This is our home bar that I built at our previous home. We wanted to have an Irish Pub style bar in our basement so after building the room itself I made the bar and small entertainment center. It was my first major home and wood working project and I was ultimately very happy with how it all turned out. Unfortunately I did not take any pictures of my progress and I am still kicking myself today for that. The bar and entertainment center were both built primarily with solid red oak or oak laminated plywood and was finished with a Bombay mahogany colored stain.

Great job on the bar and entertainment center. You should consider building bars for a living, its that good. Keep up the good work. Doug

That’s a great job, you should be proud…any idea as to how much time went into this? Thanks for sharing.

Awesome. We just bought a house with a pool table in the basement—I’ve been thinking of putting in a bar of some sort nearby and may have to “draw inspiration” from yours!

Previous home… That must have clinched the sale when the buyers saw this…

You were able to sell after building this! Did you take it with you? LOL

I guess you have to build another now.

Beautiful work. Where did you get the Bombay mahogany stain? Looks awesome on oak. What time does the bar open??
