These custom made hardwood bar tops and restaurant tables are centerpieces at a local Chicago area brew pub. This recent installation of live edge rescued Ash bar tops and dining tables in rectangular and round shapes at Roaring Table Brewery in Lake Zurich, Illinois provides for durable and appealing commercial solid surfaces while introducing warmth to the industrial feel of the space. Theses live edge bar tops, table tops and the mantel were handcrafted from solid kiln dried White Ash hardwoods.

The main bar top is 32+ feet long including a lower serving station and features a waterfall on one end. The top was crafted from a custom cut log of Ash and the mitered and Walnut splined waterfall end is a perfect grain match. The live edge standing bar and mantel are from another Ash tree that also had succumbed to the terrible Emerald Ash Bore that is decimating the Ash population nationally. All hardwood were of course kiln dried to assure stability, quality and longevity.

The owners, Beth and Lane did a wonderful job with additional seating and bases that work well with the solid hardwood items and the table and bench bases we provided. The entire space is very appealing and were are certainly proud that our live edge tops and tables were a part of this exciting build out.
