Got the foot rail on the bar. I tried making the supports from wood but that didn't work as the wood split so I cut them from mat board and drilled holes through them.
Then I stained them to match the wood.
Put a skinny skewer painted with my gold Pilot pen through the support holes and glued the supports to the bar.
There are probably a few more little things I will eventually think of to add to this but for now I'm declaring it finished. All the furniture is glued in place.
In May of last year when I finished the detective's office which is set in the 40s, my intention was to do the bar below as a friendly neighbourhood bar during the war years. Had a "Careless Talk Brings Tragedy in Wartime" poster to go above the telephone and planned on hanging a map of Europe and pictures of all my family members who served in the Armed Forces on the walls.
But if I went that route then I had to figure out how to deal with liquor rationing, etc. And the brass foot rail would have been lost to a scrap drive...so I decided against that idea.
So here's the finished set of rooms:
Pictures of the entire project from beginning to end can be seen here.
Still need to get two pieces of plexiglass to cover the fronts of the rooms.
