Circular Bar by Woodgrain Woodworks at

The location of this custom bar in a customer’s home posed a special challenge for Alan Dunn of Woodgrain Woodworks. He writes: “On its door side is the kitchen. On each side is the dining room and living room. It faces the entry and a hall leading to the bedrooms. It is literally the hub of the house. The position of this bar called for a totally different approach to bar layout.” This circular bar features a central axis that supports lazy susans at different levels designed for custom storage and easy access, as well as a light activated by the motion of the lazy susans.
