Hi everybody, my name is Jared and I'm finally living in one place long enough to build a bar (something I've wanted to do for a while). Anyway, I want to put a copper top on it but need some help. I've looked at a few threads on here and saw some awesome ones and I need to know how to do it.
This is what I have so far. I'd like to put a nice copper top on it with dark stained wood trim around the sides. My current questions are:
1) Where should I get the copper? There is an industrial metal place near me that has sheets of copper, but they have fine lines in them, from the roller I guess. I want it more shiny. Can these buff out?
2) How do I attach the copper to the bar?
3) Whats the best way for the copper to meet the wood trim? ie should the copper go all the way to the edge of the base plywood then the trim over it, or should the trim go on the base plywood and the edge of the copper butt against it?n
Thanks in advance and if there is anymore explaining I need to do let me know. Thanks to everyone who have put so much great info on here already!
