    I know that this an old post, but I love puzzles. The Rubrik are doors that form the “copper wall” and the Benno sides were used as the bar top and backsplash. If you look closely, you can the the lip of the backsplash above the wall topper/counter. Yes, it could have been clearer.

    Could the backsplash be behind the sink (i.e. not visible to us in the picture)? Otherwise, I have no clue what I am looking at either!

    No detail shots? I can’t tell what I’m looking at here.

    :-( I can’t tell what I’m supposed to be looking at either.

    I also agree with whats said above. Only posting a pic of the finished result and a short “this is included” – list isnt enough. Since many of us use this place for getting and sharing inspiration this post unfortunately doesnt add much.

    What I might be able to tell from whats included on the pic is that this is from the same apartment(or house) as the next hack above where a Pax door has been used as a pictureframe and window. That hack too however lacks “instructable” description and pics.

    I am glad to see I am not the only one who can’t see it

    I guess the Benno side is on top of the bar, and the Rubrick doors are the light orange panels behind the table … quite difficult to find :)

    I agree with anonymous, I can’t see it
