Thanks, everyone, for the kind words! The party's at 8:00! ...but, since I just finished building it, y'all will have to byob to help me stock it.
As far as how much time I have into it, that's a tough question. I've been working on it for over a year, but in one hour here, a couple hours there increments (I'm sure everyone knows what I mean). I'd guess I've got 200 hours in it, but that's really just a wacky guess.
This was my first significant stained wood project and I found that precision is a lot more important when you don't have caulk and paint to lean on. Also, I had no idea that you can't
go to the big box home center and buy mahogany moulding, so milling all the trim added numerous hours to what I thought would be a few weekend project. Especially since my only tools for milling are a 1/4" router with small, cheap table, and a decent table saw.
I'll try to snap a few more 'detail' pics and post 'em soon.
My next project to get started soon is the back bar. I'm planning on making it only one bottle deep to save space but still be able to display lighted liquours in front of a mirror. Has anyone seen those LED bottle stands that light bottles from underneath in any of many colors? I'm thinking I might need to rig something like that. http://www.trinorthlighting.com/Bott...f_Lighting.htm
