I just posted a new build video on my Youtube channel I’m super excited about! Let me know what you think:

Introducing the Murphy Bar-- Woodworking

In this video I build a folding “Murphy Bar.” It is designed as a classic midcentury piece that opens to display your liquor bottles and glasses with a large bar top you can sit at and enjoy a drink. When you need some extra space, the bar top can fold away, revealing a storage cabinet below. It is made from walnut, with brass hardware. The finish is 5 coats Waterlox. If you have any questions, feel free to ask them in the comments below.

Sorry, but without at least a full picture of your project,
I’m not going to waste my time going to your video to decide if I want to see it or not.

That’s your choice. I installed it, and haven’t gotten photos back from my client, so that’s why I only have the thumbnail. I worked my ass off on the video, though.

Great project and build video. I really enjoyed it. Just curious, didn’t see you fill in the brad nail holes in the face trim.

I have to echo Jbay’s sentiments about only one photo and a description with no explanation. I have made it an intentional point to ignore 1 photo projects. I understand you don’t have photos, but even a couple of screen captures from your video would help establish this project. Why did I break my own rule… murphy bar is on my honey do list. :)

Now with all that blustering out of the way.
That was a great build and a good video.
Kudos for:
  • Starting the video with a good whiteboard sketch of what you were building.
  • Whiteboards on garage door panels.
  • Tape labels on every piece.
  • A great design and flawless build.
  • Syncing your mallet blows with the music.

AlmFab, Very unique and interesting project. Favorited. The video is outstanding. Thanks for making the video, it had to be an enormous amount of work – it shined.

Thanks Swirt, I took this advice and Jbay’s to heart, and posted some images, and a bit more of a description. Thanks for the kind words as well! (I am a definite part labeler that’s for sure) I hope you build a rad Murphy Bar soon!

Extremely well done! Sorry about the snarkiness above. Subscribed. Will make more comments below the video. As a fledgling YouTuber, I understand how much work that all was.

Thanks for listening AimFab. Your additions are a big improvement and will surely get you more traffic.

And now the thing that has been eating at me all day….. How did you get the whiteboard on your garage door panels? (seriously cool)
