Cool piece, Monte. My only concern would be the knots. How do you handle those so they aren’t a concern? And why aren’t you delivering some BKP to NY????

I didn’t realize it was 3” thick. Do you need me to come over and give you a hand carrying that.

Nice job. I bet it will look great when the customer gets it where he wants it.

Those are really pretty! But 3” thick? Those are pretty hefty bar tops!

Another cool Monte project. You must have a winch (or a wench) to help you lift that bar top. How much does it tip the scales at, Monte?

It’s probably not as heavy as you might think. Maybe 75 lbs (the big one). The Oak one idid a yyear ago was probably 200 lbs.
