YARD HOUSETustin Woodworks, Tustin, Calif., created fixtures and display cases for The Yard House, a Long Beach, Calif., bar and restaurant.Known for its wide selection of beers on tap (more than 180; certification from the Guinness Book of World Records is pending, say its owners), the restaurant takes its name from the yard and half-yard beer glasses that hang above its Tap Room bar.
|The bar’s focal point is a 60-foot-long, 16 foot wide, oval-shaped bar of maple and wood veneers. According to Tustin Woodworks, the bar top was fabricated using a special melamine impregnated wood veneer that makes it impervious to moisture and frequent use. The bar’s vertical surface was faced with aluminum sheeting. As part of the project, Tustin Woodworks also fabricated a martini bar, showcases for logo merchandise and a reception bar using the melamine impregnated panels, maple and galvanized pipe for supports and accents.CLIENT: Intestices Inc., Long Beach, Calif. – Steele Platt, ownerDESIGN: Intestices Inc., Long Beach, Calif.FABRICATION: Tustin Woodworks, Tustin, Calif. – Pat Gilbert, project manager
