Wood Workin’ Character ....and so here we arrive at this morning of a new day, just as I also hope that none of us are in mourning this morning…. ”What is my new day all about, what is your new day all about and how does this new day morning, contribute to the spirit of wood, that begs to be heard in the creation of ‘wood art’, by the hands of the woodworking community?” Wow….and that one question, (or one of many questions within a question)...
Boston Red Sox Do It Again ....yes that’s right, that team from Boston, the Boston Red Sox just could not wait to let the dust settle on past experience, but this time they have proved to the Colorado Rockies that being good isn't enough. No curse for the Boston Red Sox here: “The Red Sox won their second World Series in four seasons Sunday, edging the Colorado Rockies, 4-3, in Game 4 at Coors Field. They are the first team to win multiple championships since 2000, and with ...
Been Workin’ at Wood ....and so I have,and so I yet will be,and so I just can’t get enough,of that thing called workin’ wood! Well just some photos here of what’s going on around here at the moment, as I’m preparing for the best of winter. One of the opportunities that is presented to me up here, as I go through the seasons, is the ongoing adjustment to the need of change. And so I have been busy, and then more then a little busy at getting wood in and spli...
Wood ....all that secernate from wood, can not in trueness of nature act as wood, nor can it be called in the interest of wood, and so once again i go and think upon wood…. —-if one were to dwell with wood, one might in turn know the cellular being of wood, where being true to mine own nature i am gathered for wood, spewing forth great commentaries on the inclinations of wood…. —-look me in the face and see wood, hear my words and know i speak for wood, shake ...
Two beauties. The fellow that had these as freebies in the front yard had both sides of the sidewalk lined with logs and log sections, with more in the back. These were the extent of what I could lift, each about 80-90 lbs. Looks to me to be rock maple. The tree he took down was three foot in diameter easily, not sure how tall it was. Thank you stranger, thank you majestic tree, sorry you had to come down. I will be reverent in handling your leavings. Where is the Cyber Bowl Blank Share condu...
Art-Full Color Color that is felt, is in essence the pigments of shadowed hues brought to life, by an imaginative handwork, of the artist…. —-all creation awaits the expression of color, that the artist feels rising up within his//her makeup, and so when color explodes with strokes of warmth or coldness, there is the drawing or expelling of those who come to watch. —-color was never created to just be watched, but to be felt! —-it is in the feeling of color...
Today is a good day, and it’s only 6:00am Just this morning picked up two small boxes of leftover cherry hardwood flooring cutoffs. They are 2-6 inches long, with a couple 2-footers. I got them through my local FreeCycle organization. I had put out a “wanted” poster for leftover hardwood flooring, fully expecting to get some oak, but the first response I had was for 3/4” t&g cherry! I don’t really know what I’ll do with them yet. Absolute worst ca...
Hand Planning of In-Grained Wood ....out in this walk of life, i have tapped the shoulder of my many other’s, where were it not for dreamers of more, i should have given up my presence long of yes-ter-year’s…. —-”enter not the dwelling of caged minds seeking harmony”, was the voice that spoke to me from ages of yore, for in the duty of a soul that comes upon the dark night, there is a light for culler’s of the reapers who strive their spiritR...
This is a cry for help really. I have a house full of old knotty pine tongue & groove walls & ceilings. This house and this wood especially holds a special place in my heart. The house must be torn down, and you will all understand that I just can’t let all that wood go up in smoke. There is approximately 3700lf of 7” boards. The longest being on the ceiling and are 16’. I have taken off a couple boards and ran them through the planer to see what they would...
There has been a lot of discussion on this site and probably others about wood movement. How much does wood move What about quartersawn lumber Does flat sawn lumber move more than Quarter Sawn The US Government has created a Wood Handbook that has lots of tables but how does that become useful? I took the tables and created an Excel Spreadsheet to calculate the wood movement. But, I came across a wood Movement Calculator that you can download and run on your computer. This pro...
