Any thoughts on bar top rail overhang vs foot rail distance? I was thinking 10" and 5".

Any first hand knowledge and/or 'if I could do it over again'

Thanx

Dishwasher in a bar makes perfect sense. Having a full sized oven seems to be bit overkill.

Yeah actually I almost fell into the EXACT same situation. My wife saw the drawer dishwasher at Lowes and really wanted it, but I found some reviews that made me think twice. Love the little one I ended up getting instead, though the layout inside could be a bit better. At least it has a lot of clips for stemware on the bottom.

Originally I thought of it as just a place to keep things warm for a party, now it is my pizza cooking apparatus.

Wait a minute.. that bar looks finished.. it can't be a LOGAN project! hehe. Yellow Dog! Do you brew your own beer? My neighbor makes some amazing ones, I think his is called "Poseidon".

P.S. I laughed at the yellow dog behind on the upper wall.

HEY! I'm right here. I can hear you, you know.

No, I don't brew my own...I fell in love with the print so added that to end of the name.

The Yellow Dog behind was originally black. A little work by the LOGANESS fixed it right up! I was thinking about putting it on the wall around the corner from the print so that it would kind of line up in the right place. it just didn't look right on the other wall and it was really hard to see. Also thought about mounting it under the print and using it as hook for a hand towel, but then you couldn't see it. So now it's right there for all to see as a kind of "Go ahead. Make a crack about 10 years. You can kiss my...".

he,he

Here's mine—15' 8" of walnut. I still have to build the bar back, but that won't be done until after finishing the theater and the library.

Nice! Are those raised panels or routed out of solid panel? One of these days I'll get around to adding some trim inside the sections of mine.

Thanks. They're raised panels. I had initially drawn up a different design, but when I got the rough lumber, I saw I could glue up some nicely bookmatched panels for some of 'em, so I completely changed the plans.

It's hard to photograph the nice glow that walnut has when the light hits it right.

Worked out great! Do you have a foot rail yet? Oiled Brass footrail cost me almost as much the oak for the bar, and I used oak ply (except for bar rail, which, of course, is solid). But adds a nice finishing touch and makes it much easier to get up and down from the stools and to pull them in closer when seated.

No foot rail—the wife hasn't agreed yet. Yet. I did a bright brass one in the last house and liked it a lot. Oiled brass will fit much better in this house, especially after replacing every single bright brass doorknob and hinge with oiled brass versions as my first project after closing on this house.
