My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1: Beginning this Blog

1546 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

I recently was referred to this site by Steve Good, who has a wonderful, comprehensive scroll saw forum and blog page. Although I have been doing woodworking for almost fifteen years, I have finally reached a point in my life where I am able to make it the main focus of my activities. Since my life revolves around my woodworking and business, I believe that this blog will reflect that very clearly, although it will also be somewhat personal. But I think that woodworking is very personal any...

"Colors of a Walkabout" --by RusticWoodArt

2528 days ago by frank | 5 comments »

Colors of a Walkabout ....okay, lets take some time out today,and get away,into the forest of green wooden inlay…. So today we are going to slip away from chainsaws and slabbin’ at wood, where in order to stay sharp, I’ve decided to go on a ‘walkabout’. Grab your hiking boots and we’ll pick up a stout walking stick along the way, leave your cares back at my doorstep, while we pass the time of day with the beauty of wood. Greenest of greens overwhel...

Roubo Workbench #10: One Man's Trash...

1546 days ago by Eric | 12 comments »

I went to the lumberyard today to check out the wood for my bench. For those who didn’t read my previous post(s), this is lumber that has been rejected by the timber export company for reasons unknown. Well today I learned that part of the reason the lumber is rejected is because it needs to be straight, knot-free, etc. the entire length of the board. When it’s not, the whole board is rejected (even though some of it might still be beautiful wood!). The manager of the yard had ...

"Savage Semblance of Colors" --by RusticWoodArt

2598 days ago by frank | 8 comments »

Savage Semblance of Colors ....and for from where-all comes beauty, as i am extolled amongst the sweetened background of your desire, while coming forth into the arena of eye as i, so that in this place of savage semblance of colors i give thanks…. And so I thought I would take a lazy morning stroll down the paths of close to home today, before I enter into the toiling of be-grimed striving to make work a place of play. So the invitations have now been sent out, for any and all t...

RusticallyFlared-AsianInspiration—-a study in the cross cultural texture of ‘wood art’. ....so how proud are you of your underside? I still remember the time I was in a well known and famous gallery owner’s showroom over in the upstate region of … ...., looking at some of the furniture on display. Well next thing I know as I’m down on my hands and knees is a loud display of noise as this person let me know that I was on the verge of being aske...

"Kokedera Temples in the Woods" --by RusticWoodArt

2502 days ago by frank | 3 comments »

Kokedera Temples in the Woods And so while on my way to work yesterday morning, I decided to do a drop off from the mainframe of time and go for a short walkabout. Haha,....I really have to laugh at myself now in what I just said, since who ever heard of a ‘short’ walkabout? I sometimes read the stories of Aborigines and how the young men start this feat while yet young ….and will often go for months at a time. Anyways getting back to my story and trying to not be dist...

random #1: Walnut Wood - I just need to know...

2009 days ago by Gary Fixler | 19 comments »

Does anyone else – when working with black walnut – think it smells delicious? I just want to eat it whenever I’m cutting it. I was recently cutting out a ball blank from a glue-up of walnut, maple, and wenge, the latter two of which don’t really have a smell when cut. But the walnut! My dull band saw blade was more burning than cutting, and I was just about drooling all over the table. It smelled like warm cinnamon chocolate bread pudding. I almost ran to the bakery i...

"Teller of Life’ as I Now Live Wood" --by RusticWoodArt #6: "Open Slathers of...."

2665 days ago by frank | 2 comments »

Open Slathers of…. ....these moments of time, are but the beginning of my processed self, where i have long ago given up the shape of being right, as i am now extolled into the more of this thing called oneness…. —-and where does my oneness spring from, if not from the heart of one who has all-ready made a master’s plan, just as this one i came to know as ‘old timer’, has also exposed my heart of longing to be an artist of some sorts…. —...

"Folk-Wood-Tales" --by RusticWoodArt

2563 days ago by frank | 7 comments »

Folk-Wood-Tales ....deserted and hard pressed, peeled back from weathered exposure, i often think back to younger days, when those that passed me by gave thanks…. —-my scar is deep that runs within my trunk, and this i received at the hands of an-other, scars and wounds are but battle purging follies, while i am left to bear a showing of what re-mains…. —-tis better that i bear my pain of shame, in the silence of these forgotten woods, since when will come tho...
