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...
Echo-Friendly Ways To Work the Wood ....your wooden soul, is but the sole of your sitting, and as all rustic tools of wood, your rustic spirit creates an image for imagination…. ....hand planning…. ....with a vivid imagination…. In this day of high tech, high price tags and higher yet soaring costs of what many think they need, to have a go at woodworking, along with all those needed add-ons….that one must purchase after the initial major pu...
It’s coming along. Thursday I managed to get all of the tip done (bottom of the picture) and most of the way to the top.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ At this point, things got pretty slow. While doing the tip, moving down as well as moving up, I could do 4 planks at a time and have the first one dry by the time I finished the 4th. Then I could start over and just keep going. Once the tip was done, I could only do 2 at a time and then had to wa...

So, in continuation of the drunken canoe series (wine cabinet/rack), here’s what I’ve accomplished up till now (Mon, Tue, Wed): I have a pretty small shop so in order to work with the long lumber on the band saw, I had to move it. Note the crude stand to get the saw table to the same hight as the other surfaces.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The cut using the band saw was way too wobbly with the 3/8” blade. I ordered a 3/4”...
Birthed Color ....crocus wood ashes,released color births image,i am paused for now…. Thank you.GODSPEED,FrankRusticWoodArt email@example.com://frank.wordpress.com/ —”....work smart, work safe, and live, to work the wood….”
Living Within the Shadow of Crazy Fire ....tread softly on the mind of a man inspired by imagination, since who can afford to play the devil’s advocate, when those who are caught between the planes of time, know no-world to hold them down in audiences of respected places…. ....and then i remembered an-other time where…. —-i also was seemingly caught out there in a fools paradise, begging for bread and wages from those other’s dictates, those ones who...
Well, I guess with my first blog entry I kind of set a precedence of being a scrounger so we’ll continue with a little project I made for the garden.Years ago I was given a huge cherry log. At 34” in diameter and 10’ long it was quite a monster setting in the driveway but as with all woodworkers I had visions of a beautiful piece of furniture when the time came. Sawing it up with the chainsaw was a quite chore and a feat in itself but we manage to get some beautiful wood. ...
An Introduction of Wood Happenings So it’s that time again….and if you’ve spent any amount of time around here at LJ; last spring, summer and fall then you must know by now, some-what as to my occasional excursions into the forests and woods of New England. This year I have decided to re-name and post under a continuation of short story ‘series’ and so I will be calling these posted blog stories….”Hobbit Holes in MyWorld”. J. R. R. Tolkien on...
I know, I’m crazy trying to do this with only 2 weeks before the deadline but… I picked up the maple today. I was charged for 16BF, but I think it’s really a little more. Of course, it’s clean, so it’s actually less. While I was there, I picked up my usual supply of “random blocks”. This stack cost me only $20! So, what am I making? Well, I wouldn’t be attempting this with only a 2 week deadline unless I already had the mold made from t...
