@ossobuco,
I am fine, Osso. My life is in turmoil and my finances have been ravaged, but I have a plan for survival. How are you? You're looking good.

@gustavratzenhofer,
I'm glad you have a plan for survival, Gus.
And sorry to hear you've had a rough time.



But I really feel I should be talking about woodworking here.
Beautiful work, Stugotz
I'm very impressed.

@Stugotz,
I think Stugotz understands us, poor fellow.

You know we remain interested in woodworkng and are crazed fools otherwise.

Gus is worse.

@ossobuco,
Speaking of woodworking, I've run across a few books lately with woodcuts that made emotional sense with the texts, or academic sense with the texts.

Anyone like woodcuts?

@gustavratzenhofer,
Gus, only a fool would seek to duplicate art, the true artist creates from within time after time.

I can post many links to the websites if you wish, and perhaps include your's in the group.

@msolga,
I'm reading Elizabeth Hamilton's Mythology and needing a break. Dense and good book, can't figure out who the illustrations /cuts are by sans googleing.

Reading something else while I rest from data.

Favorite book for quite a while, The Edge of the Storm by Agustin Yanez, illustrations by Julio Prieto, beefy type woodcuts, fitting for the book.

You think wood cuts are not wood working?

Tell us why you think that.

@Stugotz,
Meantime there's trouble afoot, as farmer is cutting himself off from a2k for work ethic reasons.

This is hard for me to believe, not that he has ethics, which I'm sure he has, but that he has to cut off from posting here.

http://able2know.org/topic/177192-1#post-4818779

He is a2k beloved, not to get mushy, since I still don't believe it.

Well I had the time to turn another art piece today, and I just love it.
it is made from a piece of natural Brown Malee Burl which I imported from Tasmania. I still have to sand it, and I am going to go into the desert to find a root system from a host tree/plant as a pedestal for it to sit on.

I call this piece, Ripples Of Time
I really like this piece, and will take better pics of it when i am done with the root system pedastal.

I have decided to incorporate a sandstone sphere in the center of this piece representing the universe. I will make a unique pedastal for it to sit on in the center.

here is an example of what it may look like

Well here is the sanstone sphere I was referring to, and I had a guy I just met today make it for me while I waited.

I wanted something that looked like the planet Jupiter to me and this is what I came up with

@ossobuco,
Well, that sounds snotty - and I'm not a woodworker, but I went to a lot of studios in my area of the northwest.

We have a person, stugotz, who wants anointment aggressively. Not for me to judge.

I've liked what I've seen, as posted, but don't know.
