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.

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.
