Looking mighty good so far. I am in the same process myself right now. I have a thread here on that as well. Just waiting on my 10ft long lump of solid oak for the bar top itself.
Not meaning to hi jack this thread by the way, just seeing a lot of parallels here.

Wow that looks great! Are you going to do a drip tray? Im still undecided, and don't really know how to go about making one

Started putting on the trim work today, im pretty much learning as I go I don't normally do woodworking! Not sure If I should put molding inside the boxes, and what type of molding, or if I should just leave it the way it is. Anyone have any suggestions??

It looks good to me without a molding there.

A cabinet maker would often put a decorative edge on those boards before assembly, but they have the shaper blades to do it easily.

A molding can help to hide any gaps between the frame and the panel. It doesn't look like you have any worth worrying about.

I can think of one other reason to put a molding there. The frame will collect dust on the horizontal surface you are pointing toward. A molding that is thin at the edge where it meets the panel and tapers to wide at the edge where it meets the frame will help to shed the dust. That wouldn't be a big enough reason for me to decide though.

It really comes down to what style you want to see. Simple, plain frames or more decorative molded edges.

Going to include a beer gutter at the bartender side of the bar top. Going to be very heavily varnished oak (6+ coats) with a slight angle to a drain hole and tube going to a container at the back of the ceramic surface. Will post photos when I do it. A picture is worth a thousand words so they say.
