another project from work that gave me a lot of freedom. it was for a man-cave, the project was built from rough cut poplar. the second picture is no stain. the top was plained one side for workability, the other side was left rough, but i ran an orbital over it to knock off the slivers. The door panels and face panels matched the top. the columns and door frames were plained out both sides, machined then i used a hand plane with a curved blade to create a worn effect and then i took a cordless skill saw with the blade just below the plate and slide it along at an angle to create another effect over the hand plane marks, then I used a narrow hand scraper to add a few more effects. then the whole thing was stained in early american with 3 coats of satin finish. The last picture is the drawer front frames before the center panels were installed.

That’s a great man-cave bar. You did a very nice job on it.
