty of well be-ing, that all that resides in the soul of a tree, will yet come to life in the spirit of rustic ‘wood art’…. —-the gawker’s have gone as passing on, but you my friend are still much watching and talking, these moments of years we shared cannot be forgotten, as i still watch and listen to hear what you have to say…. —-your slabs of wooden g...
Well, in case some of you hadn’t guessed, I didn’t make the deadline. Oh well, I’ll still have a great wine rack to sell when it’s done. Thought I’d post the progress up to this point. I’m going to put this on the shelf for a while as I need to try to make a living here. Yes, I’ll keep y’all posted when I pick it up again. Here is the steam/lamination setup. Again, as they say, you can never have too many clamps.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~...

Untrammeled Possibilities and Unexpended Opportunities ....out here is where i was first awakened, awakened to what-where-when and why, awakened to all the un-trammeled possibilities that call my name, awakened to the un-expended opportunities i gather to…. Out here silence starts off as a thing of beauty, but the silence soon passes on to a sound of great talking going on between the different players in this outside play of nature…. ....walking the woods out here is...

Well, that didn’t work. I guess I still don’t have enough steam. I’m going to have to go the lamination route. I’ll keep the orientation of the planks the same as on the original board to keep the appearance right. I hope I have enough wood left for the rest of it. Fortunately the rules say you can use multiple boards. I just don’t look forward to spending another 3 hours and mor money to get more.
Well, the rough sanding on the outside is done down to 150 grit. I used a belt sander with medium grit to do the bulk of it then an RO palm sander for the 150. The belt sander is an absolute no no if working on a cedar canoe but on the maple it worked great. There’s always a few gaps between the planks that have to be filled. I mixed up some filler using white wood glue (dries clear) and maple sanding dust to use as filler. I used epoxy and sanding dust when building the canoe and th...

Articles of Expression With Wood ....cabin construction, construction allows ‘wood art’,i am mis-fit ‘tween…. While out working in the cabin the other day, I noticed that this one was following me from room to room, one of my shorter pieces here….as this one still fits into the head-room of the cabin. Hmmm….not like my head-room that I carry around all the time….never could figure where those articles of expression where supposed to fit into...
Coalescing With Wood ....my life is lived as a worker of wood, these stories i tell are the fruits of my dreams, where it not so i would have told you so, just as gifted stories tweak my imagination in the all that i am… —-yes i laugh at my-self for the rustic wood spirit i am, just as when i pause in the woods for silence, and often out here i can hear the ancient ones laughing also, these are as much their stories of laughter as mine…. ....stories are told among t...
