Shaker Styling With Wood and....
….shaker styling pine,
wood history wrote in knots,
wedding gift for friend….
….ah the peace that comes from workin’ the wood,
and knowing that there is some-thing much bigger then i-thing,
when it all comes down to what goes on in a wood-workers life,
the simple works of ‘wood art’ transpire the need to acquire more,....
….i have sat at the edge of the world where the many pass on by,
till what was giv-in’ back was less talk-in’ with words of mouth,
and the lesson i learned is that a wood-workers hands are the pen of writing,
for an artist of wood there is only the matter of writing words in grains of wood….
Simple tools and simple wood, but what the hands do, is what workin’ the wood is all about….
....this piece of pine is about 6 years old and has been sitting in my barn and waiting….
....and waiting. Till one day recently it spoke out to me and said, ....’’ Frank I’m the one ’’.... I am all-ready getting-feed back that this friends soon to be wife is all excited about this bench, and I didn’t even know she liked Shaker style, which only goes on to prove my point that the wood all-ready knows it all….
....and then at the end of the day I find its easier to think in black and white….
....next there is still some more tweaking of the wood and a yet to be decided finish to be used on this one.
— ”….work smart, work safe, and live, to work the wood….”
