This is a bar I built for our newly renovated basement. It was made from spalted wormy maple and maple veneer ply. I saw a similar bar online and then just made up my own plans in Sketchup. The side extension can be used on either side of the bar. It was finished with Minwax Early American stain and two coats of satin poly. My camera seems to add a yellow cast to every picture I take so it’s hard to show the real colour. The stools are just temporary, I plan to build my own to match the bar eventually.

Beautiful bar, fantastic work and craftsmanship. I like the movable side section, great idea. Enjoy this build, because like Stumpy says: “you’ve earned it my friend!”

Very nice project. Should be some good times ahead.

That yellow cast is probably due to the lighting. A flash would help change the color temperature to daylight and make the pics look more natural. Or you can edit the pics in a photo editor such as Photoshop Elements to adjust the color temp.

Regardless, your project looks very nicely done.
