My son works at a popular local restaurant chain. A section of the bar top got scratched when the owner was having new TVs installed. He asked my son if he could build him a bar for his garage using that section of the top. He agreed and asked me to help. You know how that goes. I ended up doing the majority of it.
Unfortunately they didn’t agree on a price up front. I kept asking and he kept assuring me we’d get paid. Despite my better judgment we (that is I) completed it. And guess what? They couldn’t agree on a price and now it sits in my garage. So if you know anybody in the York, PA area interested in a nice bar have them get in touch!
Anyway, the bar top is 86 3/4” long by 30 3/8” wide and was repurposed from said local restaurant. I’m assuming it has a standard clear epoxy waterproof finish on it. We built the base. It measures 86 1/2” long by 23 3/8” wide and is made from red oak hardwood and plywood. It is stained and finished with four coats of polyurethane. The owner wanted it to look like the bar in the restaurant so I added the corrugated roofing on the sides held in with rabbets along the trim. The contrasting colors between the top and the base isn’t what I would have picked but it was what he wanted.
Anybody want to buy a bar!
