Construction began January 8, 2011 and completed January 19th. The most recent pictures are on top of this page.
Countertop is made of solid oak which handles abuse well. Siding is tongue and groove cedar. The purchaser can add a wine rack on the "host side" for remote tasting events.
NO LAMINETS OR VENEERS!!! As a result, the wine bar can be re-sanded, stained, varnished or repaired, if needed. It's so durable, it will last a lifetime!
The contrast of the top oak boards turned out fantastic by not staining the edge board. All done, except for a few more coats of varnish!! The 2x8 cedar base added tremendous stability.
Back view after 1st coat of varnish. We need to heat the shop to 72 degrees so it gets pretty toasty in there. A wine rack can be added to the back by the purchaser (not included)
The Benite really brings out the contrast of the cedar.
End of day Sunday, January 9th. (Woo Hoo!!)
