Working wood by hand forces you to pay particular attention to grain direction. With eyes open your awareness of change is heightened. While smoothing the arches on my stool with the spokeshave I noticed this subtle change in the wood grain.


Makes me wonder what caused this change…..kiln drying the wood? Or a more natural change in the tree’s environment?

When I notice the smells and textures of the wood, the world is a better place.
