Custom woodworking and art
Step 1: plant seed
Step 2: Add water and sun wait at least 30 years. If uncut could live to 500 years and older.
Step 3: Turn lumber into structural element in custom home. Recognize that you are contributing to the deforestation of the earth.
Step 4: Don’t let the waste turn into more waste by putting it in a landfill. Again recognize that your hands have had a part in taking resources from the earth.
Step 5: Do something with it. Now. Build with passion,art and respect to the fact we are all using natural resources some of us more than others. Being a homebuilder and woodworker I have been responsible for many a tree’s end and take that responsibility seriously.
Step 6: Drink a nice glass of port to celebrate. Sit down and feel the raw power of the tree. It still exists not the same as it was but hopefully still beautiful.
A few minutes ago every tree was excited, bowing to the roaring storm, waving, swirling, tossing their branches in glorious enthusiasm like worship. But though to the outer ear these trees are now silent, their songs never cease.
