This is a bar with a sliding door to reveal a wet bar behind. The wood is walnut with walnut burl panels. The finish is dye stain and glazes with black lacquer accents. The second photo is from the bar side.The cabinets here are walnut with a granite top and hidden ice maker. The bookcase is on the opposite side of the room.

The only way to describe this project is truly magnificant and elegant – what an outstanding display of time, talent and wood.

Curious did you also do the stools and if so what material?

Excellent work!

Is that just endgrain that looks darker around the panels or something different?

Thanks All for the nice comments.

AdMarketing Guy, >Curious did you also do the stools<
Nope :)

Gary K,
>Is that just endgrain that looks darker around the panels or something different?<

All of the black you see is black lacquer. After the stain, glaze and several coats of sealer, – - the pieces were masked and the black lacquer was applied. Then the final finish was sprayed.
