Here's what I plan to do:

I'll go to my local Habitat for Humanity Re-store and buy some base cabinets. Then I'll either build or buy some doors. After that, I'll build a frame around the cabinets and sheet it in plywood, probably teak. The finishing touch will be to build a custom top with a padded rail.

I searched for "Show us your bar" and didn't see any huge hits. Sounds like you got a potential for a new thread.

Hey thanks. I'd never even heard of the HFH Restore. Now I've got to go check one out.

My bar:





Closeup of the taps:



I take credit for everything other than actual granite bar... I didn't built it. It was in the house when we moved in in 2000. It's solid panels of granite and isn't going to move any time soon. The only design issue (IMHO) is that the bar overhang isn't deep enough for people to sit at the bar comfortably.

The previous owner did make pretty intelligent use of the basement support posts without having to move them. They're hidden in the columns beside the bar.

That is one of the coolest basement ever, it looks like Chuck E. Cheese for grownups...

Steveo, this thread has some bars in it, maybe its a start.
