Made this bar for a hunting lodge in my area. Made of reclaimed materials I removed from an old barn 5 years ago. The wood is red oak and the square plugs are walnut. I incorporated a little slate just to break up the top since it was so large. All in all I’m happy with finished results

Looking good, very good.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

That does look real good. I bet it’s going to get lots of use.

Awesome! Reminds me of a project my aunt did in for a friend in Maryland … she turned his man cave into a coastal crab shack! Murals, rusted lights, and everything … really looked cool. Good job on your bar!
