"De-Barking a Cherry Slab" --by RusticWoodArt

10-17-2007 05:03 AM by frank | 7 comments »

De-Barking a Cherry Slab ....well there you have it, so the question that remains is hidden in a shroud of mystery; “who did the de-barkin’ on the cherry tree that our famous boy wonder and first president of the United States cut down….? So it happened that after my last trip up north, checking on suppliers of wood slabs, for some furniture I’m contemplating, that I ran across this piece of cherry slab at a no-refuse price….so if any want to guess first, I...

"Slabbin' at Wood" #8: "Wood Ballet Dancing in the FreeHand" --by RusticWoodArt

10-16-2007 01:59 PM by frank | 4 comments »

Wood Ballet Dancing in the FreeHand And so it’s time, time to get back on track here and answer some questions, plus try to give an understanding to any and all that want to try this type of slabbin’ at wood. One of the issuing egresses that make my projects so long, is the time and effort I take in the planning of the project from start to finish. I really do try and make use of telling the truth, that when I say ‘hand made’ the ‘wood art’ that I co...

"Feeding the Belly of the Beast" --by RusticWoodArt

10-16-2007 04:22 AM by frank | 6 comments »

Feeding the Belly of the Beast ....so being true to my nature, I knew it was time to stop being cold and so last night was the initial first light, of feeding the ‘belly of the beast’. Been way busy around here as of late, workin’ mostly outside and farther on down in the forest of woods. So not much time for posting, but I have been gathering a lot of outside wood photos for future blog stories and also for winter gazing when I need to escape the realities of all that...

Sherwood Forest #1: Pondering Our Wooden Orphans

10-12-2007 10:46 PM by A.W. "Pappy" Ford | 15 comments »

I find myself on the drive into work this morning looking at the world through a new set of eyes: everywhere I look all the sudden I see scraps of usable wood going to waste: burn piles, stray fence boards, stacks of broken shipping pallets, old furniture destined for the landfill. Would it be obsessive if I said I have an entirely new appreciation of twigs? It just seems to be everywhere and one of those things I didn’t notice before being bitten by the woodworking bug. I want to...

"Escaping a Brain Freezin' MeltDown With WoodArt" --by RusticWoodArt

10-10-2007 07:26 PM by frank | 9 comments »

Escaping a Brain Freezin’ MeltDown With WoodArt ....what you must understand is that here I am sitting this morning before this crazy computer screen and all these figures of dimensions on my desk….blueprints, sketch designs, numbers and more numbers, while I put together an order for an up and coming renovation. This is not the part of the job I like and so I am giving thanks that the numbers are all starting to finally come together. It’s a rainy day here and as I ta...

"Logged Off 'Wood Art' Treasure" --by RusticWoodArt

10-08-2007 03:57 AM by frank | 10 comments »

Logged Off ‘Wood Art’ Treasure ....silent and screaming at all of now, i went far from those who tried to define me, after all since i am my own definition, why should i let other’s impose their stories upon me…. —-and over time i came to realize the need for being more, more about being about my own artistic relevance to capturing art, art is the purpose of style that co-inhabits with who i am, played out after staying up for ages inside my head…. ...

Colors That New Hampshire and Japan Share The peak time of year Each September and October people from all over the world come to New Hampshire to see the fall foliage and take a foliage tour. Only two places in the world, New Hampshire and we’re told parts of Japan, have the unique combination of climate and topography that results in this brilliant foliage, but nowhere does the landscape, from mountains to the lakes and sea, provide a better vantage point to see the colors.....w...

Surrounded by Wood Yep it’s coming, just as the squirrels are gathering their nuts, I’m busy bringing in this seasons winter firewood, to be ready for the long drawls of snow that will soon be gracing the land. So the other day found me out in the woods….hmmm, doesn’t about everyday find me out in the woods? Well so be it, there I was cutting up some leftovers on a part of section that had some blow-down and being around 4:00 or so, a rock wall grabbed my attenti...

"At Pivot Point of Horizontal and Vertical" --by RusticWoodArt

10-04-2007 03:59 PM by frank | 5 comments »

At Pivot Point of Horizontal and Vertical —-have you yet wondered what is at the point of pivot here, where I tilt my saw from horizontal in a continuous downward motion to reach a place of vertical cut? I must confess that the terms here ‘horizontal’ and ‘vertical’ can lead to many understandings, so I am going to try and narrow down what I am talking about here. This will lead me out again, today and over the weekend to shoot some more photo’s so th...

Going from Horizontal to Vertical in Freehand ....so here we go again, best grab your safety glasses, mickey mouse ears and put your chaps on, as we journey outside into the wonder-full world of workin’ with wood…. Safety is: 1) eye protection2) ear protection3) leg and groin protection....and….if we were entering the woods to take some trees down…. 4) head protection! Safety is; having a good mental disposition….or right mindset! Safety is unde...
