My son and I have 1500 to 1800 hours, including design time and acquiring materials, in this project. The woods are Khaya crotch veneer, Sapele veneered custom plywood, solid Sapele, Soft Maple for drawer boxes, and melamine for cabinet interiors. The tops are granite and the foot rail is brass. The back bar has a built in refrigerator/ice maker hidden behind a false drawer front. If we could make it, we did, right down to the outlet covers in the back bar. It all has 2 coats of wood stain on it and 3 coats of water based poly-urethane satin finish. Because we had no way to machine the bar rail we hand carved it. The back bar is over 11 feet long and the bar itself is over 7 feet long. See my previous posting for more photos

We’re not sure what’s more impressive: the wood or the workmanship! . . . a great combination!

Thanks for posting.

Holy Toledo! I can’t imagine the amount of work and skill it took to pull this off. I’d have to get dressed up just to sit down. Beautiful custom work.
