Theme Day at City Daily Photo

Hello, City Daily Photo friends it's the beginning of the month of August and our theme is 'Wood' and follow this link at City Daily Photo for other wood posts.

Our theme for August is Wood!

Wood, we'd be in a world of trouble without wood in our lives.

Have you ever played with a wood pile?

Gold is more precious than wood, it is true. But you cannot and will not cook with or write on gold, you cook with 'wood' and write on wood.
Just because one seems to have superior value does not render others useless. A forest full of trees is as important as a gold mine.
Paul Bamikole

We build giant chairs for fun.

We sit on wooden benches nearly everywhere we go.

Artsy wood stuff hangs from trees in Hastings, Minnesota.

Designed and built especially for Gnomes. 

We walk on wood.


Sit on it.

Carve it and sometimes,
Drill holes in it while designing arts and crafts.

Can you see the natural face design in this piece?

"To dwellers in a wood, almost every species of tree has its voice as well as its feature."  Thomas Hardy

Just imagine the table or chair or anything else for that matter that may come from this piece above. 

This last weekend I went to Pioneer Village and the Little Log House, and this is where they had a woodsman doing various wood presentations.

An axe, wood to split, and a determination to keep warm is enough to keep any fire burning. Craig D. Lounsbrough

Wood if you stop to think of it, has been man's best friend in the world. It held him in his cradle, went to war as the gunstock in his hand, was the frame of the bed he came to rejoicing, the log upon his hearth when he was cold, and will make him his last long home.  It was the murmuring bough above his childhood play, and the roof over the first house he called his own. It is the page he is reading at this moment; it is the forest where he seeks sanctuary from a stony world. 
Donald Culross Peattie

Thanks for visiting and if you play along and join in on our wood theme. I'll be checking in with your posts as well.

I think a forest full of tree is more important than a gold mine. Much more.
