Here’s a basement bar I did for a friend’s relatives a few years ago. Basic design by the homeowner, refined a bit by me to make it buildable. :-)
Cherry veneer dyed with aniline dye. Note: the color of dyed cherry can change dramatically under different types of light. Due to the small size of my garage, this was done in two stages. Main bar first, followed by the cabinets. When I installed the doors, to my horror, they were bright RED! But under the fluorescent lights in my garage, they were a perfect match. Had to strip and completely refinish them; added at least 20 hours of work.
Black accents are walnut with black dye. Walnut is a great wood for black dye. The tapered columns were rather tricky to do. They were made with a plywood frame, and wrapped with 3/8” bending plywood, and walnut veneer.
The boxed column hides a steel post, and the water lines for the sink.
Unfortunately, they didn’t get the granite tops done until several months later, and I never got a pic with them in. There was supposed to be a custom made stainless steel foot rail as well.
And I never got a really good full picture, because there wasn’t enough light in the unfinished basement.
