I get a lot of business doing custom stainless countertops for local restaurants....

This one happens to be for a church with the kitchen in the basement.... Worked out to over 40 Lf of countertop....

Had to be made as a "bolt together" assembly to make it easier to get into the kitchen....

They wanted the sink bowl to have a drain board...

Just finished making it Friday and it gets installed tomorrow....

It's a big one...

They should be good for their upcoming Friday "Fish Fry" dinner...

Haven't posted in a while... It's been a crazy year in so many ways....

Just finished making a 10' long x 3" thick copper counter top that will accept an under mount sink bowl...

The trick is to preheat the copper...
