Mini bar, built from maple slabs and redwood roots. I built this for a friends art gallery in west Seattle called Mind Unwind. The finish on the main slab is a two part epoxy with the shine taken off and the rest is a poly made by Deft Measures 8’x2’ 30 somthing inches high I was shooting for a simple flow of lines and good contrast, thanks for lookin lumber jocks.

Beautiful. It looks shorter than I would expect, what is the height of the top, ~24”?

As with all your work – stunning! Beautiful flow and symmetry. Was wondering if you might be willing share how you took the shine off the epoxy top? Thanks.

A one of a kind piece that I’m sure the customer AND their customers will drool over.

TZH, to take the shine off ill let it cure for a few days then start in with a 400 grit nice and even over the hole thing then work to a 600 grit and 0000steel wool and then rub it down with kit car wax. The process takes awhile but the results are great.
