"Wood's tool chest contains only tools that would have been available in ancient times, such as yucca, bone, gourd scrapers
and locally available plant-based paint.
He also hand gathers available fuel
for the fires. Even the clay Wood chose
for the workshop, Dakota Sandstone, appropriately was abundant in the
fourth century to ancestral Puebloans."
