Wooded Mixed Quantum Anomalies
....i am as a sliver ridding on the finger of your wind,
come blow the expression of your breath across my face,
till in the utterance of an all knowing mind,
there remains that never un-changing desire of limitless grace….
—-can this rogue of a past thought that waited to captivate,
be any movement of great consequence in the dilemma of need,
since by your giving breath as life-givin’ acutilobate,
i am extolling the virtues of finding my place to exceed….
—-come forth now my gretchen of greed in wanton zest,
and i will draw your passions upon an-other’s breast,
till in this light of early morning steamy fogged up picturesque of best,
there remains the waiting of places i can pass on by in staying abreast….
....wooded mixed quantum anomalies,
where having escaped from the forest of my dreams,
i awakened from my dream under your shadow of canopies,
where i pressed on into the starry night of much more wind swept streams….
And so Saturday I was play around with one of my chain saws….by playing around I mean I was trying out different angles on a saw chain and adjusting the degrees of angle for ‘ripping’. Ripping degrees that I use fall between 2-10 degrees, while I usually follow a rule of thumb law that states, lesser for softwood and greater for hardwood.
....while I will post some more pictures often of different wood and different cuts, I thought I would start out with this one, which I call a ‘sliver’. This one was cut off a larger piece which I was truing up….
....all these photos are of spalted maple which I had left outside over period of about four years in the seasons of elements,....
....these following photos are spalted maple which I have brought inside the barn, stickered and stacked and after drying will be used for the testing finishes to be used on slabs and table tops and then I will sell these as ‘wood art’....
....I use everything and every piece of wood eventually knows that they will reside in some loving home….
....I ripped these pieces of wood with a 6 degree saw angle….
....I do believe that spalted maple is one of the most beautifully figured woods to be found, and I make all my own spalted wood, which as I have mentioned before can take up to about three to four years and then for slabs and tops can take another year of drying time….what do you see….
”....all the trees in my forest, are for everlasting benefit, of many like minded souls, who have come to enjoy the presence of wood….”
