Views of Wood Expression
....you decide your view,
my minds made up i am one,
all one piece of wood….
And an-other one to account for some of my time, upon this plain of planet space, and show what I love to do this time of year. Spent some time yesterday picking up some wood slabs from around the land here, and some more just waiting to be chain-sawed at my mill.
One rock maple//sugar maple, 32’’-34’’ wide and 2-1/2’’ thick, running around 8’ long. The other ones a piece of pine, 36’’-38’’ wide and 2’’, 3-1-2’’ and 4’’ thick and this ones around 6’ long.
Now while some may think this is work….to my way of thinking and doing, this is ‘pure fun’ in the midst of cutting raw wood. Chainsaw milling is some raw horse-power, coupled with some raw wood, which in the end produces some raw live-edge slabs of wood.
I’m happy and content….and a life of working the wood, is the life for me….
’’....work smart, work safe, and live, to work the wood....’‘
