Finished this up a few weeks ago. It stands 42” high x 26” deep x 72” long. Made out of white oak with an interior of UV maple classic core plywood. It will be getting a custom made copper top with a sink in the left end. Finish is a number of different things. Its been wire brushed and scraped, burnt with a torch in places. Dye stains and glazes, lacquer and waxed.

The first two pictures was just after a coat of lacquer. When it was done it wasn’t as shinny as in the pictures.

If your counting there’s around 28 different radius’s in the curved end.

Thanks for looking!

Gorgeous bar! I love the glazing.

How did you get that cove to wrap around the corner?

I’m sure it took a lot of time and work. I think I would of let it natural or filled the pores to get an even stain. For me the stain ruined the piece.

And maybe then it would look half as good.

That is one nice looking bar, one of the best I have seen in a long time. It deserve a top 3!
