This bar was a cooperative effort between myself and a buddy for his basement den. He brought me a big walnut log to cut up on my sawmill. Everything was kiln-dried and then the preparation began. He had the bar top sanded in a wide belt sander and then began cleaning the natural edges. I took the remaining lumber and planed and tongue an grooved the majority of it. The last few pieces I ran through the moulder for a couple of pieces of crown molding which was used as the base trim. The pictures don’t do justice for how awesome the lights underneath the bar-top set of the beautiful colors and grain pattern of the walnut. The top slab is a 2.25” thick, 20” wide, and roughly 9feet long. The whole thing is finished with poly-urethane. Let me know what you guys think..
