This is a solid cherry Bar top I made to add some much needed appeal to this room. The wall brackets are also cherry and custom made. Top measures 7 1/2feet long and 17” wide. I spent 14 hours handplaning and scraping this as it was too big for any of my machines.

It’s a nice project and really adds something to the kitchen.

much better! you could have edited the original picture by erasing it and downloading the second picture.
but this works too. I like that feature. Sometimes I’ll update old posts with better pictures. Great website!

The bar top looks good. It will probably be the favorite spot to hang out at your parties.

Now, you have to build new matching cherry kitchen cabinets.
