Looks great, works great, holds 1 litre of beer...must BE great! Looks like simple works. It's a great starting point for when I get around to building mine.

Hey, great job on the bar. Where did you get the under counter wine rack? My girlfriend has been asking me to put one of those up for some time now.

Curtis104,

Thanks! Barproducts.com has several finishes and lengths to suit just about all of your needs. I get all my bar accessories from there.

I helped my friends build an enormous bar back in college, we were all in engineering, so we overbuilt it. Our standard was that at least 10 chicks could dance on it at the same time. We threw some wicked parties, and finally, one Halloween, we passed the test! 10 chicks...dancing....on the bar! Hook 'em Horns!

ManTown,

Try Superior Products for pricing.. You may now be able to find the best price there now, but look around, you will find competitive pricing.

Hey now, it's okay man, i'll chug a few everynow and then..Families good as I hope yours is..House is coming,just a little slow..Cold winter slow the bricks down which slowed the house work down..But still loving being an homeowner..

Im gonna be asking you advice on buying and installing bass shakers for my theater in the near future. How are yours going?
post #44 of 556
HeyNow: beautiful bar, I always thought a bar added the final touch to a basement. Glad I have one in my basement. I tiled the top and paneled the sides. Now I have to get the foot rail for that final touch. check my gallery for a picture of my bar.. It measures 5x9 w/ sink and fridge.. Matt

Awsome job Taxman48! I bet you have a lot of room behind the bar for storage. I also have a poker table, but it's too big for the existing space. I just keep it in storage until needed. I really like the look of your space. Excellent work!

man town2, right now theater is taken apart(sigh), all the main components are in boxes in basement..I removed the shakers from couch since didn't think they were needed in the 2nd family room.I just now put a 65" in there to get some dvd watching going again.

If you can find them, I highly recommend them and will use them in the real theater when I do it in the basement.

NFC is on one side and AFC on the other in City order. I've had them several different ways. And I bet they will be changed again in the future.

Man that is inspiring! Very nice work.
post #52 of 556
Nice work, Hey Now. I love the idea of using hardwood flooring as the countertop. Very resourceful.

I have a couple of boxes of leftover hardwood myself that I've been wondering what to do with. If I wasn't getting some granite tile for my bar countertop *for free*, I'd probably opt for the same thing. I'll have to keep that idea in mind for down the road though.

How 'bout that...small world. Don't suppose you were still there when "the player revolt" occurred, were you?

And yes, definitely long live SOS.

HeyNow, great job! That looks awesome! Thanks for all the great pics and info, it is a tremendous help for me on the bar I am starting to build. I do have a few more questions if you don't mind and may have more as I get further into the process of building this thing. I have never really took on a project of this magnitude before. First, how wide is the 3/4 plywood that you used as the base for the bartop? Second, is the bartop plywood perfectly centered with the 2x4 support beam or does it stick out more on one side than the other? Your help is GREATLY appreciated, these pictures are the most detailed I have seen anywhere without actually having to buy the plans!! Thanks again.

Thanks for the compliments.

I would guess that the top is 18-20 inches across split 60/40 (inside bar/outside bar). The critical measurement is the legroom. You have to test that to see what feels comfortable to you.

Good luck with your bar project. Don't for get to take plenty of pictures to share with all of us!
post #57 of 556
Awesome bar!! Just a question though! How do yo finish the hardwood surface on the bar top? If you leave it, eventually it will get dinged up and booze will be spilt on it, and probably soak into the cracks. Did you put some kind of sealer on it? If so, what did you use??

Snickers,

The oak flooring is pre-finished. I filled in the cracks will a filler designed for hardwood floors. Then I put Poly on that.

HeyNow^ -

I was in Charlestown the other day (GOLFING, NOT gambling!) and passed by a store right on the main street that looked like it sold all kinds of bar stuff. Retro stools, bars, jukeboxes, and supplies, etc. At least it looked that way from the window display and the name of the store had "bars" in the title. I only caught it out of the corner of my eye, as we were looking for the golf course, not bar stores. Have you ever been in there? Do you think it might be worth the trip (it's only an hour from Sterling!).

Tom
