Damn nice! I love the recessed area in front of the mixologist. The details and materials are beyond excellent, as is the design. Love those feet.

Da-amn.

Next is the rattan work around the counter top..

Looks great! I would like to suggest replacing your outlet with a GFCI verses what you have. The current outlet will not protect you if the grog spills in a gravity storm.

Great job Monkeyman, I saw the bar this morning and it has the same attention to detail that Derek puts in all of his creations.

I especially was impressed with the masks, don't ask to see it's an inside joke.

Hey all

I finished the install on this a few weeks back. Didnt get around to taking photos until recently. Here is the completed work.

Close up of the completed bar with the rattan perimeter in place.


The mug shelf built from left over parts used in the bar. This shelf has the same bamboo veneer around the exterior as is used on the bar top.


This image includes a shot of the recovered vintage barstools that were purchased off craigslist.


A wide shot including the refinished walls. Bamboo board on the lower half with black bamboo to separate the wall.





Night time shot complete with lighting.
