Wood Movement #1: The Power Of Wood

12-24-2007 03:50 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 15 comments »

Usually we think of wood expansion tangentially which makes a board wider. Sometimes wood will just twist. We ran into an instance recently where a beam twisted so bad that it broke the metal bracket that is holding it in place. Perhaps the beam would have just expanded along it’s widt...

"Ghost's of Wood" --by RusticWoodArt

12-21-2007 02:23 PM by frank | 2 comments »

Ghost’s of Wood ....this place i am found in as part of the all, can be said to be a mis-taken identity, that preceded from what other’s called the call, before i made a case for individuality-of-entity…. —-when i was young and free as the rivulets of wind swept icy snow flakes, there was the sense of knowing all that i needed to know, and what was there to stop my dreams from entertaining my imagination, since who could stand before the presence of who i am̷...

Point of Evanesce ....two kings hedge with time, twas an open veil of rite, i transcend with wood….—by flp I’ve not had much computer time as of late for blogging, so it feels good to get a post up. We seem to be getting hammered with snow….a little much early up here this year, so I’m busy outside working the plow truck and doing clean-up around the place. When I say early up here, well not really early….it’s just that in the last couple of...

The Best of 'Wood Art" #6: "Defining Design in Wood" --by RusticWoodArt

12-15-2007 02:32 PM by frank | 6 comments »

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. No-idea of where this one was going, when I started this one….just let my hands go ...

"Teller of Life’ as I Now Live Wood" --by RusticWoodArt #8: "Stories of Wood That Yearn"

12-14-2007 02:25 PM by frank | 2 comments »

Stories of Wood That Yearn ”....tis in the sliding of the barn door’s opening, that the eye of man meets those other’s, who have heard the news, that often what is sold as wood, be-comes the more of what is worked as art....” Often now the mornings are getting colder and so I find myself coming out here earlier to start the fire in the belly of my beast, as I prepare the tools that the ‘old timer’ will be using today. Tools come in many forms shapes a...

Cabin Renovation and Progress ....and so I continue on today with some shots of an outside//inside wood project, that has been eating up some of my time. Time delays….running with the after-effects of projected numbers on sheets of paper, that can never catch up to the reality of why is this not done….yet! I am not interested in excuses for delay;I am interested only in a thing done.—-Jawaharial Hehru So put some warm clothes on….hope you remembered to brin...

"After-Effects of Snow...." --by RusticWoodArt

12-04-2007 01:40 PM by frank | 6 comments »

After-Effects of Snow…. ....what can I add that these picture do not show-tell-speak forth them-selves….? I knew this one was coming so I had already closed the place up here on the outside, in regards to waiting on an icy breath of winters best.

So after having spent the day yesterday staying ahead of the storm,...

"Wordy Wooder" by RusticWoodArt

12-01-2007 02:31 PM by frank | 7 comments »

Wordy Wooder ....being born this way with a head filled full of words, and then next came the realization that my hands were created, to give expression to the images that swirled around within, while playing the part of verbal misfit, until the day my morning opened up and I saw wood…. One ought to ask them-selves first of all, who-what-where-when and how do I fit in? Without asking these questions that same one will fall prey, to all the other’s coming along and across one...
