Here is a bar I made for a friend that I work with. He just got an addition put on his house and got his own dedicated man cave. He wanted a rustic look to the bar hence the rough pine trim. The top has an epoxy resin finish which has in it a chart from a deployment he was on. The chart has the location where he was at the exact time his second daughter was born. He wanted a couple of other pieces of the chart to go on the top and also two coins that mark milestones in his Naval career. The first is a coin he got when he made Chief; the second he got when he got picked up for Chief Warrant Officer.
There is a work counter behind the bar and a small pan to serve as a dry sink (ice holder or whatever). Yes, that is a kegerator! Picture three shows the cavity where the mini fridge will go when he gets that. There are two shelves in between the kegerator cavity and the mini fridge cavity. My dad was down when I finished it so he helped me deliver and install it. That is him enjoying an ice-cold Blue Moon in picture five.
The molding I ordered from the Baird Brothers website. Excellent quality molding, best price I found online, and super-fast shipping. I ordered it on a Thursday; it was on my door step Saturday morning. The top is 42” high. Across the front is around six feet and around five feet on the side. He loves it and couldn’t have seemed happier so I am pleased. We are still trying to come up with ideas for a foot rest that is something other than the brass foot rests you can get anywhere. Ideas are welcome for that and comments welcome on the bar.
