We can call it faux if that sounds better…one thing for sure, it was beautiful!!! There is no going back and taking a sample….because of it’s proximity to D.C. they try so many violent dope dealers there that the place has a perimeter fence like a military base and a kiosk with U.S. Federal Marshals for guards. You have to have court issued papers to get in. Funny thing about the place, last time I was there every one of the marshals looked like they could have been former mobsters or “made” wise guys. I don’t think the chisel and sample is probably not a good idea, funny for sure though.
I don’t know exactly what it is they do to the wood…I called it stain because you could definitely see some of the grain through it. Imagine the picture posted above in real life, live in person being 4 foot wide and 8 foot tall. I will for certain agree that it is art.
As far as veneer…I guess anything is possible, but still they would have had to be some very huge trees to the point that it is hard to believe not ever having seen or heard of one that big,let alone 20.
