Custom Bar for a Local Restaurant
Here's the biggest commission I've done yet. It's a 14' x 6' bar for a local, hip restaurant. The main body was made with basic construction material. From there, it was built out with some great poplar from my local hardwood dealer. The finish on the main body is two coats of red milk paint, followed by two coats of black. From there, it was sanded out, distressed, then burnished, and finally a coat of wipe on poly for some luster. The top and bar rail is done with sapele and finished with five coats of Total Boat varnish, two coats of high gloss and 3 of satin. It has a brass foot rail and some cool solid brass folding purse hooks. It was a stressful but fun build. I was in and out in three 14 hour days, while the business was closed.
Thanks for looking!

I love the choice of paint/color for the base, looks amazing! The top is beautiful, I like working with Sapele. This is a massive project! Thanks for sharing.
Wow did you make the bar top yourself? The moldings too? Bar needs shelves behind it for some booze and they're ready to open! Nice work!
