We were recently contacted by a Royal Wootton Bassett resident who, having seen some of our work, asked whether we could build a drinks bar. After some further discussion it became apparent that this was to be an outdoor unit as the client was in the catering trade and would use the facility for entertaining.
Phil took on the project and through a few meetings, steered the customer through the development process to come to a suitable design with appropriate measurements.
The client originally requested the bar to have a painted finish, but again, after discussion it was agreed that the timber receive an outdoor treatment that would leave the timber in its natural looking state.
The pictures attached show the various stages of construction, up to its' completion and with Phil as acting barman.
Just before handing over the bar, the same resident also asked if we could make a chopping board for fruit for drinks, etc.
"Any old plank will do" was the comment made by the client. Hah! Any old plank indeed! For something like this you cant use 'any old plank'. In fact the board was made from British Red Cedar and treated with 'food safe' mineral oil to enhance and protect.
