Rustic Restaurant Bar Design Ideas – For a breakfast bar with a difference, think about using reclaimed wood: it has tons of character dilapidated. Smart owners charmingly rustic space used their old floor boards to dress the island. Photos of the u-shaped dining industry in a small kitchen with a sink in the London house, a gray cabinets, wood countertops, stainless steel appliances, hardwood floors painted, an island, raised-panel cabinets, backsplash and white subway tile backsplash. Height optimal from the perspective of sitting at the commercial wooden bar designs may be too low for those standing around the pool table, trying to look over the heads of the audience sitting at rustic bar design ideas. It is for this reason that you usually see on television commercial bars and restaurants are located near the ceiling – they must be easily seen from various perspectives. The inspiration for the basement full of contemporary buried with gray walls and light wood floors. Lischkoff use the same paint on almost all the walls and ceilings throughout the house. A signature color, blue, running consistently from room to room. The kitchen has a sleek style of a bar in a chic restaurant. Because it is so open to other rooms, Lischkoff do not want to look too kitchen. This is a very high performance kitchens often have two or three people cooking at once, but has a more relaxed feel. Must like: innovative wood stools.
All right. So I did mention this is a full wood bar, which means we’re going to be using some great quality would, starting with a 3/4-inch piece of ply. You’re going to need about three sheets of that. Then we’re going to use something for the decorative elements called figured ply, which is just a little thicker. And it’s actually solid wood. And Rob will tell us more about that in just a little bit. You’re also going to need no stain for this, no paint. We’re going straight up shellac. We’re going with that amber shellac. And we’ll talk about that in a little bit, too. And you’re going to want some denatured alcohol just in case you get the shellac anywhere else. Like my fingers were completely yellow earlier. So that helped out a lot. Now, you’re also going to need this bad boy here. This is a corbel. All right. And this is a solid wood element made with a decorative scroll. That’s going to actually act as an accent for our bar. OK. So these are the basic materials. You don’t need too much.
Now, keep in mind, if that’s too expensive for you because birch sometimes, the finished birch can be a little expensive, you can always opt for a lesser-grade wood. Now, as far as tools, you’re going to need a wide array of tools for this, starting with your circular saw. If you have a table saw, that’s definitely going to help you make those larger cuts because this bar that we made is completely ginormous. It’s about six foot long by, I don’t know, about three foot tall. All right. So get yourself a circular. You’re going to want a nail gun, a router, a sanding device, and a couple drills. All right. We’re creating a pretty beefy bar at six feet long by two feet deep. So first we need to make a solid base structure for this bar using 3/4-inch birch plywood. So we cut and assemble two sides, a top, bottom, and front, and tacked it all together. To give it a flawless appearance, we attach the pieces using pocket-hole joinery which hides your screws in the back of the boards. Once that’s assembled, we sanded it all down, flipped it on its side, and put on the casters. Now we’re ready to move on to the front. Using 3/4-inch figured birch, which is a more decorative finishing birch, we created something that looks a lot like two picture frames next to each other, which creates depth and a decorative element to the front. Then we put on some beautiful wood corbels and route out a decorative edge for the bar top.
Now we’re almost ready to belly up to the bar. That’s right. We are almost there. So we’re going to finish this up live. And joining me in the studio is our resident carpenter extraordinaire, rolling in the bar, Mr. Rob North. What’s up, pal? Hey, hey, hey. Good to see you, man. Heck of a job on this bad boy. It’s not finished yet, folks. So if you’re wondering where the actual serving top is, hold your horses. All right, Rob, let’s go through this, deconstruct, because this was a monstrosity. Let’s go over dimensions first. Absolutely, absolutely. What we have here is a bar that is, in fact, six feet wide, 42 inches tall, which is standard bar height. Right. 36 inches tall back here which is standard countertop height. That’s right. And 24 inches deep. OK. And then what we’re missing here is the actual serving element. That’s going to be about, I don’t know, about 9 or 10 inches? A total of 16. 16, but it’s going to jet off about nine inches. About nine inches over the overhang. OK. Cool. So let’s start with adding some of the bells and whistles on this. Now, to get this finish, as I mentioned earlier, we used shellac. Now, I’m typically a stain fan. I like to get the grain in there and use maybe reds. And I was thinking for this project we would go with kind of a redwood look for it. Then Rob suggested shellac, which is not typical in my world. But as a woodworker, you work with it often. Yeah. As a matter of fact, I try to stay away from stains. Stains can be muddy. They can muddy the grain. And if that, you know-Who likes a muddy grain? Yeah. I don’t like a muddy grain. I don’t think anybody does. But what shellac does is it lends an antique quality.
