Reclaimed Joists turned into bartop

Installed bartop

This bartop was made from reclaimed joists removed from an old factory building in Gowanus during a renovation. The couple I did the bar from live just a block from the building I rescued them from. The pictures show the joists before being planed down and cleaned up; cutting the joinery for the bow-tie joint that prevents further checking; and after many coats of finish was applied.
