Wood Scupper ....your eyes corrupted,my being as fire melts ice,i am soon turned out….—by flp ——————————————————————————————————————————————————————...
Found a Power Tool ....eeeh, eeeh, eeeh, eeeh, eeeh….was the sounding of rasping, vibrating, sonic, electronic, springboard, greeting that pulled me up from my earlier place of peace-full slumbering dream-scape, into the now of later remembering, that this is my inhabited world of 2008. So once again I hit the snooze button and told myself that just a few more minutes would not matter all that much as I felt the coldness of the early morning air, shifting around within the closure of...
Where Are the Power Tools ....climbing up out of the saw pit, the worker of wood looked around and was under-stand-ably fathomed by the appearance of what he saw from up here on top. ”Just like climbing out of a box”; he was heard to exhale as he shook the wide brimmed hat free from all the particles of saw chips that gravity had brought his way. Stomping off in the direction of the sap house and muttering to himself, I could not quite understand what the words were that he was...
Polyporus betulinus ....just thought I would post a shot of one of my keepers of the ideas that fungi around inside my head, before manifesting their molds of desire in the mind-full beauty of ‘wood art’….

Defining Design in Wood ....and so I continue finding the numbers that can be assembled out of 2’‘x4’‘x96’’, or as I have now come to see as (2) re-sawed wood pieces of 1’‘x4’‘x96’’.... Designs are the dreams I write//draw on paper, after imagination has come back, from where she flies in the lofty clouded skies of inspiration.
