Finished with Envirotex these will fit right in with the décor at the Evergreen Lodge in Yosemite, Ca. They will get some elbow grease using 600 grit very lightly and #000 steel wool to bring them down from a high gloss to a satin finish. One piece is 14” wide and 120” long bar top. All the rest are 30” wide with one 120” long, [email protected]”, [email protected]”, [email protected]”, [email protected]” round no live edge and [email protected]” round also no live edge. They are being mounted on heavy metal bases with the 10’ top getting three the 6’ top having two and all the rest needing only one weighted base. I will be delivering 18 of them in two days. All this material was milled from salvage logs. I will make a couple more just to have available for craft shows this summer.

You can see in one photo the Black Oak display cabinet in the background. It has lights mounted in the top with glass doors and shelves for the upper section and raised panel doors for the lower section. This is all solid Oak, no plywood and also milled from salvage logs.

Or does a true craftsman never “join and tell”? HA! :)

The cedar is beautiful. The display cabinet needs it’s own post with multiple pictures.

Thanks Treebones. I wanna try the Envirotex. I’m also using 000 and 600-1000grits for turning things.
How do you move those pieces? They look heavy.
