For Steve Wavro this pumpkin head was a learning experience, his first project.  It is of walnut, cherry, osage, and western red cedar.

This sculpture stand was ingeniously crafted by Art Thompson.  It can be easily disassembled; the whole thing comes apart.  The edges are of coco bolo and the panels are from a 2000 year old California redwood -- redwood burl from a tree that had naturally fallen and not timbered. Being able to disassemble the stand allowed Art to finish the coco bolo edges separate from the  panels themselves.
