Basement Bar I built with my father. Mostly quarter sawn White Oak with black granite top. This started my venture into woodworking.

Nice job, since you didn’t take enough pics for us Lumerjock junkies, I will have to insist that I come of for a beer and take a closer look. Well done.

Where do you go from there? This STARTED your venture in woodworking?

Gorgeous. Simply gorgeous.

Great job. As suggested in the future we like lots of pictures, dimensions and descriptions. Other wise you have to buy a round for all of us. :-)

Thanks for all the compliments….it was a lot of fun, very frustrating, but, did start the itch. I will try to load some in progress pics. I did not think it was going to come out that nice. Also had no idea of the amount of tools I would amass. lol. Thanks again.

I want one of these in my basement!

Great looking bar—and I really like the cash register! Nice touch!

I bought the cash register..for more than my wife knew…so kind of committed myself to building the bar to go under it.

I am hooked on the idea of building a real nice bench. That will be my next project I think soon as I find a way to pay for all the maple.
