Envirotex lists furniture polish as a cleaner if I'm not mistaken

Used a little furniture polish. Wow...slick now!

I did notice my growler/lamp was putting these tinny dents in the top. You couldn't really seem them, but could feel them. The grower has a ring of ridges along the bottom that are fairly sharp. I removed the lamp and after about two day the dents were gone. So I used double sided tape and attached a coaster to the bottom of the growler. That seems to work fine.

Tho I'm not totally happy with the growler. It is fat and low. I'm thinking of going wine bottle. Or even a beer bomber.

Small project. I put new material on the bar stools. I actually have two slightly different types of bar stools and the fabric was slightly different and was showing age. So found some inexpensive stuff at Hobby Lobby and threw it on. Not thrilled about the floral, but like the color and it was cheap. Plus all chairs now match,

Superb job on the table! It really turned out awesome. I've been using Windex for years on my Etex bar top without any problems.

Anyone ever had success removing scratches from the ETEX'd surface ?

You can check their web site and Google, but I believe I read where very fine sandpaper will do it. And if needed, you can pour another thin coat.

Thanks, I'm very pleased. I could have done a better job. But I'm really happy. Especially since it is pretty close to 3/4" thick!

I've made a new lamp for the table. Since I used so many Fat Tire tops, I made a lamp out of a bomber bottle.



Then up on my bar one of my favorite wines,

there was a recent episode on mancaves where they did a beer top table. it looked like the just pushed down the tops while pouring the finish over it. really weird. I can't imagine doing that .

anyways, Sdallnct you did a very nice job! I had thought about doing something similar many many years ago. (probably before i thought it was possible).. anyone here remember when you could save pepsi caps & turn them in by weight for gifts?? If I didn't run in my box of them, I probably would still have them to do a table (btw, I got a tv for them)

Thanks, and the gluing of the caps is an issue. If you look close the top is so clear you can see some of the glue. And on a few caps the glue broke lose and they floated. I was able to push them down.

Assuming your using black paint, I'm thinking something like black grout or black tile set. Put on thick and set the caps in firmly and let set good. This should also help minimize bubbles.

Where the hell is the Like button on this site? Nice job!

Figured I would cross post my new build. I would have loved to have a pub style bar like many of you have, but it just wouldn't work for the rest of my gameroom and home.


I recycled the granite from a neighbors home that was throwing it away on bulk trash pick up day. I grabbed the mini fridge from lowes during a dorm room sale for $89. Threw up some RTA cabinets and laid the tile myself.

Hello Sdallnct.... Love this thread. I searched all over and i can't seem to find the brand of the cherry red stain you used on your bar. It is absolutely stunning. I really like the cap table as well.
