Witco Wood?

Pages: 1 3 replies


I am currently designing a tiki bar for the home, and I think I want to make it Witco-esque... but I have only seen photos of the classic Witco bars. Does anyone know what kind of wood Witco used?




Real thick Cedar!

Swamp Cedar from Canada, gone over with a torch after it was carved with chainsaws and power tools, then linseed oil is applied.

I have seen some projects done with Hemlock wood, which has a wide grain pattern similar to the cedar used in the Witco pieces.
