I had an oak log milled and got an order for a man cave bar. I used dowels for joining and stained poplar for the legs. A friend of mine is having a baby and wanted to give hubby a place to go. This is the beginning of his man cave. Can’t wait to see it in the finished room.
Looks like the dog and cat photo bombed me! :)

Thanks for looking!!

That’s a hefty looking bar table, nice work.

Looks great. Is it a little top heavy?

Luckily no. I was afraid of that as well but I wanted to try this design. :)

Nice! Any idea what kind of oak that is? It looks somewhat like our blackjack but don’t know if it grows in Florida.

Agree totally with your tag line!

Not sure but the guy at the mill says it’s some sort of red oak.
Thanks! I’d rather hang out with dogs more than some people!

Blackjack is in the red oak family so could be.
