Having finished the lower level of the bar counter it was time to start building up the bar back and the actual bar top. For the bar back I found an excellent old rustic fire place surround to use. The only things missing were a bottle step and a mirror. Keeping the same vintage Jarrah and pine theme, I knocked up a bottle step to fit inside the gap of the bar back.
Once I had that done it was time to start to start building up the fascia between the bar counter and the bar top.
On top of that went a thick layer of pine to act as the first layer of the bar top.
Time for a test fit for the bar back. I picked up a 900 x 900mm mirror from Bunnings and fixed it to the back of the fire place surround to act as the bar back. To finish it off I knocked up a pine border for the mirror, once again keeping with the theme of the pine / Jarrah contrast.
Shaping up well.
The bar is really starting to take shape, continuing the jarrah and pine combination looks really good. Looks like you missed your true calling in life and the sign is a ripper.
