This is my basement bar project that I built from left over logs and lumber from our house. Since we needed a break after building the house, this project actually was done 7 years after.
I needed some pine slabs for the tops so I found a guy with a sawmill in Michigan. He aquired some large pines from a local university and slabbed them for me. Since I had many large Oaks & Hickorys that needed to come down, we just traded.
The top slabs are all biscuited together as 1 piece. The back bar was made from left over knotty pine planks we also had left over. (I still have to build the doors & drawers).
The total project for the whole basement took about 10 months a little at a time. I have many more pictures at various stages but they may seem a bit boring. The bar has a keg cooler box that can hold (2) 1/2 barrels & misc other items. It is powered by a small frig with the door removed. A 12v computer fan keeps the rear coils cool & another fan inside the freezer box circulates the cold air around the kegs. There are also 2 built in frig’s with glass doors. The tap overflow drain is piped around the rear and ties into the sink. The credit for the actual design concept of the bar came from “Easy home bar plans”.
