Default Custom Bar Build

Been trolling around the forum long enough, figure I ought to post something already.

Made my first batch of beer (a kit which didn't actually require any real brewing oh well...) and since I didn't feel like dealing with bottles I went straight for building a kegerator out of an old dorm fridge and some parts I had already laying around.

Which brought me to thinking it was about time to get started on the bar I had been planning on building. So... here is what I've built so far:

Left Opening will contain shelving for glassware and whatnot. Center will for the kegerator and bottom right opening for a wine cooler. Top right will likely be drawers and maybe ventilation for the refrigerators.

http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo...eat=directlink
My trim work

http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo...eat=directlink
Front view, that tile on the floor is a piece of what i plan to use for the bar top, you can also inda see my kegerator in the background

Not too bad considering I'm making this up as I go along.

Sorry about the links to the pictures, been a while since I've posted to a forum...

Straight to kegging. I like it.

Looks like the bar could be sweet too!

Yeah, I had already made a batch of wine and cleaning/sanitizing/filling was a pain... and a batch of beer was going to take about 3x as many bottles. I did bottle a few from the keg for a weekend outing.

Thanks for fixing the images for me... I was so close when I first tried it, just had the wrong URL...

Just use the IMG tags and not the URL, But you can't post pictures until you have like 25-50 posts anyway so it wouldn't have worked for you still.

I think you have to have 10 posts before you can do pictures anyway.
