Here's the kegerator.

And here's the plan for the bar. This bar is called the "kegger bar" and is designed for the builder to install a "keg box", basically a refrigerator to house the keg with the tower coming out of the top and onto the bar top. Since I already have a kegerator, I scrapped the keg box idea and decided I would use that space for either a shelf for bottles, trash can, etc. and possibly a rack for stemware. I also have a mini-fridge that I use to hold bottles that will go into the bar.

I wanted to get an idea of where to put the kegerator and the height it would be at in relation to the work table and the bar top.

The work surface will sit flush with (or close to\"\") the kegerator top. The kegerator is currently on 3" casters but I will remove those and put the feet on it once the bar's ready to use.

This is the foot-board and the front corner of the bar. I used 1/2" birch plywood for the trim and 3/4" birch for the work surface and bar top. Attachment 61269

And here's the bar top! This is where I'm at right now. I still need to remove the casters from the kegerator, finish the trim, cut the arm rails, stain, and put some clear coat on the bar top. I'm thinking of putting the mini-fridge to the right of the kegerator and the shelves/stemware rack to the left. I'm also going to rotate the entire bar so that when you're sitting at it you'll be facing the wall on the right. I plan on mounting my 46" flat-screen on that wall.
