I have built the bar top of the breakfast bar. It is made from khaya, a type of mahogany. The design idea for the bar is that the top surface wraps vertically at the end of the cabinetry, forming a miter at the transition. The grain runs continuously around the corner. To get the width and thickness I needed, I glued smaller pieces together. The bar top is 17.75 inches wide, 10 feet long, and 1.5 inches thick.
