Aut cum scuto aut in scuto
so the ones back then had saws? Looks that way. maybe they weren't as backward as we have been led to believe.
My very first thought!!!
My uncle had a 36" coffee table made from a 4" slab of one of these. It was old, as in 30's/40's. Wonder how many years in prison for making one these days?
Lotsa weird shit in Arizona.
Petrified wood that has obviously been sawn raises some serious questions.
I'll have mine medium rare.
I live an hour away from PF/PD and have gone a couple times. It's very austere and interesting. There was a ton of amateur scavenging starting over a century ago and running through the start of the preservation efforts. A lot of tabletops were produced and sold to people in the east. The petrified logs laying around on the ground are fractured as if they were sawn. I don't recall seeing any as colorful as the ones in the snaps.
My wife was amazed with the PF. She really flipped out when I splash some water on a few.
