This is in the restaurant that I built the heavy duty shelf for. They wanted to get rid of the formica in a few spots and make it more rustic. I've still got some more work to do but this is the progress so far. I'm working this job in between some floors that I had on the books.









The name in the tops is actually branded in. I had never done this before and the owner had the idea and supplied the brands. I was very pleased with how it turned out. I branded them pretty deep, then sanded the top some with a ROS to get rid of the scorching around the letters. Then applied the epoxy finish.

I've got a lumber yard about 50 miles from my house that sells them along with heavy timbers and different log sidings as well as the flooring I use. They also carry 1x stock along with car siding, channel siding and the log railings I use. They mainly cater to the person wanting to build a rustic house that looks like a log home without the trouble of a log home.

I buy the slabs for $22.00 a linear foot and they average 26" wide.

Well, that restaurant just improved exponentially, in looks at least. That is some quality looking work Dave.

The project pictures by themselves are impressive, but the before and after comparison makes it that much better. Huge improvement!
