My Bar Build
I have posted pictures of my bar here on occasion, but quite a few have expressed interest in seeing how I made it... I finished the bar last summer. But I have been very busy using it. ;) It took me a loooong time to plan and complete this project. I designed it with my kegerator in mind without even having my kegerator built (and I had never built a kegerator before)

So here is a little blog of the build:

First cabinet completed... The panels are all from spalted maple colored with transtint dye. Rails and stiles are walnut.

Glueing up the veneer - this was nerve racking! The veneer is maple burl.

Front panel and lighting installed. This was all one massive series of panels. NOTICE that I have 2 homebrews poured - freely flowing beer was priority here, you see.

New copper sink and faucet installed. The veneer has now been covered with a pour on epoxy finish (about 1/8" thick)

Got the computer with 15" touchscreen installed. Hooked to the soundsystem on my wireless network.
