Bow Front Bar


This one was a head scratcher! Built out of #2 white oak. The front radius is 63 1/2" the two ends have a 13 1/2" radius. Radius moldings and radius twisted moldings that were hand scratched using the shaper knife in a jig. The big cove mold at the top is brick layed and then hand shaped. The rails and base were also brick layed and then skinned with 1/16" thick material. Around 350 build hours in this one.

I'd rather be covered in sawdust

Very impressive job . Had to take a lot of skill and precision .


That is another amazing feat of woodworking and one that would leave most mortal woodworkers wondering how you did it. I am a big fan of your work and this is another exceptional piece.
