Counter for a local restaurant

I have not updated my work site for a while, was super busy. I have just completed a project for a local restaurant nearby. The owner wanted a service counter, something that would function as a customer service/cashier piece. Made out or reclaimed wood (mostly) and within the theme of the dining room.

I have made a frame out of purchased timber, added some good quality plywood for the inner walls.

After that it was the time to plank the walls and internal shelves with some rustic wood, glue, nails and level-that is pretty important, if you do not control the level, you might find yourself off on one end, and the whole wall looks crooked.

We have decided that the split level will come with a wooden top, no food or water will be serving over that part, so reclaimed wood, stain and varnish will be a spot on option.

The split level is to serve as a back wall for a till, and to keep some items out of the customer way. I think this is a very functional design, looks nice as well.

All piece was varnished and lightly sanded through with some 800 grid to give this nice, rustic appearance, one coat of teak oil was applied at the end.

 

The only thing that is still to be installed, is a stone top, for the part where food will be handled, dark stone I believe is the choice, I will get some pictures soon, a lot better quality as well.

And this is how the whole project looks like inside of the restaurant. It was placed on small concrete blocks, to avoid contact with water and harsh, floor chemicals. Black, cool looking stone was installed on the part where food is served. Really nice piece, at the new, super tasty Caribbean joint, just opened in Welling, London.
