First I hope I’m in the right room for this post. You’ll tell I am a rookie very quickly. I have started a bar in my basement. It’s all based on knotty pine theme with a pine log exterior. I find the bar top the most daunting. I have quit working on the bar for a about a month because I can’t decide what to do for the surface. ARRGGHHH
My plan is to build it out of 4” wide pine. I plan to run the grain the full length of my longest section but what would be best when I get to the L? Continue the grain in the same north south direction or go east west. Or should I do a 45 degree cut to match them up?
And also would it be unwise to mix different species of wood for the bar top if I am doing knotty pine everywhere else? I have only recently learned that navy blue and black don’t go together so you can see I have a hard time knowing if a wood species would blend well in this situation.
