I am in the process of building a basement bar/kitchen. The bar top is going to be 12’ X 8’ in the shape of an L and the width is going to be around 15”-16”.
I plan to use black walnut as my bar top and wanted to ask the group how thick it should be? I plan on re-sawing the walnut and thought 1/32” veneer would be to thin for a bar top, yet I don’t want to go too thick and have movement issues. I plan on using 1 layer of 3/4” baltic birch and gluing the walnut onto another 1/2” baltic birch.
If I glued the walnut to the 1/2” birch ply and used screws underneath do you think that would stop any movement? I have quite a bit of 12/4 black walnut so i can go as thin or thick as I need, but don’t want waste the walnut by going to thick. Thanks folks,
