Woo Hoo, Part Deux #2: There's gold in them thar logs!

11-13-2007 07:19 AM by Douglas Bordner | 25 comments »

The story, for those unfamilar with the first entry, is that I was driving through the neighborhood. Truth be told I had the feeling there was going to be something I was going to find. Highly developed “Free-dar”. I happened upon a yard with the entire length of the sidewalk lined with quartered log sections of a massive maple tree and a sign exhorting me to take all I wanted. I was frustrated because most of the sections were massive. And when I went to toss one in the bed of th...

Workshop Principles ….taking time out, as i waundered home after the days work, is an intoxicating drink of heady ale, where those who stop and drink can soon get lost in an-other time and era….And it is in these places where I oft do stop, to taste my dreams and set them free….so I invite you to come along and lets cover some ground in these forest of trees where ones, such as I can still dwell. These were taken around 7:00 pm the other night as I was coming in from a...

Words of Heart —-today i stopped along my way to breathe, as it had been some time since i had passed here before, much was the clutter of ancient baggage i had so accumulated, till from the many aspirations of all that surrounded me; ....i grew, a heavy heart…. —-good natured and kindly objects of activity, were these favorites who came to play their wares, what did they know that i wanted none of their things, and so i closed the door for what seemed an eternity ...

"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.

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...

"Slabbin' at Wood" #3: "Slab Wood Tales" --by RusticWoodArt

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….
