This is one of my first projects since I’ve become more serious about my woodworking hobby. We bought an old house (1840s) a few years back, and have spent the past 5 years focusing on restoring it. It is finally to a point where I can now work with ‘new wood’!

When I came up with this wet bar design for our master suite, I wanted to keep the colonial-era feeling of the original house. The counter top is reclaimed heart pine floor boards from a portion of the original house that was demolished. The rest is poplar painted with a historic paint.

This was my first project using a router table (beaded edges, cabinet doors), and it is also the first time I’ve used the kreg pocket hole jig. They both made this project much easier.

The cabinet holds an ice maker, the hot water dispenser tank, and a few bottles of ‘liquid patience’ (we have 3 young kids!).

That is a Dynamite build, Bob! I Love It, well done! It’s a real period piece, looks fabulous. Really!

Looks very nice, but I have to ask – wet bar in the master bedroom? do a lot of “entertaining” in that room? ;)

Well, the wet bar is next to the sitting room. We spend most evenings in the sitting room, so we figured why should we have to walk downstairs to make a drink, or a cup of tea.
