I wonder if they're plywood... Otherwise their grain is going the wrong way.

Good point, blowing up the picture of the largest butterfly it's not clear. It looks sort of like a design in the wood?

Could be regular butterfly joints, covered with an inlay.

What is it? Damifino, I guess it's a desk with embellishments. Maybe Timothy Leary's desk. :stpaddy:

With a little imagination you could make a pipe out of that pussy cat. ;)

Jap wood treatment of Cedar is supposed to make it more fire resistant.

I learned about that after watching this:



Quote:

To preserve the wood from the spoiling, fame posts, sills, top beams and final cladding boards are treated with fire and pine tar mixed with Tung oil. This wood preservation technique was adapted from the Japanese traditional wood preservation technique Shou Sugi Ban (焼杉板).
Exterior cladding boards recoating each 10-15 years with Tung oil and pine or birch tar mixture, the house can last more than 500 years. As an example is taken Norwegian stave churches that stands more than 500 years until nowadays.
:devil:

This is strange, obviously not wood.

fargon 08-30-2017 12:11 PM

That looks like wood.

Happy Monkey 08-30-2017 12:41 PM

I'd say it's veneer.
