Hello All, Well I had informed you that I’d try and post my son’s bar, that he and I made prior to X-mas of 07. He had fell in love with the Sofa table top, made out of Paduak. The base of the bar we made out of 3/4 inch oak cabinet grade plywood. The panels are made out of faux leather, which is framed by oak molding (we made it with a Router and Ogee bit). The bottom has 3 coats of Mahogany stain, with 2 coats of Poly Acyrlic clear coat. The top is made out of the Beautiful African Wood Paduak. The color is its Natural shade of orange, Coated with 4 Coats of Poly Acrylic clear coat. We utilized it for it durability and scratch resistance, hopefully time will tell. Details that you cannot see is the short section of the L has a door with 3 slide out trays ( 1 small tray on top 1 1/2” deep used for straws, knives, spoons, etc., 2 bottom trays each will hold 1 case of Tall Boys). The long section of the bar at the end closest to the mirror has a Wine Cooler built in. The in between section has 3 shelfs, bottom for extra liquers and wines and whatever, middle is a slide out ice tray and prep shelf, Top shelf has a serving area about 6 inches wide for drink glass and coasters. Well enjoy the pictures, oh the measurements are 7 foot long, 19 inches wide main section, 39 inches high. the L section is 32 inches deep. Once again Thanks for looking…....your brother in wood.
