looking to do the same. you guys skinning these with 1/4, 1/2 or 3/4 plywood/mdf? figured the 1/4 might have too much play between 16" OC studs but wasn't sure..

I realized I never posted pics of the final product. @dabsabre - I went the route of djhamp and left it open.

I saw this cool one at a Best Buy near me, I don't think they even sell it, there was no price tag on it, wasnt anyone around to ask. I think I will try and build something like it. The top had lights inside so it glowed (you could turn them off.<a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.avsforum.com/content/type/61/id/192584/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="192584" data-type="61" src="http://www.avsforum.com/content/type/61/id/192584/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 263px"></a></div>
</div>

Looks nice, maybe a little low for standard bar height. what was the top made out of?
I too want this type of bar/table. This is the only one I've ever seen in a store. I saw this at the Richfield, Mn. Magnolia store. Looked really cool. Solid surface top with lights inside. We were ther last November. I asked how much. Sales person told me he'd get back to me. He did. Five months later. Base price, $2k.

For those that have a granite or stone bar top. Can you kindly answer this question?
Im in a little dilemma. I built another bar top (this one is for kitchen breakfast bar)this time planning to put granite. Its been leveled drywalled, compound and sanded. Its ready for paint at this point and the granite is already purchased.they have to provide a template next week before installint the actual granite.

Anyway, my problem is that im ch3cking the almost finished bar and its no longer perfectly level. Horizontally it is but its now slightly off in the depth plain if that makes any sense. Facing the bar the back seems a tiny bit lower than the front. I thing it shifted when i was screwing the drywall on? I dont know. But is this gonna stop the granite guys from installing?

Will they shim it from the top? Would they ask me to shim it?
Or worst case do i have to tear this thing down and do it AGAIN?
Im hoping the template they provide will show if there are any flaws because of this shift.

disregard the little panic attack. I gave the bar a few good wacks with the old hammer and all is level again.

I got the table below custom made for my setup from a local guy. He does fantastic work. I can measure to be certain, but I think the table is about 14' long, curves with the theater seating, includes a footrail, is standard bar height and has a drink spill lip (last minute addition haha).

I'd be glad to provide more details if needed. Love this setup! I can also provide better pictures. These are the only ones I currently have uploaded.

Great bar ben_g99. If you don't mind me asking, how much did this thing cost to make?

Has any one here tried using this LED table top on the bar?

Thanks. I think it turned out great and fits my setup well. The bar/table ended up costing $800 all in, delivered and setup and all.

My theater doesn't have space for second row of seats so I'll get a long bar table with (hopefully) the LED table top, I think if we keep the light low, it won't look tacky.

For 800, this is awesome setup you got. Where did you get the bar stools from?

jnsluft - Were you able to find the lighted tabletop table somewhere?

That sounds awesome. I got my bar chairs from Walmart. See link below. They are very comfortable and not very expensive. I was actually positively surprised by the build quality as well.

If you were to buy multiple chairs, they also sell a set of 2 for $10 less per chair.

Here is what I put together. It is stained butcher block with steel pipe fittings for legs. I find I spend more time at my table than the couch when watching football.

Another awesome bar. lot of great ideas.

Looking forward to hearing if anyone has seen the lighted tabletop like one guy saw the Best Buy in Minnesota; would love to see how it looks in person.
