"Kokedera Temples in the Woods" --by RusticWoodArt

10-21-2007 05:40 PM by frank | 3 comments »

Kokedera Temples in the Woods And so while on my way to work yesterday morning, I decided to do a drop off from the mainframe of time and go for a short walkabout. Haha,....I really have to laugh at myself now in what I just said, since who ever heard of a ‘short’ walkabout? I sometimes read the stories of Aborigines and how the young men start this feat while yet young ….and will often go for months at a time. Anyways getting back to my story and trying to not be dist...

"Live in the woods....Wood Art" --by RusticWoodArt

10-20-2007 04:06 PM by frank | 2 comments »

Live in the woods….Wood Art Well here we go….while out last Saturday working in the woods, I happened to be down in a place that does not get into my normal forest travels. I was down in this area last fall cutting trees for this winter’s burning and happened to be down here not long ago looking at some trees that had recently fallen, due to storm winds. Last Saturday was spent cleaning those trees up and while on a break that morning, I decided to waunder around. Foun...

"Dis-Membered Barkin' on a Pine Slab" --by RusticWoodArt

10-19-2007 02:15 PM by frank | 7 comments »

Dis-Membered Barkin’ on a Pine Slab ....ended my day the other evening removing some more bark from a pine slab I’m trying to get dried out, in the faster then usual manner since this is one I want to start workin’ on around January. Much of my time spent outside now is divided between cutting new trees for next year, cutting slabs for future furniture and ‘wood art’ that has to be processed for drying a year to two years down the road. While then finding the ...

Project - Lever-Action Boxes #1: Committing Myself

10-17-2007 12:14 PM by Dekker | 3 comments »

Well, I’ve finally gone and done it. After blogging about books on boxes , I got the itch to make some boxes! I haven’t delved extensively into boxes, and it has been ages, so it’s like starting new again. My wife makes jewellery that she sells online and at craft shows. She has a show sometime in late October, and another in early November, and I thought it would be a great idea to offer some jewellery boxes next to the jewellery. I therefore have a motivational deadline...

"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…. ...
