The Bar

It took MUCH longer than I planned but the bar finally is finally DONE! There were a LOT of mistakes made, I won't torture myself and point them out, but overall I am reasonably happy with it and it functions perfectly. The pictures from my crappy Canon camera DO NOT do it justice. It really is much nicer looking up close.
 It was built from spalted wormy maple and maple veneer ply. Oak was my first choice but I got a great deal on all the maple so maple it is! We finished it with an Early American stain and two coats of satin poly.

I found a bar online that was similar then I just made up my own plans in Google Sketch Up. Now I need to build some proper stools for it!
