    We Finished that Bar and My Aplogies....

    For posting it all over the internet and forgetting here.

    Folks, we did not go to Switzerland.

    Long story......

    As for a Vacation, Well they just won't leave us alone.

    I hate to say don't answer that phone.

    So here are a series of pics from the finished product.

    Sorry, and thanks for looking.

    Splendid job, Per. You guys make a great team. Is this bar in an Elks Lodge by any chance? Regardless of the location, it's definitely a one-of-a-kind bar.

    (And from the looks of the pics, Bob cleans up pretty nice. What happened to you?)

    Beautiful work... to all the family. The bar would look even better if you were testing the draft while you checked the leaning quality of the bar...

    You, and your Dad have created another example of "Old World Craftsmanship". Absolutely awesome, and something the Lodge and their members will enjoy for decades. It's really hard to come with words to express how impressed I am...
