      Well it has been dead for a while when it is harvested and it was outdoors all of that time...

        Lighted bar risers serve a sinister purpose.

        The lighting generates heat and warms the bottles.

        Warm booze on ice extends the pour.

          The bluish hue is from a fungus that forms in the tree after the beetles kill it.
          It's still cheap pine, soft pine.

              woodford's is okay, but tell that savage to buy some Maker's. Reg'lar or 46 is just fine.

                Spar varnish is about as durable a finish hobbyists can get for ease of application.

                Epoxy is available but a serious pain in the ass.

                Polyester is what I would use as a professional.

                  I remember polyester leisure suits. I may or may not have had one.

                    Polyurethane?

                      High proof liquors will cut in to it.

                      Spar varnish once cured is more resistant than typical poly.

                        Polyester is a commercial grade finish that gives everything that dipped in plastic look, builds very fast and is extremely chemical resistant but like epoxy once its damaged you cannot repair it.

                        Modern pianos are all done in polyester.

                          Are you saying that my mixologist friend is trying to rip off her clientele? er.... Friends that get free booze?

                          The lights are LED though. Shouldn't generate all that much heat.

                              So, I pretty much did nothing this summer concerning woodworking. However, in the last week I finally finished this project and am starting my next one. Wanted to show you how it turned out.

                              Pics only. It's late, and I don't have time for captions.











































                              The finished product for my friend. The next one will be a 3 step one, but this one is going to be delivered to her next week. I love the choice of wood we did, and I love how the shellac brought out the chatoyance of the wood, especially the maple.

                                Damnit man. You can cook AND build stuff with wood. Marry me!

                                Now I have to figure out how to use chatoyance in conversation this week.

                                All kidding aside, nice work. I appreciate fine craftsmanship in anything.
