I’ve been working on this old farm house for a while, the home owners decided they wanted to use the wood from an old well house that had fallen down. So I was limited to what I had in the pile, that’s the reason for the haring bone pattern for the bar top.

Still need to do some inlay of some of the “treasures” found while doing some other remodeling. We’ve found 1895 penny, 1900’s Quarter, and some spurs hidden away above one of the doors. I’ll be inlaying the old house key and some other hardware, and the pouring the epoxy over everything to finish it off.

That’s awesome. Make sure and take some pictures one you have the treasures inlaid. I’d really like to see how it looks completely finished.
