The New Bar

The new patio bar took its place on the deck this weekend. Have to say, I'm quite pleased. It started out as a gazebo frame we really didn't like - tacky flowers anyone? - and took down five years ago. I cut the frame apart with a jigsaw, and a test-fit the pieces on the deck to come up with the perfect proportions. (Which is one of the absolute best things about building custom - you get to build stuff to fit just where you want it to with no compromises.) Redwood top and shelves, with vintage enamel basins (eBay finds) inset into the prep shelf. Priced similar outdoor bars in a few catalogs, and $2,000 is a reasonable price. This cost less than $300 - redwood was the biggest expense so far. Tequila costs have yet to be calculated...

  2. A lot of of the

    things you point out happens to be astonishingly

    appropriate and it makes me wonder why I hadn't

    looked at this in this light previously. Your piece truly did

    switch the light on for me as far as this particular

    subject matter goes. Nonetheless there is just one point I am not really too cozy with

    so whilst I attempt to reconcile that with the core theme of the issue, let me see just what the

    rest of the visitors have to say.Well done.
