One Tree Woodwork

Custom woodworking and art

Road trip continues..





So while we are tossing around this theoretical road trip and we have gone this far together let’s go just a little bit further. After the pick up in Big Sur and a few days spent soaking up a little of the mojo that resides there we strap down the wood and keep trucking. Where you ask?

We will head east to Yosemite National Park and walk among one of the most impressive collection of trees in the world. We will wait till dusk until the park crowd thins out and we will just listen. For what you ask? Well I’m glad you asked I think for the sound of God for if one exists I trust it will be there. Just sitting amongst the trees, you see old trees are wise much wiser than man but one must sit quiet sometimes for hours to hear the voices but they are there just waiting to be heard. Whoa ! I know what you must be thinking I just took a theoretical trip in my mind with this crazy tree hugging/tree cutting dude that’s so full of paradoxical thinking he’s making my head hurt! I knew I shouldn’t have taken you on this mind trip…..

While we are in Yosemite Park we will go see Mariposa Grove one of the finest groves of giant sequoia in the world. We will walk by the same trees that Lincoln spent time by during the civil war when he declared Yosemite a protected state reserve. Of course we will have to visit the most famous tree in the world the Wawona tunnel tree. These are not the oldest nor the biggest redwoods but they still have the bloom of youth. No one knows how old but certainly over 700 years old.



Is this the end of this theoretical road trip……….tune in next time….same bat time……same bat channel….

Dad and I built this house in 2011 on a stone outcropping overlooking Lake Somerville. It was just published in the Luxe Life - Houston Chronicle. How you like them apples!

Happy Valentine’s! Get in where you fit in. I am home. Love - T Rowan who will be turning 9 years old tomorrow received a lego v-dub at his birthday party yesterday. Obsessed with building it from the moment he opened it. This morning my wife goes into his room at 4:45 he has his lap top open,tv on and he is midway through bag 2. He looks up with the eyes of an obsessed builder,a look she has seen many times from (me). With no help from anybody he finished the obsession.... I mean project just before noon. Never got angry or frustrated but most importantly seemed to enjoy the process. A project for 16 year olds and older 1,167 pieces later. He’s grown so much in the last year....which gives me hope maybe it’s not too late for me to grow as well. Determination and obsession can be a very productive duo just don’t forget to enjoy the ride. @lego .
#dadlife TGIF friends!! Still toying with different color combinations for the official Artisan Builders cap. This combo is pretty sweet but I’m going to have a few other color combos made to compare. What do y’all think? Cheers.
