One Tree Woodwork

Custom woodworking and art

Wall cabinet saga continues

Don’t ask where this is going because I’m not quite sure yet.




Mailing some onetree stickers off in the morning to New York City…….get a rope.

Here is a pic of where the tree landed in Pacific Grove, California. Right on, right on, right on


Also I picked up what I feel is a very interesting stick from the banks of the Llano river while I was researching some R and R. It’s a typical aromatic cedar branch worn from sun,sand and water but for some reason this specific piece with its sun bleached wood looked really good to me so I drug it back home. I had some huge pieces picked out that were really nice but since I was not in my truck it proved to be a non starter.

The stick of possibility or next years kindling only time will tell.

    That cedar branch might make a good Christmas tree… Glad you’re spreading the one tree gospel far and wide. And I’m very intrigued by what’s happening in that first picture. Curiouser and curiouser.

    Yea it would make a cool Charlie Brown christmas tree…. Yea the further I get with the cabinet the more unsure I am of the outcome which is ok by me I’m a better designer when I fly by the seat of my pants. It’s kind of dorky but I really do enjoy seeing the stickers go out and find new territory. You know those stickers are waterproof…I wonder how slick that baby seal skin is? Hmmmmmmm….excellent…

    Is that a picture of Bob Dyaln and the Band?! Nice!

    Yeah I’m also glad there are people like you spreading the good message. I am always looking for the wood that is just laying there on the ground. I have found some crazy driftwood in my time in the north western coastline of the USA.

    I’d love a sticker. Hope there are some left.

      Right on right on man. I’m spreading the word as far as I can get it, and would love to send you some stickers. Just drop your address on the “about page/free sticker page” and I will send a couple of them out. Then you can help spread the word.

Throwback pic: 13 or so years ago me and a buddy of mine spent many a weekend in the woods milling trees that I subsequently built many pieces of furniture from.Coming across this pic sent my mind on a bit of a memory drift : 
You never know what childhood memories will shape what and who you are. For me the smell of a chainsaw and the smell of fresh cut oak and the way sawdust feels on my arm always takes me back to childhood and going on weekend adventures into the woods to cut wood for the wood stove at home. The wood stove that was our only source of heat for the first few years of our life in the country after moving from the city. Looking back now I know my father would have obviously loved to have been able to have just turned a dial and had heat in our home. But as a kid I never saw the work or inconvenience of it just the adventure,the smell, the sound and the excitement of being in the woods cutting wood with my family.#onetreewoodwork #roots#smalltowntx#chainsawmill#furniturebuilder#customhomebuilder#secondgenerationbuilder#woodisgood#builditandhewillcome #husqvarna #bodark#mesquitewood #bluecollar #familymemories The American white pelican has the second biggest wingspan of any North American bird second only to the California Condor. They often collectively hunt (herd) fish in this case the abundant shad along the lake shore the very same place I throw my cast net for shad actually. In Texas this time of year we play host to so many birds migrating here for the warmer temperatures and easier non frozen fishing grounds.#getoutside#lakesomerville #txstatepark#whitepelicans#migration#birdsofinstagram Can't find a spoon carve a spoon. Mesquite.#onetreewoodwork#spooncarving #mesquitewood#woodisgood Find some Holiday cheer wherever you can.#getoutside#shinercheer #lakesomerville Did a little pre-Turkey hike around the lake with the family this morning. Before the weather and turkey hang over sets in. I haven't been to the lake since the last big batch of rain and man did it rise.#thanksgiving2015 #getoutside #lakesomerville #preturkey#texasig#welchpark On this the day before Thanksgiving I give thanks for BEING HERE NOW. We are here and others we love are not and that is just life. Fragile and fleeting this life is and we are here for only a moment a flash really. We owe it to life and those around us to always "Be here now". #onetreewoodwork #thanksgiving2015 #beherenow#ramdass Flip side of necklace. Just plain old wood therapy on this side.#onetreewoodwork #aromatherapyjewelry #mesquitewood#woodisgood Prototype: aromatherapy necklace carved mesquite and then I molded and stamped  natural earth clay that dries hard but stays semi porous. Which makes a good substrate to put a few drops of your favorite essential oil on it (not my idea just my take on it). #onetreewoodwork #aromatherapy #aromatherapyjewelry #esentialoils #woodjewlery
