prepping vertical moldings. these pieces will trim the ends, corners and seams in the plywood in base of bar. this is simply 1x3 pine boards cut to 45deg. angles, sanded, one coat of golden oak + one coat of mahogany. I found that the mahogany stain on raw pine would get too dark almost instantly. by "sealing" the wood with the golden oak stain first, it was much easier to get the red/mahogany look I was going for.
The first picture showing your PJ mounted at that precarious angle really had me worried for a second! But I forgot all about that as soon as I saw your insulation. Last thing I want to do is worry you unnecessarily, but having recently suffered through a pretty serious mold remediation project (disgusting details early in my build thread if you're foolish enough to look), I just hope to heck that black color throughout your insulation is NOT mold!
sweet remodel--love the bar! i wish i had the knowledge and skill to do a project like that myself--fortunately my basement came finished so all i had to do was install the gear and screen...also love that clock--where did you get that?
brrrrrr...its cold up there in buuuurlin!! Im way down in the balmy new boston area
really impressed with your build. Im sure you and yours will enjoy it. Best wishes for a happy new year
