The Best of 'Wood Art" #9: "Prepping the Wood" --by RusticWodArt

12-31-2007 02:25 PM by frank | 4 comments »

....furthering my ganders, as one would take on examining their progress in the principles of what it take to work the wood by hand! Some-times it does my soul best to just stop and take an inventory of what is happening here with the tools and the wood. Many are the stages of phases that go into the making of a piece of ‘wood art’, working the wood by hand, but there all-ways is the need to pay attention to the care and detail of my tools and wood. Further Notes on: ...

The Best of 'Wood Art" #8: "Expressions of Wood Milieu" --by RusticWoodArt

12-30-2007 03:40 PM by frank | 4 comments »

Expressions of Wood Milieu ....continuing on the journey here with wood ripping gusto, is soon found to be a harmony of the joys of hand to wood, only separated by the fine steel blade of my 13” 9TPI pull handsaw. No-dust collection system needed here, no-dangers of kickback, no-need to break my bank savings, no-need for ear protection, (although one would want to wear eye protection) no-wondering about the what if’s when certain thoughts cross the mind of the male populatio...

"Wood Weathered Friends" --by RusticWoodArt

12-26-2007 03:19 PM by frank | 6 comments »

Wood Weathered Friends is my way of giving thanks, and drinking deeply from the circumstances of life that surround me. Where I to walk into a room, beauty would fade back into shadows of after-space….but, upon my passing through and beyond, beauty is able to re-focus and splay her-self as an example of the fine Lady she is. Of all the tales of wood that I have learned, there is no-thing that compares with the first taste of abundant life that springs forth, in that ...

The Best of 'Wood Art" #6: "Defining Design in Wood" --by RusticWoodArt

12-15-2007 02:32 PM by frank | 6 comments »

Defining Design in Wood ....and so I continue finding the numbers that can be assembled out of 2’‘x4’‘x96’’, or as I have now come to see as (2) re-sawed wood pieces of 1’‘x4’‘x96’’.... Designs are the dreams I write//draw on paper, after imagination has come back, from where she flies in the lofty clouded skies of inspiration. No-idea of where this one was going, when I started this one….just let my hands go ...

"Teller of Life’ as I Now Live Wood" --by RusticWoodArt #8: "Stories of Wood That Yearn"

12-14-2007 02:25 PM by frank | 2 comments »

Stories of Wood That Yearn ”....tis in the sliding of the barn door’s opening, that the eye of man meets those other’s, who have heard the news, that often what is sold as wood, be-comes the more of what is worked as art....” Often now the mornings are getting colder and so I find myself coming out here earlier to start the fire in the belly of my beast, as I prepare the tools that the ‘old timer’ will be using today. Tools come in many forms shapes a...

Wedding Champagne Flutes #2: Planning done - preparation begins

12-05-2007 07:35 PM by mike | 5 comments »

Well it’s been almost four weeks since I started this project – my how time flies. The champagne flutes all 60 of them arrived from Craft Supplies USA about 2 weeks ago and have since been shipped to Ken at Kallenshaan Woods for laser etching. Ken is shipping a couple of etched flutes back and as soon as they arrive I will post pictures in my next blog entry. I selected Ron Trout (TreeBones on this site) to supply the turning lumber. We settled on walnut and a very nice tiger ...

Inspiring Young Woodworkers #1: A Special Gift from Charles Neil

11-26-2007 09:51 PM by David | 15 comments »

Click for Large Format Movie I just posted this on my woodworking blog and felt it was something important to share with my fellow Lumberjocks. I am sure many of us can remember middle school and high school woodshop. It is a sad state of affairs that industrial arts are being dropped due to budget constraints. It is up to each of us to help pass on the joy and traditions of woodworking. Those of you that have followed any of my entries on, The Folding Rule Podcast or...

Tool cabinet #4: Getting it all together

11-26-2007 09:14 PM by CutNRun | 7 comments »

I was able to spend some time in the shop over the holiday and finished getting the tool cabinet together. The drawer fronts are mounted as is the hardware. All glides are installed and the trays mounted in the cabinet section. Next will be taking everything apart, sanding, and finishing. I plan to locate some drawer liner material to put in the bottom of the drawings.

Christmas Projects #1: Started my Christmas projects.

11-22-2007 07:08 AM by Sgt_Lobo | 1 comment »

Well, as I said in last night’s blog, today I started 3 projects that I need to finish in time to send off before Christmas. So I guess my insomnia paid off though because I was able to draw up my plans, measure and mark all my wood last night which made cutting today go allot quicker. So, today between baking pies and pumpkin bread, I managed to cut all my pieces to length, rip them to width, and miter the ends. Not bad for a days work. Heres some pics/teasers… 1st pic...
