I was able to spend a little more time on the cabinet today. It was about 34 degrees out so my plans of spending the day in the garage brewing and staining, sanding, and finishing the wood for this were put on hold. I did what I could inside with what I had ready. Here's some pictures of the progress:


Test fitting the top cabinet. Damn cats are everywhere!


Installed the lights


Better shot of the lighting


Stemware holders are in


Testing them out with the lighting behind them. I think this will look really nice once the mirror is in and all of our stemware is organized and up.


Installed the top cabinet. What a pain in the butt that damn thing proved to be. Luckily SWMBO woke up and helped screw it in while I held it in place. I have an oak strip that will cover the gap between the shelf and the bottom of the cabinet, I just need to cut it and glue it in place.


Stopping point for the day.

Hopefully I kick this damn chest cold and the weather warms up soon. It's colder than what the specs for the stain and sealer recommend so I'm likely not going to be posting any more progress on this for a week or two...

That is a very cool build. I do like the stemware holder. Very classy.

So far it looks pretty good! Keep up the work! I was out staining in the 34 degree weather... I stained and then moved the work into my basement to dry up... Yesterday I was out with Polyurethane sealing my Keezer up... It was damn cold...

Nobody told the weather it was spring...

I ended up kegging 10 gallons of victory prima pils-ale and 5 gallons of ed wort's apfelwein sweetened with raspberry syrup and starting yet another batch of apfelwein just to keep busy and avoid going out to the cold garage to work with the wood today...

Believe it or not (I choose to ignore it), I have not done a stitch of work on this project since May. My wife hates that we have a half finished construction project in the middle of the dining room.

I really have not much left to do on the cabinet side of things, but a giant mountain to climb to figure out the beer side of it. I have all the wood I need, but still need to sand, stain and finish it so I can cut it and put it in place. I've let myself get distrated with a thousand other projects...

...like building a wall in front of my second garage door so I can have a door to use instead of opening the garage to get a beer:


It's likely to be November before I get a chance to work on this again though. I'm starting a new job, have friends from Australia visiting for a month, and am throwing one hell of a huge 40th b-day party for me and my friend.

I can guarantee that my wife won't let this one stay dead too much longer though...

Well, I finally got the woodworking tools back out and decided to work more on this eyesore in the middle of my dining room...


Tore the paneling down and glued the oak counter top to the drywall counter base


Insulated the accessway from the crawlspace basement


Glued in the facing in front of the counter (this will act as the barrier as I pour the resin top)


Ended up with a bit of a gap due to the cheapness of the cabinets that I bought on sale from HD. This will be fixed with woodglue and clamps


A different angle. The side here will be closed up with a floor to ceiling oak board that will eventually serve as the left side base for the doors. I should have that up by this weekend along with new paneling that fits right up to the edge of the cabinets if beer brewing doesn't get in the way.

Got some more done this weekend!


Fixed the bar top gap


Test fit the side panel/board


View of the test fit from the other side


Realized I had an unfortunate gap, so I glued in a little piece of stained wood and held it up with one of the kid's superballs


Secured the side board and installed the wall paneling


Alternate view of the new wall paneling


Test fitting the side backsplash. There will be a mirror above this and in the back.

Busy at work this week so I probably won't get much else done until the three day weekend next weekend. Might hit up Home Depot/Lowes in between and start pricing the mirrors...
