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….

Saturday. Samuel Adams Octoberfest. Maple Burl friction folder by Onetree. My newly planted Texas purple sage. Which interesting enough the native americans used to brew herbal teas that treated fever and chills. Mesquite grilled hamburgers accompanied by a mesquite friction folder. Made in Texas by me. Date night. #Reposting @artisanbuilt with @instagrab_pic -- We spent most of the morning back at the Seward Plantation working on project scope and pricing. You can't help but be transported back in time when you walk on the property. Not in the way a museum full of antiquities makes you feel. But in a real life honest representation of a home,outbuildings and contents that have somehow managed to survive in gritty glory since before the civil war. The beginning of my fall garden requires a matching beer. But of course. Coffee first. Saturday evening creek therapy. How many carpenters does it take to start an old land cruiser? Apparently it's more then four...... Date night. T-bones,beets,asparagus,mac and cheese and naan bread. And of course yet another gratuitous shot of one my homemade knifes.
