Pop and I built this cherry bar for hall of fame pitcher Bruce Sutter. Great guy, one of those people that love everything you do. I wish all our customers were like him! Nowadays it seems like most people don’t appreciate the time and labor that goes into a project like this. Sutter was a little different! and a pleasure to work for.
This bar is built with solid cherry tops, true raised panels, custom moldings andcompletely fabricated in our shop.

Finish is a lacquer spray on everything but the bar tops which is a spray conversion varnish

A beautiful sturdy job. I have been building my bar on & off for 5 or 6 years, will finish it one day. What finish did you use on the bar top Bryan ?.

What a great project to be allowed to do. It looks like Hall of Fame Craftsmen built it for a Hall of Fame Player.

Fantastic looking project – I like the website also, but the “peanut butter & Jelly” is a completer pain! I could not turn it off
