Here is the video for the first bar I made. This one was more of a prototype as I was still figuring things out.
Here is the second version with some extra features added, long with some Faux marbling .
Sorry about the music on the video…don’t know what I was thinking;)
Description of this bar.
This one of a kind Bar was designed and constructed by Mixed Media Artist Duane Vickers. This project’s design began in late December 2003, and the prototype was completed in February 2006. Duane finished construction of this marble and walnut design on January 17th 2007. The front and back are finished with a faux painting techniques often referred to as Marbling.
