How do you think this was accomplished?

I like the look of it.

A log squared up, staggered holes drilled, then the rest with a bandsaw.

It says walnut in the technical specs, 14 x 14 x 20" high, so it doesn't seem to be misrepresented anywhere.

Maybe prices are just inflated where Im at, walnut is crazy expensive up here. I think I paid like 8.50 bd/ft for rough sawn 8/4. Slabs and blocks like that were even MORE expensive, and priced per unit instead of bd foot. That design isnt my cup of tea, but the value sure seems to be there?

It looks like butternut to me. Butternut is commonly used in large wood sculptures. Butternut is much easier to carve.
Butternut and walnut are in the same family but not tightly knit.

I read through the specs of the piece and their was no mention of the species of wood. It did say ‘walnut finish’ but did not mention type of wood.

Looking at the context clues of literally every other piece of furniture they have for sale, it appears to be monkey pod.

It is.

I saw "Walnut" next to "Finish" and had a brain fart.
