You might have a bit of trouble with the foot rest area. Most cabinets/bars have a toe relief. I hate to be critical of a nice build, but the bottom section extending out to the bar top will cause a problem. It's the reason bars have the rail above the foot height.

Nice wood for the top, but it might look better turned over. Flitches usually work better with the live edge rolling out gradually from top to bottom, rather than having a sharp edge on the top. Just my opinion as a (professional) furniture maker.

How'd you secure the bottom of the bar to the "wall" part of the bar in the first pic? Keep those pics coming!
I inserted 2 x 4 through the bottom pallets so I had additional strength to place screws into the base. Once thew plywood was added the structure is solid as can be

Yes I am realizing this now. I wanted to do a natural slate or stone on top but now have been tinkering with different ideas.

Nice build, love the use of recycling the pallets.

Very cool bar, do you have any finished photos? How are the pallets holding up?

The bar is great I am just waiting for some slate to finish the foot rest. The pallets made this bar stable and have applied this concept to some other builds in my house. These pictures are months old but will give you an idea of where it's at. So many other house projects this has been put on hold until I can install a sink and finish the back half of the bar.
