On a recent visit to Ober Woodworking I learned about three ways to make curves in wood: coopering, laminating and band sawing.  Dan used a technique called coopering to make curved panels for the base of the bar.  He laminated 1/4″ thick layers of mahogany to create the the frames for the curved panels and used a band saw to cut the bar rail from solid mahogany stock.  The bar also includes hand carved details at the column capitals and panels.
