Copper Bar Top – The Distressing Process

Installing a copper bar top recently was one of the most challenging jobs we’ve ever done. It’s quite labour intensive, total focus, patience and precision are absolute musts.

As mentioned previously, the copper bar top turned out great, but that ultimately was not the look desired by this job. It was to be distressed.

This is picture preparing the existing top for the copper –

We then prepared the bar top for the distressing process… The distressing process involves spreading sea salt and warm white vinegar liberally. After 20 minutes generously apply Coke or Pepsi to the bar top. That’s it – seriously!

Here’s the finished result –

We’re very happy with how these copper bar tops turned out – it really is a focal point of this bar!

Custom Made Liquor Rack

We’re proud to have done work at The Wurst Bar in Ypsilanti Michigan. It’s a great bar with incredible unique food and an interesting beer board. If you ever have the chance to eat there, we highly recommend it.

Here’s a metal liquor rack that we created for them.

Custom Gazebo

I recently revisited a custom gazebo/permanent sunshade that we built 2 years ago. I’m happy to say that it’s still looking great!

Work Safety Platform

It’s true that we create a lot of custom made industrial metal fabrication. In an industrial workplace, there is nothing more important than worker safety – and that’s when pre-fab often just won’t do.

Here is a custom made work safety platform that we recently were contracted to create for a Windsor, Ontario shop:

If we can help your shop, please reach out to us at 226-347-9778 or email us sunsetmetal24@gmail.com.

Until next time, be safe,
