So I went to visit a old friend of mine in Eastern Oregon. Its about a 17 hr drive for me. I usually do something for him while Im there. this time His wife wanted a built in bar. So I loaded the tool up in the truck and off I went.

I set up shop in his shop/garage and built this on site.

The project not really finished, but my portion is. I built it and He is supposed get the glass for the doors installed and the upper gets glass shelving.

The carcasses are shop maple the F/F and doors are red oak stains with a Mohawk finishes OB wipe on golden oak stain. It was the only one I could find that matched his existing golden oak kitchen and other things. Jimbo seems to like golden oak. I finished/top coated it with GF Enduro coatafter letting the OB stain thoroughly dry. I used a test piece to make sure the stain was dry before applying the top coat.

No shims were needed of install as it was built pretty darned close to the wall to give it a good fit.

Anyway this was built entirely on site 17 hrs from my shop.

Oh yea Jims going to get a mirror for the back wall in between the upper and lower cabinet.
