“The love of wood as seen with the eye, felt with the heart and touched by the hand is the passion of dreamers, who have lived in the chaotic beauty of the forests, only to pass on to future generations this love.” —-flp


Have you ever given much thought to the great gift you have, in that you can take a piece of wood and create a work that goes on beyond the scope of our time and bears witness to the fact that you are the author of its design? Good or bad, you have marked a place in the mind of any who pass by and look upon your creation.

This is my first post here and so I just want to say hi to all and thanks for the opportunity of being able to use what so many have made possible.

....great gift!
Thanks Mike for the compliment and I believe that we are all ‘great gifts’. Great gifts come in all sizes and shapes just waiting to be unlocked and set free to grace the minds of others. Walter Savage Landor in writing a poem called, On Catullus, has said: “Such stains they are—-as when a Grace Sprinkles another’s laughing face With nectar, and runs on.”

Gracrfull spirits we are, as when I look into the face of another and I see that face light up and laugh to the sound of his dancing hands. It is especially ‘very good’ when I see those hands start to dance with ‘wood’.
