    Mahogany Bar

    This residential mahogany bar was fun to build. Overall it stands about 10ft high, including the header which is about 20ft long x 12" high. The main overhead header is about 5ft in diameter. There is a corresponding header on the opposing wall with a 30" clear hole through both headers for a potted tree to extend through. The decorative filler on the bar and header is hammered copper and brass (by others). The trick to this bar was the curved bullnoses and half rounds made on a curve. The finish is a NGR red mahogany methanol based dye with clear lacquer finish.

    Thanks to all that have responded. It's nice to have feedback.

    Materials for the bar included Mahogany plywood, veneer, and solid wood. I ordered three planks of 12/4 Mahogany that were 20" wide, 18' long. Much of the moulding was from solid wood. For the curved/bent sections, they were done with bent laminations.

    Here is a better picture of WIP:
