Legs of Beauty
....and so the progress goes on,
in the continuing saga of this one,
who is coming forth from the heart of the tree,
and doing as befits her ‘being’ of becoming set free….
—-having legs of beauty as formed from within,
she soon was noticed as having likened wood skin,
till from the shapely posture of her bijou stance,
i knew their was more here then meets first glance….
—-what i saw in her legs was sweetness of desire,
and from this passion my heart was soon on fire,
my drawknife soon took to shaving those wood figured grains,
where wood was soon felt to be supporting all that reigns….
Having some time Tuesday evening I was able to end the day out in the shop, by starting to rough out the shape of the table legs. Using the drawknife and 1’’ timber chisel, I soon set to task at removing some of the oak wood. Letting the grain of the wood guide me here, I was after a time, soon able to arrive at some rough shape. Last evening I was able to return and get one more leg roughed out, now only one more to do which I hope to complete tonight.
