The 'Original' Lantern Tavern.
In Spokane, Washington's Perry District.
I designed and built this small tavern from extremely old

on the table saw and is constructed from five parts.
Also having a background in commercial sound, I integrated
the house sound system into the cabinetry as well.
This bar was designed after my barnwood coffee table
and that's why it has the wedged tenons on each side.
