Café Jewel






Ask a jeweler to refinish a bar...  I had the chance for Illy Coffee, Tea and Espresso represented here on Guam.  Seems more to me like play than work!  

Mission: create a self-serve bar to showcase Illy brand espresso machine & merchandise, starting with an existing wood framework.  I roughly sanded the pre-painted surface, and applied an "Italian tile" floor vinyl with adhesive and staple gun.  Next I cut aluminum stair edging to cover the seams, and filed all edges so they were soft to the touch.  Finishing up - a stainless steel rail, casters, and some special cafe touches.  Almost want to make another one for myself!  Although i focus my work on body adornment, i have spent decades on freelance interior design & refinishing, and don't think i'll ever stop making great spaces, corporate or privately.
