I’m reposting this to let everyone know that it has been accepted into a gallery showing. I would like to encourage everyone that works in wood to consider that what we are doing is art. Too often, I think, we are relegated to the idea that we are just woodworkers, compared to someone who is “just framing in a house” (an art of it’s own). I would suggest that there are a lot of projects on this forum that should be in a gallery as well. And I would encourage anyone to join their local art society and get involved with other creative people. You will be amazed by the number of people who look at what we do and can’t fathom how we did it. It’s so great to get accolades from your fellow lumberjocks, as well as artist’s in other mediums, and I think it’s time for what we do to be fully recognized in the artistic circles.

Maybe we all make art, but yours is significantly more awesome than most.

Thanks for all of your positive comments. I love doing what I do and it’s nice that others are appreciative, as well. Again, I would encourage anyone, at any skill level, to look at what they do as art. For me, half the fun is to figure out how to do something I’ve never done before. Challenge yourself, and you may be surprised at what you can accomplish.

Have your say...
