So I built a new bar for my local American Legion and repurposed bowling alley for the top and foot rail. 64’ of top made for an interesting epoxy pour as it was all done at once. not only that, but we applied 2 coats. Made mostly of yellow pine with a bead board front panel. Did a maple and walnut strip every 8’ or so and at the corners to add stability as they didn’t want overhang support. Every one loved it and I got paid so alls good
