Traveling Thursday...again

Hey Everyone!
Wow, my peeps ran away with Frankie and Mamaw and Papaw Pantslegs last weekend!  They all had a blast together.  Here are some pix of this cool place they went where there were pawesome wood carvings...Warther Museum in Amish Country in Ohio...
Mr Warther was amazing at carving wooden pliers.

video
He made this pawesome scene from a steel mill...and the parts move!! All hand carved!

Cool huh?!?
His whole family liked to hunt for arrow heads, then he arranged them to display.

Check out the detail in the engine!

He met several US presidents and here he is on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.

Anyway, if you find this interesting, you can check out the museum if you're ever in Ohio! 

Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

Frankie Furter said...

Oh Sarge you put up some terrrrrrific pics and the two movies are grrrrrreat.
Guess What... the moving pawts on the steel mill... have NEVER EVER needed to be oiled.. because of the type of wood that he used to make those thingys.
What a grrrreat talented man he was. He even CARVED POST CARDS that actually went through the mail to his furends.. and he even had LETTERS from three PRESIDENTS about his wonderful work.

That guy has unbelievable talent! We're still trying to figure out how he makes those pliers! Having trouble making the movies work (error!) but we'll come back later and check 'em out! Your peeps were lucky to see his work in person!!!

I remembered reading this post from yesterday but apparently I didn't bother to watch the videos. I totally forgot about them until Frankie mentioned them so I had to come back and check them out.

road-dog-tales said...

Aha! The videos are working for us now. That is just amazing! The carvings themselves are incredible, but then he makes them move, too! WOW!!! Thanks for sharing!
