Next time some basic framework in the back before sealing the top then taking a break on the project.

Thanks for looking!

Thx, “Neimth.” Couldn’t have said it better myself!

Break means I’m not charging into drawer making. It might mean the project is done when the current plans for top finish and backside cleanup is complete. Got other things pressing on my list of things to do! Thx, Ken!

Congratulations.
How wonderful and what a lot of work you have put into the rebirth.
What is it going to be used for now? Do you have a plan with it?
Been fun to follow, thanks.
Well done.
Best thoughts,

That is a amazing transformation. Well done. I think it would be better to have the beer taps come through a back wall rather than drill through that top.
