Tabitha Cum....a descriptive journey —-and so you made your incision in metre,out there in the octaves of wooded living space,you waited till one such as i came walking by,and in your patience of never losing hope, ....” i stopped and said, little girl arise….” —-your patience was in the ages of eons,where golden haired angels of filamentous wispy inspired desire,cater to the one’s of us who walk with eyes in the sky,never having a reason beyond the one you gave, ....” i stopped a...
Was running out of daylight to take pictures in, so I had to finish quick… here’s the pieces: and here's the project
To date, the most time I’ve spent at the lathe was 3 hours – and that was in a small classroom setting practing beads and coves – 1/2 the time playing and getting a feel for the tools, and the rest of the time trying to make deliberate shapes – while contantly dealing with catches. Today, I began working on my wood joinery/garden project. 1 hour of planning and cutting, 4 hours straight at the lathe! Also to date, the longest things I’ve turned came in around ...
It’s funny how this contest challenges you to think about wood in different ways. At first you think of how to replace nails with dowels or dovetails… then as designs get too complex, the mind broadens and figures out how to strip away the clutter and simplify the design or the plan. (I’ve always been good with simplification – resume’ as it were) It finally ocurred to me, just tonight, that the baskets my sister made (we have two, a wine basket and a stair ba...
Gone Waundering ....gone waundering! gone waundering and so i go, out in the outback’s of my mind, far from the shore’s of hominal demesne…. —-gone waundering where the paths of other’s have not trod, while the winds of government’s blow past my head, i catch the currents of ancient’s past, and watch as these gladly welcome me back…. —-gone waundering with a golden field of dreams, when to my awakened surprise i saw the reality, h...
Dedicated Hummock’s That Inspire ....from where comes this now my way of having a working mode, when before this place i call home, there starts the un-ravel in front of my eye, and so i am lost within the beauty of a moment’s twinkle of ‘wood art’.... —-why even now the tears cascade down my eyes, as i am in-riched by this wonderous panorama that opens up, having no-place to go in this game of hide and seek, i eat bount-i-fully of the feast that has been s...
Blogging Be-tween Other Office Paper-Work Yes this is how my morning has filled up, while sitting here at my desk, amongst this stacked pile of what must be done with paperwork. This is not what brings out the best in me at i-of-eye, but then again with patience and giving of thanks….so I will overcome! Notes to myself, also include: —-writing notes on what is to be done around here at the farm….—-writing notes and calling about site work, energy codes, building ...
Inveterate Punning of Wood Creations ….clearly i have be-come now, of some consequence in this matter, which has issued forth from me, called by my right-full name of ‘wood movement’.... —-and were it not so, would not i be in-debited, to the common fusing of ill timed vagrant slobbering’s, of the many who would so seek to contain me after their way…. —-i am as limitless as the stars in the heavens, who all-ready knowing their movement in ti...
Templates and Jigs Whenever we do a project that has the potential to be built again, or if the design is somewhat difficult, we’ll spend the time to build a jig. This is a process that pays back big dividends, and has been practiced for hundreds of years. In the first instance, it makes sense to speed up the process of duplicating it. This prevents you from having to record all the dimensions and engineering that went into the piece. A very big time saver. In the second ...
Running With Imagination ....running with imagination is eating the opportunities of all that is before me! Come take a walk with me today….this morning down the corridors of mind, where the the dreams of opportunity are weighed on the scales of infinite grace, across from limited fate and imagination tips the scales in favor of mercy triumphing over judgment. ....gaze you, to stare down this pathway of what shall yet be, as i am giving in to the art of all that is ‘very ...
