Sounds like a great idea for the big day. Beats paying five hondo for bud light. I d try to use old barn wood from craigslist or a local antique shop. Lots of that round my parts and it looks cool. Be sure to sand and seal whatever you use.

A quick update on progress. This past weekend, we built the table top using some older, knotty pine. I'm still working on getting old palettes for the sides. We created a 3 inch overhang in the front and about an inch at the back. Next step will probably be building the tap tower. Hoping to accommodate 4 taps and to build it modular so that it can be taken off for portability/cleaning. Thanks for looking!ImageUploadedByHome Brew1403725769.182174.jpgImageUploadedByHome Brew1403725801.827861.jpg

If you decide to use the vinegar/steel wool to oxidize the wood, be aware that it reacts with tannins in the wood and pine is very low in tannins. If you brew some strong black tea and paint the pine with a couple coats of the tea the tannins from the tea will be enough to create the weathered look with the vinegar/steel solution.

So far so good. I did the beer for our wedding last year, and people still talk about it. I'm glad I did it.
