Wanted to share a bar I made for some vets that I know. I wound up taking over the project from them, and was limited to the materials they had already purchased. If I had to do it all over again, I would have used cabinet plywood, and not framing lumber.

I was also limited in tools. Prior to the project, I had been rather busy, and had a small collection. This was put together with a Ridgid circular saw, DeWalt drill, a random orbit sander, 2 pipe clamps and a ryobi table saw that I fished out of a dumpster and got running again. There was also an acquisition of a DWS780 about 2/3 of the way through. (Thanks mom!)

I didn’t get to finish the face before I had to move to a new duty station. The last parts, which were done after I left, were to trim the front, and place some military themed decals.

Hope you guys like it.
