    Anyway, I think I found a good compromise. My original prototype had a lower prep area which I replaced with a full shelf. So I scribed in a teak plank next to the slab and then inset some rubber bar rail with a router. I grew up in the Philly area, and although it wasn't a date, the Yuengling brewery was the first time I hung out with my future wife (with a mutual friend driving).

    Looks awesome. Well done. I'd grab a glass of scotch to help you celebrate, but I start work in 10 minutes
