Bud, I really like the recessed panel design. It will give it a great look! Will you be covering this in wood or paint & trim?

I still have to install bottom kick plates, but Lowes wide oak trim pieces are very expensive. I'm thinking of just getting oak 1X6's and routing one edge.
I was thinking about how far to overhang my top. I've looked at a couple of bars (not too many, I'm married...with children
) and every one of them was different. Some had huge overhangs, and some without any at all, so I'm guessing there's no standard. How do you like the 12" overhang on yours and do you wish it hung out further? (Setup for an easy weiner joke).
I think I would route one edge myself. Even if you have to buy the bit which can be expensive, it should save from the premium of a tall trim piece.
