Here's a scan of my drawing. The dark areas are the half walls I was referring to. The thicker one on the right shows where the outlet is on the original wall. Sorry graph paper doesn't scan well.

Personally , i would remove the wall outlet and put in a covered junction box . Run wires from that to a new outlet . Of course if you want or need to stick with code that probably wouldn't fly .

Well that's my issue it wouldn't be code. I think I've figured out what I'm going to do. I'm going to swap the 18" base cabinet and the bev fridge then leave an opening in the drywall in front of the outlet. Since the fridge can be pulled out that should satisfy code.

Jerrod looks great. Have a couple questions. Is that black galaxy granite tile? How do you feel using the wood trim instead of the granite trim tiles? Where did you get that sink and what size is it?

I picked it up at Home Depot. It's not too big.... maybe 18-20" wide.

The tile is Black Galaxy and I got that at Lowe's. I have so much wood trim everywhere in the rest of my basement and around the bar so I wanted to stay consistent. Plus, Lowe's didn't have any trim tiles to look at. I found some at a tile store, but they were really expensive. I don't even remember how much but 1 piece cost more than all of the wood trim....

Thanks. It turned out pretty nice. As stated, I just need a kegerator so I can really enjoy all the fruits of my labor!

I know what you mean about the granite edging. The best price I can find is about $20 per 12" piece. I love the granite edging but each time I think about the cost I go back to wood.

Any issues or tips for cutting out the opening in the granite for the sink?

For the sink, my first recommendation is to get a square one. Makes the cuts very simple. Second, take a look at this picture.



I placed the granite so the left side ended at the sink, so the only cuts I had to make were on the right side of the sink. It was 2 simple "L" pieces I had to make. No problem at all.

Now, my neighbor just finished a similar project and he had a round copper sink and he a miserable time cutting it. Hard to explain, but he marked the tile and then using his wet saw he just cut a bunch of strips into the granite up to he line. You could say he cut perpendicular to the circle he traced on the tile. Then, he just snapped the thin pieces off. It worked, it just took him a while to do it.

It's under the bar. Couldn't risk any damage or breakage while I was tiling.

The shelves on the wall is one of the next things on the list to do.

Well unfortunately I can't have the sink line up like that but I already decided I will do a square sink. I've used that technique for curves when doing tile and it isn't fun.

Did you use 3/4" plywood then backerboard on top of that?

I didn't even both with backer board. I just used the OSB and left it at that. I'm sure there are folks that will tell me I should of put more down, I just didn't bother.

Another question for you. What did you use to seal the space between the granite tile and the wood trim?

Has anyone ever used a thin coat of Envirotex applied with a brush to your bar rail instead of poly? Any reason why this wouldn't work to put a little thicker finish on there?

str1der - I didn't use envirotex on my bar rail (just lots of coats of gloss poly), but I don't see any reason why it wouldn't work. Seems like it would be more expensive than Poly though, and you'd have to be careful of how it has a tendency to run/drip.

It might work if you let it set up a bit.....It does run quickly... Maybe wait 5 minutes and test, then maybe 10 minutes....depends on how warm your room is when you pour it too. I'll bet it is comfy too, it's as smooth as silk.

I guess I was thinking of applying it like poly with a brush not pouring it.

Local craft chains (AC Moore & Michaels) are where I got mine. They also regularly run 40% off coupons in the Sunday Newspaper circulars too.

Okay thanks IrmoGamecoq, I will have to look again, the 2 Michael stores I went to only carried a small amount of envirotex, I need much more than they have and thought it would be cheaper buying it in bulk.

Yeah, I think the largest size they carried for me was the half(?) gallon. I just bought several bottles of the largest size (of course, using a different coupon each time).

Thanks Heynow...that price is the lowest I've seen so far for a gallon. How much did it take to do your bar top?

I used 96 oz on the first pour. I then tried to clean up a mishap that I had with 32 oz. after the initial pour set up. It didn't work out, so I ordered another gallon and I am going to pour another 96 oz. soon. If I had not screwed up the initial pour, I would have been okay with one 96 oz. pour. My bar is about 7'X4'X16".

My bar top is approx. 20" wide x 16 ft. long - i used about 1 1/2 gallons
and got full coverage of at least 1/8" . I think so long as your bartop is very level this would be plenty .
You could always ask Micheals if they could order a gallon size .

Thanks guys that helps - I am more similar to malbols with about 16 ft in length x 15 1/4 wide. What did you use to spread it? I have read foam brushes, business cards, cardboard, plastic spatula? I read to start in a circular motion starting from end to center, is that what you did?
