Didn’t want everyone to think I am sitting around doing nothing. This week I was supposed to be at my biggest show of the year. However because of some setbacks I had to skip it. I do still have a couple smaller shows coming that I intend to be ready for.

This bar was built for display and is not finished in the back. If someone wants to buy it, I will finish it per the customer request. It’s beetle kill pine. It’s 6 ft wide, 3 ft deep and 42 inches high. Since I am always looking for improvement, comments are always welcome.

The body is finished with multiple coats of Polyurethane. The top is bar top epoxy.

Yes it was finished in my house. My finish room is still in the planning stage.

Thanks for reading

Great job Monte! The finish on the top looks great! I’m glad to see you’re not letting your “setbacks” slow you down.

I think it’s ready for the show now. Add a couple optional stools with it and your off. Beautifully finished.

Very nice Marty. Glad that nothing like the mere loss of a shop can stop you.

There is no doubt that you won’t any setbacks slow you down and stop your progress. Very nice bar…it should sell easily. Have you been accumulating tools or was this lumber that was already cut prior to the fire?

I have been doing both. I am searching for tools like a mad man. But I have 4 current projects that were started well before the fire. Just needs finishing.
