Building the Back Bar for Ruffles & Rust Square No. 2

We were planning on moving into our new space today at R & R Square but the snow just kept coming! We now have about 14 inches of snow and it's still snowing. Since we couldn't get up the driveway we decided to head up the to shop and build the new back bar for R & R Square.

First we picked out some nice boards for the top which were reclaimed bat and board siding, the wood for the frame was found in a barn over in Lakewood. We always use salvaged and reclaimed wood whenever possible to give each piece a one of a kind look.

Then we ran them through the planer.......

Next comes the frame and legs..............

Lots and lots of sanding, nailing and lag bolting to shore the frame up and make it nice and                   sturdy for all of those large purchases that will be made at R & R Square No. 2!

Then the tops are set in place and screwed down..........................

This amazing back bar is ready for delivery to R & R Square! Timi and Annie are going to decide how it will be finished, maybe just waxed or oiled or possibly painted. Thanks Tim and Annie for creating this one of a kind store for everyone to enjoy! We are so excited to be a part of it!

Oh and in between sanding I managed to build a pussy willow wreath that will be in our space soon.
