Final touch on the concrete countertops - solid pine medallions made from a 5 x 9 slab reclaimed from a pile of debris in a warehouse. New blades in the Dewalt made planer work a breeze. The medallions are 3-1/2” thick and 8” round. Finished in tinted linseed oil to match the color of walnut.

Donna @ 28 broadway is officially open for business! Concrete counters came out better than expected, floors are *antiqued* and oiled, plaster work on the ceiling is beautiful, and the bar is fully stocked! Excellent work by Alex, Eduardo, Dan, and Jonah - we have a great crew.

Before and after at Telepan Local. Precision Innovations built out Telepan quite a while ago and the historic society said “if you touch part of the facade you need to finish the entire facade.” We had to custom fabricate doors in the shop to match the original doors to the right. Solid poplar from Dykes lumber. My first time using the Festool Domino XL and OF1400. Worked flawlessly. Couldn’t have worked at this location without the festool equipment. The active restaurant was very concerned about dust and general site conditions and we were able to keep the site nearly dust free for the three days we were on site. Many thanks to my great team!

Tackling a historic facade in lower Manhattan. Glad we’ve got a few Festool RO 90’s and Ct 26 or two. Dust free and capturing as much of that lead paint as possible. Picked up
5 gallons of exterior grade linen white from Abbot Paint on Eagle St.

Here’s the bar top after the final pour!  Once it’s fully cured we’ll test fit the ice bins and tap handles.

Form for the new concrete bar is finished and ready for concrete. Used PVC for the edge banding. The drains, tap, and ice trays are all blocked out. We back-cut a kerf to make it flexible (reminds me of the support inside an acoustic guitar).

Getting ready to pour and finish a new concrete bar and complete the plaster work on the ceiling before tackling the refinish of the floors. #brook

First time using the Carvex.  Cutting stainless prep tables down.  So far it cuts super clean on the bullnose but can’t be kept in track once I’m past that.
