The looooong mahogany bar.

With the right surface preparation and finishing, wood furniture and cabinets will have a stunning look and last a lifetime.  But the right preparation takes a lot of time.  It can only be done by hand.  Lots of hand sanding.  Flawless finishing like a varnish or lacquer cannot be applied by rookies; it takes years of experience, fluid body motions, and keen senses.  Our craftsmen have decades of experience, and our products are made at an unhurried pace.  This is the opposite of what mammoth off-shore furniture factories practice.

The picture above is just one panel of a loooooooong bar.  Made of mahogany with a waterproof clear coat, this bar is 16 feet in length.  This finished piece will be sanded, sprayed, dried, sanded again, sprayed again, and dried again – for a total of three coats.

Below is our finishing room in action.  Here our senior expert finisher, Lis, applies another coat.  This is done in our well lit, well ventilated, finishing room.  Lis makes fine adjustments to her spray gun not only by adjusting the air pressure, but by listening to the sound it makes.  Then she sets up the work at a particular height so that she can walk and spray the entire surface in one pass.  All senses are involved.

Before we deliver it to our customer, we assembled the entire bar in our workshop to ensure it comes together exactly as designed.  Below is the 16 foot long bar assembled in our workshop.  It is details like this that set Brunarhans apart.  The curved bar rail and bar countertop are made of mahogany, and each of them is a solid piece of continuous length of mahogany.  There are no glued joints along the full length of the front of the bar!

Then we disassemble it, wrap it in furniture blankets, and carefully deliver it with our white glove service.  Below is an AutoCAD drawing  of the full bar, designed by our in house design staff.
