Guilty as charged...yes I am an RN (16 years ICU and 17 years Management & Education in Telehealth Nursing). However, my first love is home decor, unfortunately I have no carpentry skills....so just have to drool over everyone else's fabulous builds.

I need a water feature.

Hey dtel, I see you haven't named your bar yet, what!
you really must remedy that & update your thread title
because this is now a full blown build

You will find with a name, your place will take on a personality
with all the hard work you've done, I thinks it ready.

Looking awesome...just missing one very important element... tiki. Remember this isn't AwesomeBackyardBarCentral.com, its TikiCentral.com.

That's a tough job, our daughter is an RN, she loves her job, she has tried ER, a heart hospital, ICU and a few others. She is now doing Hospice, the only one she refuses to try is working with kids/baby's, I can't blame her for that.

A good Nurse is more important than the doc in many cases.

After your 16 and 17 years doing what you did you could easily do some carpentry, just be careful to keep all the fingers and other parts you will need later.

I feel compelled to second that -- this is one of the best water features I've ever seen.

Ha that's funny, but true.

I have tried but not successfully, I need to find something better to try on. I did need a pole behind the bar to hold more hammocks, they seem to be very popular. So instead of just sticking a pole out there I tried carving a design in the pole. The top design is with a router, from there down was done with a chainsaw, should have stuck with the chainsaw it came out better.

Still sucks, try not to laugh (much) I need a big piece of regular wood that's not 20 years old treated and hard as nails, then I can try again.
