So this is a little project I have been working on for a few weeks for my in laws to put under their patio. There is another bar top that mirrors the one in the second picture. I used rough cedar for the cabinets and ceramic tile for the top. I built in an ice chest and plumbed it out the back for drainage. My M.I.L. is going to stain everything to match the posts on the bar in the pic. All in all it turned out nice and I learned a LOT doing the project.

Oh yeah. I still have some trim work to do on the bars. The 2x’s will be covered up when I get completely done. I will update.

It looks great! That should win you some points with the in-laws! Thanks for sharing.

Very nice. I’d like to do something like that too but I’m not at all sure it would turn out as nice.
