Here is another bar that I did for a customer. This was out of oak with a stain to match an existing cabinet. The top is solid oak laminated together. Brass accents as well. This project led to two other new customers…love referrals….I also love building bars….it leaves a lot to creativity.

You do good work.
Did you make the bar rail?
What kind of finish did you use?
I have made one bar top and would like to make more. When I started on mine I check the price of pre-made bar rail and quickly discovered I needed to learn to make my own. It’s in my projects if you want to check it out.
Thanks for sharing.

I purchased the bar rail and yes it is very expensive…I do not own a sharper so making one was not an option. I would like to be able to make one…it pays to shop around though….stay away from box stores and specialty woodworking shops for this as the price will break the bank. I found that mill-work shops are the most reasonable.

I made the bar rail in the link below without a shaper. I used the table saw and a round over bit in the router.

What did you finish the bar top with?
