Hats off to the creators of this site!

What a fantastic idea and first class all the way! It’s so amazing to me what technology and the internet has enabled us to do.I’ve always enjoyed reading magazine articles about other craftsman and seeing the different things they created. (This is so much better)It blows my mind that Tony over there in Finland is checking out our bar or if I ever felt the urge too make a guitar or something I have no clue about, I know where to go! (what a trip!)Looking forward to having some fun! P....

Topographical Tree Study and Giving Kudos #5: "Stone and Wood" --by RusticWoodArt

11-28-2007 02:16 PM by frank | 1 comment »

Stone and Wood ....study deep and go within, for in these inwards of stone and wood, beats the heart of my love’s in-flame, where naught but wight’s such as i can go for peace-full respite…. —-sing forth the study of my soul, i go a caroling within the depths of these here woods, while none there is that crosses my path as fair weathered fiend, but the arrow that flees to it’s point of yonder destiny…. —-why sitting here just now in mornings ...

Topographical Tree Study and Giving Kudos #4: "Obstreperous to Traditions of Workin' Wood" ---by RusticWoodArt

11-27-2007 02:45 PM by frank | 6 comments »

Obstreperous to Traditions of Workin’ Wood ....it is in the course of my daily meds, those inner pictures of imagination’s roaring meditation, that i am lost within the stillness of your soul, where finding the spirit in the tree speaks much of who i am…. —-tread lightly upon the heart of those who have no-taste, for poetic ‘verbal flowers’ that bring forth fruits of pleasure, in the hands of prophetic prophets drinking from wells of inspiration, givi...

Bar Tops

11-26-2007 04:39 AM by Popintraining | 6 comments »

I’m finding out the hard way, that in order to become a good finisher I need to be an even better refinisher!This has been a long road. I started out using a brush-on spar varnish and quickly realized that there had to be a better way. Now, there is nothing wrong with a brush-on finish except that a bar top is highly visible area and can show a lot of imperfections. Spray-on finishes are always going to give you the best finish. I’ve recently purchased a kremlin sprayer and love i...

Holtzapffel Bench #2: A Lumber Jock Meets Lumber Jack

11-22-2007 08:49 AM by Olaf Gradin | 6 comments »

Last weekend I made my first trip to a local lumber yard for the Holtzapffel bench project. After much deliberation, I had made a firm decision on White Ash as my choice of wood. I’ve not been to many lumber yards, and I’ve never gone to pick out my own rough-cut slices before, so this was quite exciting for me. In my haste, I planned poorly for the hauling of big, heavy woods and had to rent a Home Depot truck for the duration. I drive a Mazda3 which, while Zoom-Zoom and util...

Urban wood to lathe turnings #1: Making traditional wood bowls part 1-Getting the Wood

11-20-2007 07:57 PM by Bob #2 | 15 comments »

We have a limited selection of hardwoods here in Alberta and the prospect of finding suitable pieces for turnings in stock with local suppliers is dismal.I have been on the prowl for a couple of years to track down and process some Manitoba Maple and last week I got pretty lucky.Quite by accident, on my way home, I noticed a felled M/maple(BOX ELDER) in a fellows’ yard.I whipped around the block and knocked on the door. The conversation went like this:Me- Are you going to use that w...

"Finches and Forest of Wood" --by RusticWoodArt

11-15-2007 02:53 PM by frank | 3 comments »

Finches and Forests of Wood ....so in a great big world inside my forest of wood, where some folks have not enough time in their hands, and other’s have too much time to be of any use for common good, the thought flashed through my head this morning concerning finches.... forest of wood,hands,good,finches.... Who feeds the finches….?—-and do you even care? I will let the images speak for themselves….since the selves-of-them speak images…. ....a...

The Best of 'Wood Art" #4: "Evolution and 'Wood Art' in the Process" --by RusticWoodArt

11-14-2007 02:52 PM by frank | 3 comments »

Evolution and ‘Wood Art’ in the Process ”Show me an artist, who has not had to hack his own way through the cluttered groundwork of those who came before and I will show you one who does not know yet their beginning to ending.” ....and so I’m taking some time out, to write some more notes and thoughts here, as I sift through those cascading files within my mind, looking for ‘original idea’….for the ”Upcoming Awards Event” Category: Not...

Woo Hoo, Part Deux #2: There's gold in them thar logs!

11-13-2007 07:19 AM by Douglas Bordner | 25 comments »

The story, for those unfamilar with the first entry, is that I was driving through the neighborhood. Truth be told I had the feeling there was going to be something I was going to find. Highly developed “Free-dar”. I happened upon a yard with the entire length of the sidewalk lined with quartered log sections of a massive maple tree and a sign exhorting me to take all I wanted. I was frustrated because most of the sections were massive. And when I went to toss one in the bed of th...

The Best of 'Wood Art" #3: 'Argaz --by RusticWoodArt

11-12-2007 04:28 PM by frank | 4 comments »

’Argaz Well here you have it….’Argaz (box), not just any box, but the starting of an ‘argaz….and so my Hebrew comes forth in the creating of this wooden piece of coffered ‘wood art’. Where does one start, when one goes for an idea to create and what is the process of gathering a design of images, that have been running freely throughout the airspace of the universe, since before even Abraham was told to number the stars in the heavens? And so I ...
