"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #58: Warriors of The Wood

09-13-2009 09:52 AM by frank | 10 comments »

Warriors of Wood ….i have travailed the road that others could not see,and while on this road i carried pictures inside my head,where none could side-track me from my dreams of wood,just as wood and i have learned to deal with our times of age…. ….still working wood just as the wood works me in style,my character has many times been planed by the hand of wood,till even now there is the gnawing pain that pushes me faster,much to do as still counting the opportunities of project...

turnings #8: red oak "70's ashtray" - square edge bowl turning

08-20-2009 02:04 AM by Gary Fixler | 7 comments »

I found a nice 5’ piece of red oak at Home Depot that was a bit odd in hue, having more depth to its grain than what I usually see there. I had visions of turning some square plates, so I snagged it: I really slacked off on pics of this turning. This is the only one: In it, I’ve cut the end from the plank to square it up and remove the chipped edges. Then I cut 2 pieces off as long as the plank was wide (7-1/4”). Then I cut some squares of birch from a leng...

Barn Cat in Training and More…. I might as well introduce a new member in my barn and tell you some of her history. To start out with it might also help if I was to explain that the barn you are seeing here is an English Barn dated from around 1780. My wife and I started gutting this barn back in 2000 and then while I was on the road most of that winter, she along with a crew took the barn down in about a weeks time after numbering all the bents. Next after taking a year to get o...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #51: Sacred Places of Wood

07-31-2009 05:04 AM by frank | 10 comments »

Sacred Places of Wood ….herein lies the door to my soul,and where is the worker of wood’s soul to be found,but in the shop of their own making,far re-moved and off the beaten path of to-day’s clutter…. ….out here with the wood i can let imagination spread her wings,just as the lady called wisdom also dwells deep within these walls,enter in at this door and one enters a sacred place as time expires,just as in the forest of wood that so encircles me calling out my na...

tests #1: a thin, fig dish test

07-17-2009 01:39 PM by Gary Fixler | 8 comments »

This is from nearly a month ago. I’m behind on my adventures. Chucking something properly in a lathe takes a little bit of thought and prep work. I only had about an hour after work, but was in the mood to learn a bit more. In this test, I simply wanted to see if I could make a thin, dish-like object in a small chunk of Indian Laurel (Ficus microcarpa). I had recently acquired a ton of it, so I just pinched it between centers and had at it. The test dish I would turn was from a pi...
