Wasn’t sure if this was worth posting. Small breakfast bar in a cabin by one of our local lakes. About 5 feet long and 5 feet wide. They wanted the knotty pine on the base. Epoxy coating on the top.

Thanks for reading and all comments and suggestions are welcome.

I REALLY LIKE THE TOTAL PROJECT! Nice balance and accents set off by a really nice color in the top.

I really like the top – its quite lovely. Must admit though – I don’t like the look of the cabinets with the top – I think the color difference is just too stark. The customer is always right though.

I really, really do like the top.

Thanks for sharing.

Even with the bracket, that’s a gutsy overhang.
Are you worried about deflection over time at the outside corners?
I’m not sure I’d want to give it the jump test.

Having said that, it looks great! :-)

That’s a beauty Monty.
The grain and finish are gorgeous.
It definitely fits the cabin decor and would look good in my cousins cabin in northern Minnesota.

It’s fastened down a lot under the cabinet. This was done from pictures the customer had of another bar with this overhang. I would like less overhang personally also.

That top is a real beauty, it makes the whole bar. I would have to disagree with the customer wanting the knotty pine on the bottom, but give them what they want.
