More than a hundred years ago, homesteaders along the Rocky Mountains staked out new land by planting fence posts around their property. They strung barbed wire and the era of free-range cattle and sheep came to an end. The wood was naturally insect and weather resistant, and many survive to this day. About fifteen years ago, woodworker Wayne Murray got the idea to create a duck out of this remarkable wood, and now Colorado Springs artist Tim Bergren carries on the same tradition of his mentor before him. Each piece is differentsometimes the color is a deep red, sometimes a honey-gold. Many times, it is somewhere in between. Cedar. Made in USA.
