A co-worker of mine has asked me to build him a basement bar after seeing the work I did for another co-worker and his basement bar. This design will be pretty straight forward and will be constructed from birch ply and solid birch. The request was for an 8 ft bar with space for a fridge, wine bottle holder, a couple of drawers and an enclosed cabinet. Even though he doesn’t like a glass of fine Scotch, I agreed to build it for him :-). Maybe he will poke a bottle in the bar for when I visit!
This blog will document the build process, from start to finish. My first post will show the sketchup drawings I did to give him an idea of what I had in mine. The actual build may change slightly as I work through it but for the most part, this is what it will look like.
The first thing we discovered after putting together an initial plan is the potential difficulty for getting an 8ft structure down the basement stairs and around a corner. So this will be built as two separate 4ft cabinets and they will be mated into the structure once we get it all in the basement.
Stay tuned as I go through this build over the next couple of weeks.
Thanks for looking!
