I measured it once, and I cut it twice, and it's still too short......

Wow!!! That bar top is absolutely gorgeous with the finish on it! From the start of the pics I wasn't quite sure how good it might look finished, but when I got to the last few pics, I was stunned! Great job! If I had a basement with a bar and a pool table I don't think I'd ever need to leave my house! I want what you have! Haha! Keep up the good work brother!

Wow! I give you props. I've seen a few home built bars but nothing like that! Love it! I thought at first all you had was a bar top, but then I saw the stuff behind it, looks great!

Helmsman indoor/outdoor Spar Urethane.... Thanks, it has been a project I have been working on and off for a couple months. It has been a slow go of it due to a bad car wreck I was in, but one day at a time..... Thanks

New pics, I used Areo Marine 300/21 Bartop Epoxy, 2 coats. I am going to need to put on 2 more coats to get it as smooth as I want it to be, Need to let it harden then sand with 600 +800 Grit wet. After that I can re-coat with 2 flood coats of epoxy.

Good job! That aeromarine epoxy will last virtually forever inside a house with no UV exposure :)

That looks awesome! Great job on the top as well. One day when I have a house with the extra space I'm going to tackle one of these. Hope it turns out this good!

Nice job, looks like the dog is a good listener. I don't drink much, but make mine a Miller Lite, Cheers.

Great work. I like the beer bottle tips (if I'm not mistaken) you added.
