I had a customer that needed Bar top, stair treads and shelves made from wood. The wood is Pedunculate Oak or more commonly known as English or French Oak.

Bar top is made from 5 cm (2 inch) oak and from the sides I added 2.5 cm (1 inch) boards so that it appears thicker. It is done this way because the customer changed his mind once the top was already made and wanted for it to look thicker. This was the best way to do it.

Stair treads are also made from 5 cm (2 inch) oak and have a little design (which is probably not too visible) in the front.

Shelves are made from 2.5 cm (1 inch) oak and simply cut to match the metal frame.

Everything is stained with water-based stain and the color is Rustic Oak.

I really like that bar top. Even before it was painted, it looks great. Can’t really tell much about the stairs or shelves except you did a lot of cutting. I’m sure you had a happy customer

When I was reading the description, I thought painted? Please no! But the pics tell a different story, I think you meant stained?

Excellent work!

Yep the customer was more than happy. They liked it very much.

And yeah everything was stained not painted. English is not my native language and thus some errors can happen.

Thanks both of you for comments.
