Crazy Stuff Stumpy Thinks About #47: One man's artsy is another man's fartsy...

10-07-2014 04:47 PM by StumpyNubs | 11 comments »

A closely watched internet auction ended this morning. And by closely watched, I mean a total of five people, including myself, noticed it a few minutes before the end and checked back from time to time to see if it attracted any bids. It didn’t. Maybe it was the thousand dollar starting price that turned away prospective buyers. Or it could have been that the item was a worn out wooden hand plane with an old TV antenna stuck in the end. To be fair, it wasn’t ONLY a worn out wooden hand plane...

The Best of 'Wood Art" #12: "Found a Power Tool"

01-14-2008 03:03 PM by frank | 10 comments »

Found a Power Tool ....eeeh, eeeh, eeeh, eeeh, eeeh….was the sounding of rasping, vibrating, sonic, electronic, springboard, greeting that pulled me up from my earlier place of peace-full slumbering dream-scape, into the now of later remembering, that this is my inhabited world of 2008. So once again I hit the snooze button and told myself that just a few more minutes would not matter all that much as I felt the coldness of the early morning air, shifting around within the closure of...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #51: Sacred Places of Wood

07-31-2009 05:04 AM by frank | 10 comments »

Sacred Places of Wood ….herein lies the door to my soul,and where is the worker of wood’s soul to be found,but in the shop of their own making,far re-moved and off the beaten path of to-day’s clutter…. ….out here with the wood i can let imagination spread her wings,just as the lady called wisdom also dwells deep within these walls,enter in at this door and one enters a sacred place as time expires,just as in the forest of wood that so encircles me calling out my na...

this artisan house #3: two more for the kitchen

03-17-2007 06:11 PM by scottb | 10 comments »

Now I have a pair of tongs and a pair of spurtles right next to the stove. Why do I seem to be making my own tools in pairs? At least I think I’ll get more use out of the tongs than the (so far unused) spurtles. At least they were educational when I was learning how to turn them! I won’t stop at two tongs though. I have a pair of whisk style tongs with plastic handles that have broken. I should be able to epoxy the business end of the tool into a matching oak handle. The...

"Colors That New Hampshire and Japan Share" --by RusticWoodArt

10-06-2007 05:37 AM by frank | 10 comments »

Colors That New Hampshire and Japan Share The peak time of year Each September and October people from all over the world come to New Hampshire to see the fall foliage and take a foliage tour. Only two places in the world, New Hampshire and we’re told parts of Japan, have the unique combination of climate and topography that results in this brilliant foliage, but nowhere does the landscape, from mountains to the lakes and sea, provide a better vantage point to see the colors.....w...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #4: "Coalescing With Wood"

04-22-2008 01:58 PM by frank | 10 comments »

Coalescing With Wood ....my life is lived as a worker of wood, these stories i tell are the fruits of my dreams, where it not so i would have told you so, just as gifted stories tweak my imagination in the all that i am… —-yes i laugh at my-self for the rustic wood spirit i am, just as when i pause in the woods for silence, and often out here i can hear the ancient ones laughing also, these are as much their stories of laughter as mine…. ....stories are told among t...

"Logged Off 'Wood Art' Treasure" --by RusticWoodArt

10-08-2007 03:57 AM by frank | 10 comments »

Logged Off ‘Wood Art’ Treasure ....silent and screaming at all of now, i went far from those who tried to define me, after all since i am my own definition, why should i let other’s impose their stories upon me…. —-and over time i came to realize the need for being more, more about being about my own artistic relevance to capturing art, art is the purpose of style that co-inhabits with who i am, played out after staying up for ages inside my head…. ...

Sitting With Some Old Friends ….sitting with some old friends,and what is this need that shakes my be-ing,till from the shards of my distant past,comes the dust storm of ever present wood-chips…. ….these friends have sat patiently now,as the years pass and seasons come and go,their numbers all-ways on the increase-decrease,but with patience and expectancy they abide…. ….my friends have with-stood the ages of change,knowing that in these times-these too shall p...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #58: Warriors of The Wood

09-13-2009 09:52 AM by frank | 10 comments »

Warriors of Wood ….i have travailed the road that others could not see,and while on this road i carried pictures inside my head,where none could side-track me from my dreams of wood,just as wood and i have learned to deal with our times of age…. ….still working wood just as the wood works me in style,my character has many times been planed by the hand of wood,till even now there is the gnawing pain that pushes me faster,much to do as still counting the opportunities of project...
