This ia a bar Im doing for my Lt. He’s a great guy who likes to entertain. Cant say he’s a super big lush but he sure can pound the brewskies. He loves hockey so I went with that theme. I built everything. The cabinets and all with some trees I had cut a few years ago. I put hockey pucks (since he collects sign pucks) across the top of the bar and cutoff hockey sticks around the open cabinets where I placed mood lighting. So far its been a labor of love. I really like the opportunity to putz and be creative. He’s been out of town for a month training so I get the run of the place without all the b.s. I will find out in another week if he likes it. Most of the millwork was done in my garage along with the turnings for the bar stoop. I’m at a loss so far on the bar stools. Havent came up with any cool ideas yet which impress me. He’s going to finish sand and put the finsh on (he just doesnt know it yet- HA).

Also- there is a space placed behind the bar back wall. The frig pulls out and you can hide behind it from the wife…...

Nice setup! I’d like to see some photos when everything is finished and the booze is in place.

Nice job tying in a theme to a lot of great woodworking. How about hockey sticks for stool legs?

Great looking refreshment center. If he’s like my old Lt…....any watering hole that’s convenient is good. He should really like it.

For stools… about a simple round stool (in the theme of hockey) shaped like a puck with team logos on them and hockey stick shaped lags?

With that bar he can open his own place and make a fortune! Great design, good theme and great work. I too hope we can see the finished project. I especially liked the hiding place idea.

Great looking bar… Only missing some Vancouver Canucks memorabilia… I am sure that will soon be there too…
Quick thought for the bar stools, perhaps make the tops in the form of an oversized Hockey Puck? Don’t know how you would do the legs, but just a thought for the tops…
Good Luck and please post the results when done…
