Im not a fan of high life either but am a big miller lite drinker! And I think the light looks really nice and your bar is amazing! Love your build a lot.

Yesterday I took shipment of three Berlkline Reno power recliners from HT Outlet (eBay). These chairs were listed as used. Not only could I see no particular wear in the photos, but now in person they look fantastic.

I got these chairs for $728 plus $125 shipping. Couldn't really be more pleased.

Thanks I thought so as well. It's "bonded leather" so who knows how well it will hold up, but at that price I don't consider it a huge risk.

Today I wired one of the storage arms of my theater recliners so that I would have USB for devices and the cradle for my Harmony remote.

More power baby!

Was recently able to obtain a few other items that my grandfather had in his bar, you will see them both in this picture: The Prager mirror and the Hammond clock, model 341.


You can read more about how I restored the clock here: https://medium.com/@teaching_music/r...k-bc7cd9795d89

That clock looks awesome! Great read on the restore. Nicely done! I'm very jealous of your bar. I'm still waiting for the cash to be able to begin my bar build. I have the majority of the basement finished minus a few lighting details and the theater is functional now. But I really want to get the bar going! Hopefully by fall I'll be able to get going on it!

Thanks all, it is really enjoyable to use, let me tell you.

Hey, for those of you using Hue lights.... two apps I have been using and really like: Hue Lights (no, that's not the stock Hue app) and Palettes. The first is really great for setting up your groups, scenes, and colors. The second is great for switching easily between scenes and changing the brightness.
