Reflections on Beavers and Trees Out here in the woods, I am part of a whole picture where what happens with wood….also happens to all involved with wood, plus those un-in-volved with wood….hmmm, are any who are really non-existent from wood? Can a worker of wood be selfish and think that it’s all about wood and that all else will just have to take care of them-selves. Well the answer is yes and no, one can be selfish and think only of their needs when going for wood, but...
Glamdring and The Chainsaw Milling of Pine ....and so twas on one of my visits into the deep woods, that i heard the tales of this sword beater called glamdring,for in the presence of trees and all that speaks of wood,i first was made aware of the weaponsmith’s of gondolin…. —-these were//are they who first learned the lineage of steel,and how to work the metals needed to hold an edge in wood,were as the times of woodworking continue in the landscape here, i sought...

Here is part 2! Unfortunately, I started working and didn’t really break until I was done. Actually it only took about an hour, so I just forgot to take pics in the middle, but here is the final product(excuse the mess on the workbench); And this is what it will look like in the tree. All that is left is a couple coats of outdoor finish and a piece of corn to screw onto the end and its ready to whirl some squirrels!! Thanx for looking and let me know what ya think!
I thought I would start bloging some of my projects from start to finish. This is a really easy project that will be given to my parents once it is done. They have woods all around their house and enjoy all the wildlife in the woods. My wife and I had planned to buy one of these, but seen a price on one in a country shop and I decided to build one instead. This is the starting point. I dont think it should take long, so maybe by tonight I can post a pic of the completed project. Anyway heres ...

It has been really stormy here for the month of June. While not good for some and devastating for the family down the road where a large maple tree turned their new SUV into 2 compact cars—it is a treasure trove for a wood scavenger like me. While we are waiting for me to ignore my paying gig for a day and scavenge some suitable logs for the stool project, I though this might be a good time to go over the tools we wiil need besides the usual lathe and chisels. Key to achieving authen...
Wood From An-Other’s Wood Bin ....and, the beauty that comes from knowing there is a place that I fit in…. ....my days are filled with the ever increasing knowledge that this thing I call wood and working, is my place of having found peace within the cosmic center of my universe…. ....spalted maple; 38’’ wide x 3-1/2’’ thick and 7’-8’ in length and, this is one that I am working on in the evenings here in my outside 360 de...
