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 –

Metal Fabrication Solves Problems

It’s true; quality, custom metal fabrication solves problems and improves lives.

Here’s the situation….

Good friends of mine are huge Cleveland Browns fans (although that’s sad, that’s not the problem). They enjoy having friends over to play their bean bag toss game (aka: Cornhole).

Here’s the problem…

While playing Cornhole, the participants need a stable spot to hold drinks…

Cornhole challenges 1Often their cocktails are knocked over by their dog…

Cornhole challenges 2They knock over drinks themselves due to an errant bean bag toss, or laughing fit.

Cornhole challenges 4After the consumption of said cocktails, scorekeeping (and sometimes standing) becomes a challenge.

Rolling Computer Cart

It’s pretty darned handy owning a metal fabrication shop. Very often when we need a piece of equipment, we can just build it ourselves.
