I built this bar back for a restaurant renovation in Washington, DC several years ago. The designer came up with this idea of layering thousands, and I do mean thousands, of small trapazoid shaped pieces of plywood to form a “sandstone cliff.” It took about 20 sheet of standard 3/4” sheathing ply cut into trapazoids that were anywhere from 1.5” x 1.5” to 1.5” x 9.” Each piece was hand cut, sanded and nailed in place. I wish I had had access to a CNC router! The job took nearly a month and almost wore out my compressor.
Unfortunately the restaurant went out of business and the whole place has since been gutted. So this is the only photo I have of the project.
