Trying to get all of the construction done so we can start having guests drink at the Maya Tai Lounge. Since we only have five seats at the bar, started working on some belly bars (bar height cocktail tables). I took two 4x4s and cut them to 40" tall, then drew, routed, & torched all four sides:
Then stained it:
Next up will be adding the table tops and outrigger feet (to keep it upright).
Finished working on the small shelf to hold tiki bowls. I originally planned to build my own bar stools, then found a bunch of cool ones on craigslist. I held onto a frame of legs I built for a sample stool- I liked the simple design (w/ angled front of legs) then added cross supports. The shelves are made of recycled pallet wood rescued from my office park. I torched all the wood after shooting it all together. One of Grog's bowl lives on the top floor:
I also added a small hanging piece of bamboo to hold pendants. These hang above the bowl shelf opposite the bar. I used chain to drop the bamboo down from an existing shelf, then looped the pendants onto it.
Not an exciting photo, but here are a few pendants hanging. Next up hanging up a few small spotlights to highlight some art, a few more frames to hang....
Thanks for looking.
