This is our home show display bar I built a few years ago. It’s built out of solid cherry including the bar top. The top is attached at the columns with bolts and easily comes apart. It’s still heavy and next time I will definitely consider building it in three sections instead of two. It definitely has served its purpose, I’ve picked up a lot work from this bar, however it’s time to part with it. I’ve listed it on craigs list about two weeks ago and already have somebody coming to see it. Brand new it should sell for about $10,000. but I’m giving it away for $5,000. It’s taking up to much room in my shop! It’s just over 8’ long and just less than 8’ high. It took me about 2 months part time give or take to build it. Hopefuly it will sell soon!

That has to be hard to let go. Especially at half what it is worth. I can only hope the buyer has sufficient appreciation of that.

Thats a nice looking bar Bryan. Very similar to the one I am making (for the past 5-6 years). One day I will finish it.

Well I haven’t let it go yet! Maybe I’ll just add a keg and keep it!
