This is a bar. The last picture is the model I had to work from, it was only 20” long.The entire bar was made from 1/2” plywood and 3/8” bend ply. After plywood construction I fiberglassed and sanded smooth. I then sprayed on 3 coats of gel coat, then sanded, sanded, sanded. Then I buffed to a mirror finish with cutting compound then buffed again with 1500 compound. The bottom half of the bar was made from 2 layers of 3/8” bend ply. The bar top is Sepele and maple with maple plugs. No stain.The finish is 6 coats of conversion varnish. The top half of the boat was made from 3/4” 2 lbs. yellow foam. The foam comes in 4×8 sheets. It was glued together with fiberglass compound adhesive. Then fiberglassed inside and out, sanded, gel coated and buffed smooth. The top half is held to the ceiling by 3 – 1/2” all thread suspended from a unistrut. I covered the unistrut in the front with rope. The 2 rods in the center of the boat were covered with vhf antennas and the back part on the wall were screwed to the studs. This went to a restaurant in Naples Florida called Swan River Seafood. The crab on there website I also made, That will be my next post. http://www.swanriverseafood.com
