You have mail Liquor Cabinet and Bonnie and Clyde BarNovember 24th, 2013 in member junk
This was a project that pretty much dictated to me what it was going to become. When it became apparent that liquor bottles fit in the mail slots it was a done deal. I built the cabinet first fashioning light boxes out of recycled Cor-Ten steel. Cor-Ten rusts over time and becomes its own proitective coating. It can also be accelerated with a mild acid wash.
After I hung it on the wall it begged for a bar to go with it... I got lucky snooping around a garage and found this 20's windshield with its main hinge and wiper still intact! Again the item dictated shat it was to become and there you have it, the Bonnie and Clyde bar.
In a dark room it has a great glow and the shadow created by the cracked glass is pretty cool. Useful and great to look at.
