Hello, I just finished making a bar rack display and wanted to show some of the pictures. I used red oak wood, opaque glass, and some led lighting strips on the inside to light it up. I saw different pictures on the web of these and decided that it seemed easy enough to make, it ended up only taking a few hours of actual work, but letting the stain and poly dry took up most of the time. I have lots of pictures so you can see different angles and colors lit. Any questions feel free to ask.

Looks nice. Its actually very similar to what I wanted to do. Where did you get the glass from? I was thinking of using a frosted acrylic, but the glass looks great. Mine will be two tier like your's, but I want one piece in the middle a little higher for the crystal head vodka I bought. I love that bottle.

Excellent design and job. I've been looking to buy something like that for my back bar in acrylic, but I like your design much better than anything I've seen. Once again, nice job. You should be proud of that project. The opaque glass works really well too.
What type of lighting did you use?
It looks like you left about a 1/2" or so all the way around as an opening under the glass

hey thanks for the compliments, when I finished it and turned on the lights I kinda surprised myself with how well it came out considering how quick I made it without any plans at all. Its a fairly simple concept to make but I think that the end result looks like it was much harder to make. The lighting I got from amazon. This is the link for the two strip set (I bought the four strip set but I think it may have been overkill) http://www.amazon.com/Color-Changing...ref=pd_cp_hi_2 . Thanks again.
