Last week, we saw some kick-ass wooden bars, and today we've got some wooden bar accessories. UK-based designer Alex Jess (who operates under his Chill Tree Designs brand) is currently making the blog rounds for his Fidget chair, but we'd like to give some love to some of his booze-related B-sides.
If Hobbits drank cocktails, they'd use Jess' tabletop cocktail mixing station.
The Pippy English Oak object has cutouts for a bartender's shaker, jiggers and tumbler, a leather-lined pull-out drawer for the strainer, mixing spoon and fruit-cutting knife, and a little worksurface on which to concoct a blend so potent those Hobbits won't know what hit 'em.
Dovetail keys lock the back to the cutting surface, dowels hold the legs in place, and the drawer slides on dovetail runners.
Jess' Brown Oak Barstool appears to be human-height—those Hobbits can sit on the floor, I guess—and is made from four flat pieces, both glue- and hardware-free, that slot into each other.
Two pegs hold the entire thing together, making it easy to break down for storage or moving.
Of course, you can't run a bar in the middle of a Hobbit forest with just the cocktail station and the seating; you need some tunes. Jess has got you covered.
