Who: Stephen M.
Where: Braintree, MA
"Belfast Pub" was started on St. Patrick's Day. I used dark walnut stain and brass accents as much as I could. My wife thought I was crazy when my old 45s wouldn't line up perfectly, and I would scrap the wood to start again—and I would tell her craftsmanship will never go out of style.
Who did the work: I did all the work myself
Cost: $1,000 to $5,000
