Flat surfaces can be rough on the toosh. Try carving a butt impression in your seat and feel the difference! It’s like the wood is cuddling with your cheeks. See how to get this done in this video! If the video doesn’t appear, CLICK HERE
Evergreens of Ages Now ....and as i stood gazing into the heavens, i was re-minded of some whisperings that had once passed before, “is not the right to critique with gawker’s of leavens, what keeps one from entering through the door”.... —-while in the midst of hearing cloudy swirls, goes my thought-full yesterday’s of waundering walkabouts, and to my wondering eye in need of joy-full sounding purls, comes the awakened dreams within of knowing my inner-clo...
Beholder of Art ....art-full to be-hold, i gather what surrounds me, adroit nature i am….—by flp And so I was sitting this morning looking over some photos I had taken recently outside and out of my landscape of framework, came these pictures speaking to me. Imagination is a wonder-full gift, and when coupled with writing, the words of the soul can be heard, which has caused me to spend a rich time here at my desk with pencil and paper, writing out note-full stories for futu...

You folks helped me to ID this as probably a California Bay Laurel, blown down a pretty strong wind storm a week ago. I’m still going to research it, but for now, it needed to be sealed up against the checking that had already begun. I wanted some good pics of the cross sections before they get their coat of sealer. I have 2 gallons of Anchorseal in shipment now from the source, and I’m wondering if I should have gotten the 5gal bucket. Meanwhile, last week I picked up 2 quarts of...
So around here there are numerous old stumps that look old and weathered, had one on the corner of my property so I cut it up for turning stock. It was very pitchy and sticky and def. not ideal wood for much. but after making a small dish from a nice swirly root clump I noticed the fine intricate grain and subtle orange translucence. So I made several small lampshade prototypes. Pitch bled out of the wood with warmer bulbs obviously. But I am about to start a kickstarter.com project involv...
Well for a while now my wife has been really wanting a hall table to put ummmm, well hallway stuff on. I have for some reason been really struggling with the design. At first she wanted it to have a shelf on the bottom to hold other odds-n-ends. After playing around with it and throwing wood here and there, it was just not going to work out. The bottom shelf would have been a very tiny 6” deep. What can I say though, I didn’t give up trying to build it. After I got some of the leg...

Wood Stories of a Forgotten Time ....and as i was gazing into your wooden whispery depth, i found that i became as one translated to an-other epoch, where time had slowed down to that of one continual length, while all around there was the hearing of seeing one called enoch…. —-come walk my way and i shall be a story for you to tell, tis not this sound you hear the wind brushing past your leaves, and who is there to shake your branch if not by golden fire brewed spell, till ...
Written In and By Wood ....and so I capped the ending of last evening with a short walk in the woods, short walking is not like waundering and means I was only gone for about two hours, but then that also includes about an hour of just sitting in silence and hearing what the forest had to say. On the subject of ‘waundering’ let me just add, that all who waunder are not lost, but then some also ‘waunder’ as having slipped the veil….explanation, well maybe in an...
