"Slabbin' at Wood" #5: "Homelite 26 LCS" --by RusticWoodArt

09-28-2007 02:56 PM by frank | 5 comments »

Homelite 26 LCS I thought I would post an-other one of my collected chainsaws here from the bygone days of ‘golden oldies’.... ....and when one really gets to studying these ‘beasts’, one can also much more appreciate where we are today, with chainsaws in terms of safety, (don’t you just love the safety word) weight, horsepower and ease of the cut in the wood…. ....the Homelite 26 LCS was introduced in 1951 and discontinued in 1953…. ...

A Northern Version of YardWork And so up here in the land of snow, I was in need of doing some yardwork here recently and then more of….sometimes daily. So I thought I would post my version, of what that means for one such as I, who live’s in the north country come winter. So if you have your boots on and if you will please grab a shovel, then let us proceed for this mornings clean-up…. ....digging out my path to the shop has become a daily thing for me as I shovel...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #23: WoolGathering I Go

08-13-2008 02:12 AM by frank | 10 comments »

WoolGathering I Go ....not all who walk know where they are going,not all who wonder know how to use their mind,not all who waunder are lost in the woods of their choice,but then who but a poet can woolgather on paper just as in the forest…. These are the memories I create, ....of waunderings out here in the woods, ....that encompass me on all sides of my environmental up-bringing, ....where often the one doing the dreaming, .....awakens to find that all is more then a dream.̵...

found wood #13: wood gloat: superior grade alder scraps

08-13-2009 09:43 AM by Gary Fixler | 12 comments »

I can’t believe it’s been just over 3 weeks already since I picked this stuff up. This year is cruising past me. I saw an ad one morning – only a few minutes old – for a very large pile of scrap wood, mostly superior-grade alder, but with a mix of some other things in there, like plywood, and walnut. I wrestled internally for a bit. Do I really need more wood? The answer, it turned out, was yes. I wrote, mentioned I was a budding woodworker, and would love to find uses...

Waste of Time and Wood Today

06-13-2014 07:57 PM by Dave Rutan | 10 comments »

I think I need a new blade for my table saw. At least a blade is cheaper than buying a jointer. I had this idea that I wanted to start making a project today and I didn’t want to buy the wood. So I rummaged through some out of the way spots in my workshop and came up with two identical drawer fronts. The wood I need for the project needs to be 12 inches across and these two 8 inch drawer fronts were my best bet. Unfortunately, I’d have to glue them together edgewise. No probl...

"The Wild of the Woods" --by RusticWoodArt

The Wild of the Woods ….and so i walk the footsteps of those who precede my thinking, these are the spirit’s of rustic woodlands as found herein, and it is they who speak in an un-known tongue from the forest of living, a language that not many today have the time to learn away from the clatter…. —-clatter comes in many shapes and forms, but the duty of clatter is all-ways the same, and that is to distract one from the beauty of silence, needless to say that clat...
