The Best of 'Wood Art" #12: "Found a Power Tool"

01-14-2008 03:03 PM by frank | 10 comments »

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...

The Best of 'Wood Art" #11: "Where Are the Power Tools" --by RusticWoodArt

01-13-2008 06:25 PM by frank | 5 comments »

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...

The Best of 'Wood Art" #10: "Polyporus betulinus" --by RusticWoodArt

01-11-2008 02:56 PM by frank | 4 comments »

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’…. And so if any want to follow, then here’s a short course in General Mycology….or as some may say,....WHO-ology and WHAT-ology….! Walking the woods and gathering wood is not the only thing I gather, since what good is wood unless ones starts to un...

"Teller of Life’ as I Now Live Wood" --by RusticWoodArt #9: "The Passion of Wood"

01-08-2008 02:42 PM by frank | 5 comments »

The Passion of Wood How splendiferous is my joy at writing, as I sit here in the mornings, be-fore the sun has had a chance to display a magnificence of splaying rays. This is when by writing with pen and paper, ‘the why’, concerning my medicine of ink is flowing best and the images of imagination take on their body of words. This is when I rise above the cathedrals and temples built by hands of men//women and soar into the rapturous volumes of an opened heavens delight. Storie...

"Waunderings in Ones Back-Yard WoodLot" --by RusticWoodArt

01-05-2008 05:24 PM by frank | 6 comments »

Waunderings in Ones Back-Yard WoodLot ....crunching the landscape of snowflakes, i soon took a waundering walkabout, where all is silently content within their respected milieu, awaiting those birthing pangs that signal a spectacular spring….. —-were it not for these striving images of imagination,who would be found to come and rescue a soul such as i,since long ago in times of olden beholden begotten wood turnings,i walked right out of sight from those who had long tried to...

Surrounded by Wood and Snow --RusticWoodArt

01-02-2008 01:53 PM by frank | 12 comments »

Surrounded by Wood and Snow ....and so once again the gods said; ”let there be snow” and on the second day of the new year there was…. Up here in New England I sometimes wonder if I’m being ‘snowed in’ or ‘snowed out’? I don’t have a lot of extra time this morning as I’m soon out the door, after some breakfast….to get this place opened up. Now some may wonder what’s the difference to being ‘snowed in’...

The Best of 'Wood Art" #9: "Prepping the Wood" --by RusticWodArt

12-31-2007 02:25 PM by frank | 4 comments »

....furthering my ganders, as one would take on examining their progress in the principles of what it take to work the wood by hand! Some-times it does my soul best to just stop and take an inventory of what is happening here with the tools and the wood. Many are the stages of phases that go into the making of a piece of ‘wood art’....design, working the wood by hand, but there all-ways is the need to pay attention to the care and detail of my tools and wood. Further Notes on: ...

The Best of 'Wood Art" #8: "Expressions of Wood Milieu" --by RusticWoodArt

12-30-2007 03:40 PM by frank | 4 comments »

Expressions of Wood Milieu ....continuing on the journey here with wood ripping gusto, is soon found to be a harmony of the joys of hand to wood, only separated by the fine steel blade of my 13” 9TPI pull handsaw. No-dust collection system needed here, no-dangers of kickback, no-need to break my bank savings, no-need for ear protection, (although one would want to wear eye protection) no-wondering about the what if’s when certain thoughts cross the mind of the male populatio...
