I once spoke with a local Chroming company about chroming wood. They were more than happy to attempt it but had reservations about the temperature of molten chrome on wood causing instant combustion and adhering to the wood. They used a special bonding agent to permanently bond it to steel or other metals. Apparently the bonding agent wont work on a porous surface such as wood. They did suggest the idea of powdercoating and polishing the finish. Powdercoat ovens apparently use a lower temperature oven that shouldnt combust the wood.
I have no idea what this guys process is but I dont see me shipping anything of value to risk a charred chunk of wood thats nice and shiny.
