This is the project that started it all. This bar took me a year to build. I built it in my advanced woodworking class my senior year in high school back in ‘04. I wish i can say i designed it but i purchased plans online. I knew from then on i wanted to pursue woodworking. It is constructed with maple and birch plywood. I made the arm cove molding myself on the table saw and added an inlay on the top. It was an incredible learning experiance for me and was a great beginning project. The plans allowed me to concentrate 100% on my technical skills and not have to worry about design aesthetics.

A good friend of mine parents like it so much they wanted me to build them one. Unfortunately, i agreed to do it at cost. But on the upside, it allowed me to hone my skills. I flipped the design and changed some detail.

Whether it was your design or not, the execution is terrific. Hope you got a super A+ on the project. Now just try to get it out of your parent’s house.
