Duce,

It is standard bar railing that you can get at your local hardwoods dealer. Bud mentioned that you can get it shipped from Rockler online also. Good luck.

Heynow - Where did you get the booth? My wife is hung up on getting one from the place in Charles Town, and I just can't see the $$$.

Thanks for any info!

Craig,

That group in CT wanted $2k for the complete outfit. It's nice but not that nice.

Central Restaurant online is where I got mine. Great price and Daryl Lambert handled my account. The guy must have called me a dozen times to update me on the status of my account. He followed the tracking of my orders and would call me to make sure I was updated. He can be reached at (800) 222-5107 ext 285.

Good luck!

That was kinda my thought. We went up there and looked at the stuff, and while it is very nice, it just didn't seem like $2-3k nice!

Thanks alot for the info!

Hi Heynow! The fact that you built such a classy bar is great in itself, but you taking the time to post all these step by step and extremely detailed photos makes me want to get up & get started, and so I have.

Actually, I 'started' when I began the job of enclosing my back patio July 2004 (I have no basement). It had a leaky roof but no sides. To make a long story short it's now enclosed with 10 windows, a storm door & steel door to the yard and french doors to the family room. The sheetrock ceiling & walls are taped & painted. I've wired for a ceiling fan and there are two doubled up electric outlets and one single. I also brought cable TV access in. The floor is still cement.

My bar will be a dry one (meaning no tap, of course). Since there will be a window in back, I can't install a back bar like yours; it'll have to be a 'side bar' if you will. OK, I realize it HAS been 2 1/2 years, but I'm not retired and only have weekends and nights (in summer). Since my daugter is graduating from college in May I know I HAVE to get in high gear before the party or I'll N-E-V-E-R hear the end of it. The job got easier after I got the good ideas from you. Thanks a lot! Tom H.

So Randy, where did you get your helmets... Now that the Bears have put together a winning season, I can safely admit I've been a fan since the SuperBowl Shuffle. In fact, all the football B&Ws I have in the bar are old players .. Sayers, Butkus, etc. Was looking at some of the helmets on eBay and was curious where you got yours.

Tom,

Thanks buddy, but the good ideas are things that I borrowed from the many folks on this forum. One of the requirements of this forum is that you have to provide us all with your progress photos! It sounds like you are well on your way to an outstanding bar/entertainment area. I can't wait until you start posting your results! Speak up if you need help from many of the bar builders around here!

Like I have said before, Chinadog, Buffbaker, BigMouthinDC are excellent examples of outstanding bars. Take a look at their work!

Best wishes.

Lots of birthday, Father's day, Christmas (insert any other holiday reason to get a helmet) day presents. Here is where most of them came from, including all of my Superbowl Footballs and acrylic cases. Great, quick service. Never bought any from ebay, I'm sure you can find some great deals there also.

Wishing you and the family a happy holidays!

Hey Randy, im looking for barstools similar to the ones that you have. Do you think that i will be better off ordering them online or going to a furniture store.

Duce,

We have done both. I wasn't satisfied with what I saw online and in person. My advice is not to settle for what is available immediately. If we had done that, we would have many regrets. Fortunately, we kept looking and one day at Sam's Club, we found what we really liked. Excellent construction, comfortable stools. Of course, they no longer sell what we found, so only getting four stools did raise some concerns with acquiring more stools in the same style later.

Again, look at every available outlet you can find, be it online or local B&M. Good luck, Duce!

Nice setup, concept and construction. Will definately use some of your good ideas for my bar. Thanks!

Man, that bar REALLY looks nice. I love the wood floor as the bar top. Anyway, great job!

Great setup! Does the flooring on the bar top happen to be Mirage Red Oak in the natural finish?

Geez... I don't remember. I know it's a natural finish...and it looks like red oak. You are probably right!

Heynow.

I wish I had seen your posts before I got started on mine! You have done a great job, especially in the evolution of what you have now, considering the initial pictures.

Just a few quick questions.

1. I see a few sources for the bar moulding on-line and really like yours. Do you have the dimensions of your bar moulding handy? It appears to be in the neighborhood of 6 inches x 2 1/2 inches.

2. If you had it do over again, would you change anything (color, shelves, top bar material, construction etc.)?

Thanks in advance, Ed.

dtebh,

1. You can check with McDaniels Hardwoods here and they will give you the dimensions. I don't remember, but I can send you a scrap to check. Send me a PM.

2. Hindsight being what it is, I would change a couple of things but the bar is still evolving.....so since I am in the process of making those changes, I will post the results soon

We are really enjoying the bar....Can't wait for this weekend!
post #109 of 556
Randy,
Thanks for the prompt reply. I will contact McDaniels in the AM. I assumed that more than one size existed, but I can't confirm on their website since this product didn't seem to be listed.

Yes...enjoy the bowl.

Go Ponies!
