Default Home Bar Build

Hey everyone. Haven't posted anything in awhile, have had much time for brewing recently. However I got married in August and soon after we got our basement finished so I decided this was the perfect time to build a home bar. My biggest inspiration came from Thirstin4aburstin's 8-foot bar build, I also used plans from barplan.com. I wanted to incorporate our current wine fridge and kegerator. Here are some pictures of the progress. At this point I'm working on the trim pieces then have to stain.

Nice job! I really like the corkboard backer for the dart board!

Looking forward to the finished product

Thanks!

Yeah the cork board was pretty easy, you just have to know a lot of wine drinkers. I think it took about 1200 corks, maybe a little less.

Updates: got a lot of work done this weekend, finished up all of the trim work. Just have to drill a hole on top for the tap tower. Then a final sanding and staining.

Looks great, can't wait to see the finished product

What kind of wood are you using?
How much did it all cost?

Thanks!

It's framed with 2x4 & 6s then shelled mostly with 3/4" Oak Plywood, some 1/4" in areas to cover some of the 2x4s. I would have rather done 1/2" oak but neither Lowes or Home Depot carried the large sheets. Didn't add a lot of cost, just a lot of extra weight.

I'll have to add it up, but I'd say 300-350, most expensive part was the oak trim.
