    I just need soem steel I ordered to come in.

    Here is where I was when I started this afternoon.





    I only need to put 3 more panels in and paint it.

    It's finished!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I called off from work yesterday so I cold get it finished before heading Rauch Creek for some four wheeling. I busted my ass and got it finished. It turned out better than I thought it ever would.
    I ended up going with stainless for the work counter top.

    Here are some pics with all the sheet metal in place.









    Here is the work surface in place. I am testing how well liquid nails bonds to stainless in background there.



    It seems to work well enough.



    The stainless is in place. I have my ar/co2 bottle holding down a part that did not want to behave.





    I put a texture down on the stainless. That part turned out awesome.



    Loading it up on the trailer for transport was pretty interesting as well as unloading it in the middle of Forbes Ave in Squrill Hill during rush hour.



    Here it is in it's new home.





    Here we were doing a little "real world testing" of the bar.




    I will get some high res pictures up on monday after I get back from Rauch Creek.

    Very nice work!

    It's funny how things can go from looking like 'WTH is that' to 'Wow - that is pretty cool' so rapidly!

    I am impressed!

    Looks killer! I really like the contrast of the steel with the wood floor in the shop. I didn't notice the nice wide drawer before - I really like that feature.

    Re: Coffee Bar

    I was wondering if that was going to be a drawer but I didn't want to look like an idiot asking.....even though I am used to looking like an idiot, it doesn't make it easy....

    I am still a bit lost on the sprocket pivot thingy - what is the porpose of the sprocket delio? Was that just an attachment point for the top or??? Confusion runs my life.....

    The sprockets and pedals are just for looks. I wanted the sprockets to be functional, so I put a little extra work in to mounting them.
