No, she robs dentists' waiting rooms.
debatable, as far as I understand it, and not as a structural product, just decorative. anyway, it doesn't predate veneer, which is my greater point.
The first doesn't matter because veneers predate ply and mdf. You seem to think that using something worse makes it more authentic because historically the ancient Egyptians didn't have plywood. Second, there is no difference. It is just the choice of finish. You are making a value judgment between solid and veneer based on incorrect info when you should just say that you like the idea of solid wood but you really don't know why.

The PK stuff is worse, though. It is the go to modernism for people who like Architectural Digest.
The people who love it have ruined it for me.
The PK stuff says something I don't like. It is beautiful stuff, though.
