Each material offers its own distinct characteristics that can be used to enhance the aesthetic appeal of a given space. For instance, granite is known for its strength and durability while hardwood offers an elegant look that will never go out of style. “Starlight White” quartzite can breathe life and light into any room with its subtle blend of white and gray colors among scattered mirror pieces. For those looking for a classic look with more durability, Myers also works with reclaimed woods such as pine or oak that are perfect for creating warm rustic bar tops. 

Regardless of which material you choose for your bar top, Myers will work with you to create something truly special. 

Woodworking Styles

Myers applies a variety of wood styles to create bars or pieces for other commercial spaces. We work with clients to select from several different woods, including walnut, oak, cherry, maple and even exotic woods like ebony and rosewood, which can be incorporated into design elements for added sophistication or boldness depending on the desired look.

One of the most popular styles of wood used by Myers is hardwood. Hardwoods such as cherry and mahogany have a timeless beauty, making them perfect for traditional style bars. These woods are strong and durable, able to stand up to the demands of a bustling restaurant or bar atmosphere. With their natural grain patterning, they lend beauty and elegance to any space.  Softwoods such as cedar can also be used in custom creations from Myers. Cedar is often employed to create accents that add character and charm to bars due to its warm color tones and grains. Softwood pieces can also add texture and visual interest when combined with other woods.

Finishes can range from traditional to modern. One popular finish is distressing which gives the wood a rustic look that’s perfect for creating homey atmospheres. And if you’re looking for something truly unique? Myers can also insert custom designs such as logos or other symbols into the woodwork itself! 

We employ several techniques during the construction process, including sanding, routing, planing, carving, staining/finishing, mortising/tenoning, gluing/clamping, cutting/shaping joints, polishing surfaces and protecting against moisture damage by applying finishing sealer coats where necessary. This ensures each piece will last throughout years of heavy use while preserving its original beauty as well as protecting it from moisture damage due to spills or condensation build-up over time.

Bar Accents

Bar accents are another area where we excel in producing beautiful designs. Pieces can be inserted as a decorative addition or even part of the main structure of the bar itself. Our clients can choose from different styles such as shaker-inspired cabinets, traditional raised panel doors and slab door designs. Whether it’s an eye-catching backsplash, carved columns, decorative moldings or hand-crafted railings and cabinets, these pieces can transform even the most basic bar into a stunning display.
