 My guess....I've got some old house siding that looks like that and i've seen some old Poplar that has most of those colors.

I like how he has made things look.

Very talented no matter the wood type(s)...Certainly a lot of time spent sawing or re-sawing to get then thin strips...way more patience than I currently possess.

Thanks Fred for taking the time to capture the pictures & post. Very enjoyable.

I cannot, but I think they did a really nice job on those.

Not sure of the wood  but the second pictures looks a lot like the one we had when I was young.

 Was it sitting on a big wooden septic tank like the pic?giggle.gif

SURPRISE  :o

 

Well, folks, take a look at:  Petrified Wood Gallery, Ogallala, NE

 

I wanted to video my interview with the brothers but they did not want me to Video.  DID spend about 1/2 hour talking with each one of them.  Yes, all of these were made from Petrified Wood.  Watched them work for a little while.  Fantastic.

 

I DID find a You Tube video of them.  

See it HERE

No, just a couple of timbers over a hole in the ground; a coffee can full of lime and a Sears and Roebuck catalog!

These creations are only 6 to 10" tall.  Shows you the finite skills involved.
