FINALLY!!! With the help of two great friends, I finally installed the custom bar I have been working on. It has been a challenge finding a weekend we were all available, not to mention that the client moved during the construction, which led to some creative adjustments in the overall look of the bar.
At the end of the day, I'm happy with how it looks, and I'm sure my friend is going to have a lot of fun with it, and create lasting memories with family and friends sharing a drink around his custom bar.
The client plans on finishing the top with concrete. I'll be sure to post updated pictures when he does.
