This reclaimed oak bar is a perfect example of the beauty, creativity, and flexibility that defines custom cabinet building. The customer approached us with some ideas and a few pictures of features that he wanted in his bar. We worked closely with him to design cabinets that would maximize his space well. We took into account window and beam locations, etc. He wanted two TV screens placed in the upper cabinets, so we created space for those. We built “barrel” arches into the cabinets around each window. We had custom arched mirrors made for several of the arched sections. Half-inch-thick adjustable glass shelves easily support glasses and bottles. Black “bird cage” style knobs and pulls from Berenson Hardware accent the rustic wood cabinetry.
We built the bar top from a nineteen-foot-long, three-inch-thick slab of black walnut. We mitered the three pieces together, leaving a beautiful “live edge” on the outside. The top is finished with multiple layers of clear epoxy for an extremely durable finish that looks and feels like glass. We also supplied the granite countertops for the rest of the cabinets.
