Nice job, since you didn’t take enough pics for us Lumerjock junkies, I will have to insist that I come of for a beer and take a closer look. Well done.

Great job. As suggested in the future we like lots of pictures, dimensions and descriptions. Other wise you have to buy a round for all of us. :-)

Thanks for all the compliments….it was a lot of fun, very frustrating, but, did start the itch. I will try to load some in progress pics. I did not think it was going to come out that nice. Also had no idea of the amount of tools I would amass. lol. Thanks again.

I want one of these in my basement!
Great looking bar—and I really like the cash register! Nice touch!

I bought the cash register..for more than my wife knew…so kind of committed myself to building the bar to go under it.

I am hooked on the idea of building a real nice bench. That will be my next project I think soon as I find a way to pay for all the maple.
