So I have barely posted anything about the bar build in quite some time. So much has been accomplished in the past few months. My wife and I have successfully taught ourselves how to paint and install laminate flooring. We chose a flooring called weather maple in an ash finish. Also you can see that the HDTV was mounted but the wiring has not been properly hidden thru the wall yet. I have learned how to operate the ShopBot (computer controlled router) and milled out some custom cabinets out of pre-finished maple sheets. The maple cabinets will make up the skeleton structure of the bar and act as storage for glasses and such.
This weekend I am picking up my walnut order from Armstong Millworks in Milford MI. I had Armstrong do some glue ups for our raised panel bar front and had them mill a custom walnut bar rail out that will extend the length of bar. I plan on doing some serious woodworking with my father-in-law Phil. He is completely the brains behind the design. Check out his kick-ass 3D Renderings. I sure am glad that he accepts my homebrew and BBQ as a form of payment for all of his efforts.
