Oh and what kind of wood is that? It almost looks like Oak. I'm assuming it is since its the most common to get in a typical hardware store

If I remember right the granite overhangs 3-4" on each side. It is oak plywood trimmed with oak molding.

Sully--looks great. Do you have any pics of the underside? Also, how did you bolt yours down ?

If I had 6 feet between the table legs, will that comfortably fit 3 people? I found a nice piece of stone at a cheap price tongue.gif

It looks like glen fit 4 chairs under his bar that's around 7'6"

Not Sully, but I didn't bolt mine down. It's very solid as is. if you have a good base and your top is not too top-heavy it's probably Ok. If you have small kids, then that's a different story.

Any updates on this Bar build? looks kind of like mine, except for the ledge around the top. i like that feature, on mine, if someone spills something it could go all over my head and on the chairs.

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.

Looks nice, maybe a little low for standard bar height. what was the top made out of?

Its acrylic (like Plexiglas). I found a local supplier that has milky or sign acrylic in various sizes that would work. This one was 40" high, 84" long.

Some people use oynx for bartops with LED lighting inside. Acrylic would of course be cheaper.
