The heft and feel of a well-worn handle,
The sight of shavings that curl from a blade;
The logs in the wood pile, the sentiment of huge beams in an old-fashioned house;
The smell of fresh cut timber and the pungent fragrance of burning leaves;
The crackle of kindling and the hiss of burning logs.
Abundant to all the needs of man, how poor the world would be
Without wood.

Everard Hinrichs, quoted by Eric Sloane in A Reverence for Wood

Art for the Rest of Us

Have you ever been to one of those fancy art museums, looked at a huge splat of paint on the wall, and wondered...what the...?!!!?

If so, then this next video will probably gratify your sense of a true work of art.

Thanks go to Bill for passing this along.

Not bad for 2min and 20 secs.
Seriously, a great example of sculpture art - knowing what to remove and what to leave with beautiful result. Thanks for sharing Chuck.

It was more beautiful as a tree. He should buy a box of crayons.
