Has anyone ever used SketchUp before? I think I'm going to download it tonight and try to plan out how I want my bar to look.

I've used it before. Learning curve was a too steep when I tried it years ago so I just drew it out on paper

I'm very impressed Corey. What did you seal it with? How soft does the top of it feel?

3 coats of oil based polyurethane. It doesn't feel soft at all. You can't dig a fingernail into it or anything like you would before the poly.

That's great. Our cheap table from the store that shall not be mentioned is so soft that it leaves marks in the wood when using a pen to write on paper.

Turned out really good. Probably because of having a table saw available to use.

You didn't use the table saw for this? Kept all the top planks at factory width?

One last question, can you even feel the cracks between the boards after sealing it?

Yes you can. The poly doesn't affect the cracks that much. To not have the cracks you'd have to have perfect boards with perfect 90s on the edges. I was considering attempting this with the table saw but didn't think I'd do a good job with it so I left them and went for the more rustic feel.

Or super thick sealant?

90 degrees are what table saws are for! You could have done it.

Got a new to me tool chest today and got my tools all organized. They were mostly strewn about the bottom of my work bench and would get coated with sawdust anytime I used the saw. Still want to get some bins to put the bigger power tools in and put them on the bottom of the work bench. Right now they are just on a wire rack. Image

Looks great and clean. Too clean....like you don't have any tools. This would explain why you didn't chat all night. Busy buying and organizing.

Did you try to haggle after the guy was an hour late?
