    I think it is a variety of wood, just whatever we have lying around, lol. I think that it is mostly hickory and oak though since that is about all we have here.

    Cottonwood give it a nice light brown color, cedar, more of a gray.

    Do you folks ever go to Friendship, IN? That's a great place to see some wonderful crafts of this type, as well as learn how they are made!

    We have not made to Friendship yet. There are always a lot of things always going on around that time, we hope to make it there one day!

    When you say "bark tan," what specific plants are you using in the process?

    As stated, we do not do the bark tanning process ourselves. It is done by a local tanner in Sadieville, and he aint giving out his secret formulas.
