So going to steal this for my bar, could see this making excellent bar stool covers for the yet to be made stools. Very nicely done… Sure the friend appreciates greatly… Thanks for sharing…

It looks great, like the burnt details. It looks authentic combined with the pretty wood.

Thanks guys! The wood is just big box store 1×4’s edged and planed and biscuited. I did two sections so they would go in my planer, and made sure I planed them evenly, then biscuited those two sections together. Then I simply carved it in my CNC router. For paint I softly burned the edges fresh off the cnc with a small handheld torch, then I used spray on high temp paint, but didn’t spray it on. I shot it in a cup and painted it in the letters to fill all the un-burnt sections. Then I hit it with the torch again. Sanded, and applied 4 coats of wipe on poly. Pretty simple actually! Thanks for looking and commenting!
