Good luck.
Thanks for the info! I'll probably end up using the water-based since my friends and I arent too sloppy. How about the bar top? I was thinking of using envirotex or something similar.

Sorry it's been so long since the last update...been busy!
Here are some shots of the bar now that it's all put together. All that's left to do is sand, stain, and seal!
