Re: My latest Pallet bar

Hey @Yorky88,

 

Do you ever finish these yourself or do you always leave that up to the customer?

Re: My latest Pallet bar

Great question @Jason so this is one of my bars that I hire out and what I have found is that my customers prefer the rustic look over the stain/ varnished finish so generally all I do is sand it so the main surfaces are smooth and splinter free. It’s the same for most of my builds. If a customer asks for me to finish the product a certain way then I am more than happy to that that’s fine but what I have found when I give the customer a quote as to how much it will cost them for the raw product and then for the completely finished product they are generally happy to finish it themselves.

Re: Another work in progress. I’d love to hear how people think I should finish this piece????

Hey @Yorky88

if you are still wondering how to finish it, maybe you could sand the top back and stain it a few different shades of brown or whateva, to make the pattern stand out.....

just som ideas
