”Having Depth of Foresight….”
....having depth of foresight, and the ability of preparation, gives me the understanding that as i look ahead, to that which is seen….so shall my yet be’s, be!
Being busy as a beaver, as I gnaw on bits and pieces of ‘wood art’, which in my mind are just as clear, as when I reach out and take hold of that piece of wood in the flesh. And so I thought that I would post another project that is now in the works.
Now that spring is here, my mind is full of images of wood and the objects of art that are coming forth, and as I have said before, long term-and-short term projects are how I do it!
....here’s one that is now going into ‘the process’....
....and so we flip the piece for an-other view. I first cut this piece of branch wood a little over two years ago, and then last night working late I decided to plane this piece of cherry wood. Originally the color was starting to darken, however after sending the cherry through my planner, the aging process will now be starting over. Still have more of this one cut in longer pieces of branch wood and also there’s some of the trunk still out in the woods. The cherry tree had died and by the time I found it, the wood in some places of the trunk had already started to go punky, however I was pleased and surprised that the branch wood was for the most part still solid….
....and then here is a fast sketch up of the rustic table that will be coming forth, as I also plan on using the cherry for the backsplash area….
