That's sharp. How long is it? I assume you had to make it in peices then assemble on site. WHat kind of finish on the top?

Do one thing at a time, do it well, then move on.

Thanks

The front it 12' long. I was built on site, but it would have been easier to build in my shop and assemble on site, but they wanted me to work around the existing bar that had the glass block already installed. So this was made to cover the existing bar.

The top is made up of 2 3/4" sheets of plywood with the top sheet being Cabinet Grade Oak. The Chicago Bar rail and drink rail was added and then topped with Bar Topper Clear Epoxy. The front and sides were doen with Lacquer.

Yep! its a lovely job.

You mentioned lacquer and clear epoxy, but did you use a stain also?

I'm not that familiar with northern timber but to get a rich dark luster like that we'd use a stain also.

A woodsman went looking for wood he traveled one mile North, one mile West, then one mile South and one mile East. Where did he end up? Think you know? Check your answer here and find other free woodworking information.

Yes, the bar was stained first. Two coats of stain, but I can not recall the color without checking the customer file.

That has to be one very happy customer. Nice job with the barcoat finish too. How did you handle the drying and set-up time for the barcoat finish? The stuff I use takes 72 hours before it can be used.

Digger I can't find out anything about the BAr Topper Clear Epoxy you referenced. I want to consider for the counter top I'm building for our breakfast bar. Where can I find it online a google didn't turn up anything. Except this thread which is nice but I need a source for it.

Not sure what Digger is using but I use the epoxy resin from Chery Tree. Here is a link
https://www.cherrytreetoys.com/ do a search on their site for epoxy. You can buy it in quantities from 1/2 pint to 4 gallons. Also run a search on their site for "Eat-A-Bubble". It is an easy way to remove bubbles that wil ruin the appearance of the finish.

Here are a few links for Bar Top Epoxy.

http://liquidglasscoating.com/

http://www.bartopepoxy.com


You can also check with your local PROFESSIONAL Paint store. Most either have it or can order it for you.

Good Luck! Take your time and MIX WELL!!! I use a squirrel mixer for this.
