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...
I received this post today from a web site the I get periodic mail from. Greetings all,I am excited to announce the latest news concerning the addition of Wood Whisperer project plans to the awlfreeplans site. As you will notice upon visiting the site, I have added a “Wood Whisperer Plans” page that will contain various plans associated with the video pod cast counter part.

Cabin Renovation and Progress ....and so I continue on today with some shots of an outside//inside wood project, that has been eating up some of my time. Time delays….running with the after-effects of projected numbers on sheets of paper, that can never catch up to the reality of why is this not done….yet! I am not interested in excuses for delay;I am interested only in a thing done.—-Jawaharial Hehru So put some warm clothes on….hope you remembered to brin...
Finches and Forests of Wood ....so in a great big world inside my forest of wood, where some folks have not enough time in their hands, and other’s have too much time to be of any use for common good, the thought flashed through my head this morning concerning finches.... forest of wood,hands,good,finches.... Who feeds the finches….?—-and do you even care? I will let the images speak for themselves….since the selves-of-them speak images…. ....a...

My Ghost of a Past ....and so yes, for any and all that have been reading here and are waiting for more on the series “Journeys into the Joints of Wood Joineries” ....these articles, will be forthcoming from time to time. I am thinking of how to approach this subject, however I am no expert and not much of a technical writer and really dis-like writing on subjects that press me into the thinking confines of a box…. There was a time when I thought and lived in a box, I rec...

Early this month, in the mood for some more resawing, I cut up another of the logs into blanks around the insane amount of checking. I’ve probably heard every trick now to keeping wood from splitting – freezing, microwaving, alcohol dipping, Anchorseal, storing in a bag of shavings after turning, filling cracks with coffee grounds or wood dust and thin CA glue – I’ve tried many of ...
More Safety, Chainsaw….Broadax Well that’s it….LOL ....I’m not able to blog my story I had thought to put in here this morning, since I was looking through the forums and I saw a question asked about; “If you where a hand plane?”! This got my mind to turning and so where I was going to go with “Slabbin’ at Wood” is out the door for today. Also let me say that I need to go and set up some photo jigs, so that I can also take some pi...
