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...

"Journeys into the Joints of Joineries" by RusticWoodArt #1: "Wood Joinery"

06-08-2007 02:11 PM by frank | 11 comments »

Wood Joinery ....as told by one who was a misfit all his-elfin-self, till one day while out walking in the forest of dark woods gathering branch wood, he ran into the spirit of an ‘old timer’ who saw into the recesses of this one’s heart, and from that day forth i have never left the deep woods of wood joinery…. Having an imagination that is vivid and livid with complete color scale has at times been both a curse and a blessing, till one day getting tired of shif...

09-24-2007 02:16 PM by frank | 12 comments »

Slab Wood Tales ....in the working of the wood, the stories of those who came before me, are revealed as enlightened nuggets of wisdom, where ‘ancient ones’ give thanks by offering to tell me their tales…. So today I thought I would travel some ground….or is that lay some ground work here and post some pictures. I’m going to throw in a plug here and say thanks to Zooomr for all their work that they have done, and have made available to all. Using this site ...

Church pews project #2: ready for stripping

01-04-2013 04:30 PM by inchanga | 4 comments »

The pews have now been broken down ready to be taken to the stripping facility. Theoretically the chemicals should enhance the natural appearance of the wood but i have everything crossed just in case things don’t turn out quite as expected. I will know by the end of next week just how much usable timber I have.

Time to make some changes to the shop. #11: My Name is Angie and I am a Wood Hoarder... Or am I???

10-26-2014 07:49 PM by AngieO | 23 comments »

Hello…. my name is Angie and I am a wood hoarder. Wait… there may be some truth to that. But what is a wood hoarder really? Is it storing piles of wood like this….? Or this?

And instead of moving said “stuff”... it ended up sitting in front of my ...

Living Within the Shadow of Crazy Fire ....tread softly on the mind of a man inspired by imagination, since who can afford to play the devil’s advocate, when those who are caught between the planes of time, know no-world to hold them down in audiences of respected places…. ....and then i remembered an-other time where…. —-i also was seemingly caught out there in a fools paradise, begging for bread and wages from those other’s dictates, those ones who...
