This man, 53-year-old Sergei Bobkov, takes wood chips, soaks them in water
for many days.   He uses a tree from Russia (Red Cedar).  Then he starts building
his pieces which takes him about 6 months, 10 hours a day to finish it.  He was
offered a lot of money for one piece but won't sell one.  Enjoy the pictures
