Cool! How long did you have to steam that before you twisted it?

That is totally freaky. The last picture reminds me of a pig somehow. I guess this is like a rorschak. The first pic made me think of a candy cane gone awry.

I really like this, but jagwah talked about steaming and twisting? I’m a bit confused, I thought the junipers grew that way with the twist and curves or am I thinking of something else? I’ve seen them take the small ones and make Bonzai trees out of them. Mtkate, I always thought that I had a great imagination. Before, I’ve been accused of even warped, strange, and wild imagination. But I sure couldn’t see the pig. I saw the beak and eye of a Bald Eagle but I couldn’t get a pig out of it. You must have an awsome imagination, which is excelent, especially for wood work. I can’t wait to check out your posts. Oh Tim and Candy, sorry didn’t mean to leave you out,,, the first question was for you but also wanted to add great job as usual, and didn’t realize it was this close to Christmas, My hopes for a happy and save holiday to you and yours. And to all the other L.J.s here.

Hey Jagwah, it wouldn’t be the first time I was wrong, especially about wood. I got 4 catorgories, pine, oak, pretty and pretty ugly, so your guess is better than mine L.O.L. I just thought man if they steamed and twisted these,”THEY really are talented!” Not nice to tease this close to Christmas. L.O.L. Hope you and yours and everyone else has a happy and safe holidays. Merry Christmas everyone.

Hello Jagwah – Well it takes hundreds of years to get the wood to twist the way that it does. It not onlly takes hot temperatures but also sub zero temperatures, wind, rain, snow and sunshine. What is so amazing about this wood is that all coloring and shape is natural. All we do is sanblast and sand to uncover out the beauty.

I dont see the pig, it does remind me of pulled taffy. You know when you go by a candy store and you can see the taffy machines pulling the candy?

Thanks again for all yoru support and comments. We hope that everyone had a great Christmas and we also wish everyone and your familys a very safe, prosperous and Happy New Year
