In-DwelleR-EVIL Dis-Ease Follows Me ….i have all-ways been,this dis-ease that eats in-side,gnaws be-low my bark….—by flp ——————————————————————————————————————————————————...
....can I speak for WoodArt? ....creatures of the wood,invading darkness nests light,winged nascent being….—by flp ———————————————————————————————————————————————————...
The Revelation of Wood ....some folks would say we are known by the company we keep,i prefer to say that the company i keep is what’s penned on paper,and that my thoughts work them-selves out as word friends,until in the end i am gathered in the forest by my friends of wood…. ....so it might be that after i have some-day slipped the veil,that ones of few or many might start opening my books of thought,etchings of imagination’s greatest words that speak of wood drea...
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 ....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...
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 ....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 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...
