This bar was done for a friend of a friend that had seen some of my work. It has a kegerator in the bar and a wet sink. The lighting was the best part,it just gives it that glow at night. I am no pro when it comes to woodworking but I am always willing to try new things and if don’t know how to do it I want to learn how to do it. I have a very small shop in my basement but I can do some pretty good things in there.

Yep, you can do some pretty good things in your basement shop. Very good things. The bar, lighting and everything looks great.

The very first bar you built is really beautiful, Fxcrew! Usually the first impression lasts longer and maybe forever..and it inpires you to build more and more…
Great job!

Do you have the plans for this bar, I really like what you did with the lighting, I will have a space similar to what you have there.

Very nice looking. I want to do something similar in my basement. I really like the lights under the bar top. That’s a nice touch. And of course, being from the Detroit area, love the Lions license plate on the wall… :)

Wow! I’d hate to see your second one! Excellent work. I love the stepped shelves.
