« Part 2: Holes and profiles. Part 3 of Foot rail for the bar...... series no next part

Finally got around to fitting the bar rail for my good mate John’s bar…

After screwing the brackets onto the bar posts the length of Tasmanian Oak Dowel was threaded through the holes and smaller dowels were used to secure the rod..

Here is a shot of me using a small pink rose covered hammer to drive the smaller dowels in..

And a shot of me with the hammer…
As you can see still have to plug the counter bored holes…

Nearly time to christen the bar rails…

Have been invited to a New Year’s Eve party tomorrow… the bloke who build the bar in the first place will be there… hope he likes how I did the rails…

The pink hammer goes with the shirt. Nice combination.

Great job on the rails.

The Rail looks Great, Larry, and that is a real pretty hammer…
Have some good fun at the party but don’t forget to mind your P’s and Q’s… or do they say, “Mind your L’s” nowadays??
All the Best to You in 2011, my Friend!!

Whoa . . . wait . . . STOP . . . . Installing a foot rail implies standing at the bar. This from the guy who suggests “Drink twice . . . ” You should be installing chair rails so your recliners don’t mar the bar. LOL.

Love the foot rail Larry, but the hammer is a little out of proportion to the user. The color is exciting though.
