Boss

Creating custom woodworking pieces becomes art when I find passion behind a piece. My son got a new truck recently and like most young men, this became his pride and joy. My wife and I have often joked with him that he was going to wash the paint right off. For Christmas, I wanted to make him something special. I took a picture of his truck with my phone one evening while he was over for dinner and used this photograph to create a 3D woodworking picture of his truck. I wanted the truck to...

Small Projects #12: Wonderbread Pipe

02-06-2020 10:07 PM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

Trying to get creative with a new prototype pipe: Started with a chunk of 5/4 jatoba, cut square, 4” long. The 5/8”-7/16” stepped bowl and 3/16” stem were drilled to produce a viable pipe blank. I make these blanks a half dozen at a time, each winds up as a unique ‘art pipe’. This set of blanks was oriented so that the sides are quartersawn, crown up. I drilled the blank randomly with both a 3/16” and 1/8” bit, each about 1/4” deep....

Home on the Hill Intarsia Woodworking Home on the HillCreating custom intarsia woodworking often finds its best design from a story.One stormy day in April, not very different than any other day, tragedy struck in Alabama. My father was out for the morning working as usual. He decided to come home early because there were some reports that bad weather was coming. He could not have gotten home at any better of a time. As he pulled into the driveway, he had just enough time to find his w...

Western Cross - Intarsia Woodworking

02-22-2013 01:27 PM by Chris Mobley | 1 comment »

The makings of this western cross happened by complete accident, but what a great gift it made for my wife. My daughter got a new computer aided design program. She was playing with it to learn all of the new things she could do and as she was playing she drew the design for this cross. I came to see her in her office and she was showing me her new program and some of the neat things that it could do when I noticed her drawing. I immediately thought of how great this would be to do in ...

Longhorn Stampede - Intarsia Woodworking

03-25-2013 03:13 PM by Chris Mobley | 1 comment »

I have just finished a new project that I am very excited about titled Longhorn Stampede. One of my favorite artist is Roberta Wesley. I often draw inspiration from her works. She has done a painting called “Day of the Horns” that I am very fond of, and this work inspired me to do a piece that I call Longhorn Stampede. In Roberta’s painting, the thing that draws me to it the most is the fact that the longhorn cattle seem to be running right towards you. To view Roberta Wesley’s wo...

Wooden Ageless Piquancy ....who lights the fire, that burns from within, to without, of yonder tree….? ——and so it ‘just is’, that on this morning of grace-full and many intended beginnings, that the silence of my hearts breath is heard among the awakening of dawn, till from out of the past i am encouraged to withhold from wood no-longer…. —-now i know that some would say ‘the way of wood’ is lost from view, but i will continue to...

"Teller of Life’ as I Now Live Wood" --by RusticWoodArt #7: Wood Scripts From Dark Wood

06-05-2007 02:04 PM by frank | 1 comment »

Wood Scripts From Dark Wood: —-an introduction; ....as a creative writer of the words of woods, i am often enamored by any copy of my species, who would stop and sit awhile, to so share in the bliss of what has been written. Can I tell a story from the hearth of the forest, while the embers of the charcoaled goods are still steaming forth with frosted screeching, as rustic wood spirits sit around the galactic stones, warming their hands to the anticipation of another fire breathed...

"Evergreens of Ages Now" --by RusticWoodArt

Evergreens of Ages Now ....and as i stood gazing into the heavens, i was re-minded of some whisperings that had once passed before, “is not the right to critique with gawker’s of leavens, what keeps one from entering through the door”.... —-while in the midst of hearing cloudy swirls, goes my thought-full yesterday’s of waundering walkabouts, and to my wondering eye in need of joy-full sounding purls, comes the awakened dreams within of knowing my inner-clo...

Wood Stories of a Forgotten Time ....and as i was gazing into your wooden whispery depth, i found that i became as one translated to an-other epoch, where time had slowed down to that of one continual length, while all around there was the hearing of seeing one called enoch…. —-come walk my way and i shall be a story for you to tell, tis not this sound you hear the wind brushing past your leaves, and who is there to shake your branch if not by golden fire brewed spell, till ...
