I designed this for an art gallery opening that sells western paintings. I used spalted quilted pecan for the legs and cross members and resawn to 3/4’’ the outer weatherd distressed face of a 1700 hundred year old broken door from Spain. The type of wood is still a mystery but it’s so hard cutting wore out two resaw blades to cut two pieces. I attatched the mystery wood woven with burlap twine . Since the Indian custom is to leave an item on the scaffold when the tribe visits the burial grounds I threaded african snail shells and one porcupine quill for the gifts. I used the mystery wood for the mortise pins . The whole project is my offering to the wind and sun Gods so the San Antonio Spurs go all the way.
