the understudy bar

FINISHED / October 2016


Thirty-three feet of Illinois Black Walnut greet you as you descend the stairs. The Understudy Bar is Columbia, Missouri's newest venue, and perhaps it’s most unique. I was commissioned in 2016 to design and build “an awesome, unique bar to be a centerpiece for the new space.”

The final result is just that. Nowhere else in the country will you find a bar top as spectacular as this—two Black Walnut boards end joined to create the most beautiful 30 feet you will ever see.
