This is not as exiting as the bookcase but I really love the look of the reclaimed old Pine and hemlock.
Bar rail was made in shop out of oak. All solid beams on corners and ends of the bar and back upper section also, they have so much character on their own.
Had to come up with a concealed angled cleat system (sort of like keyhole but much stronger) for the large beams hung on the wall. No visible fasteners!
We made flat panels with a custom milled applied molding, since no one makes moldings with reclaimed wood we always have to make our own.
Unfortunately the clients sold the house before we got to be served a drink. LOL
The last picture is the before shot.

The dark top really pulls out the grain in the recycled wood – makes for a wonderful overall effect. Really nice.

Gorgeous old wood, nice build, that should have raised the value of the house by a few thousand.

Probably the best bar I have ever seen. I’m soooo jealous.

Agree with Rick on the Contrast. Excellent work.

Thanks for sharing.
