Maybe the chain link is a roll-up curtain type thingy. Sorta hard to discern.No doubt very different but I can't get over the chain link over the windows..........maybe it drove them crazy. On another note they are in what looks like a multiple story building so how in the world do you get that up there? Most natural edge slab tables I've seen are a single piece. Curious minds want to know.
When I blow up the picture, it looks like palm trees in the park below. Must be a tropical wood. I agree it does look like cedar that the termites got into.The general color and the pocket rots in it and the type of heart rot remind me of western red cedar. As a logger and faller I cut 1000s of these. As a log scaler I scaled a few thousand.The gray overcast skies and the mountain in the background remind me of the pacific northwest where cedar grows.
Steve I wonder if the chain link is to prevent bird strikes against the windows?
