If you're really motivated, you could hand-cut your wood inside and then use a good vacuum for the cleanup. The mess won't be as bad as with a power saw. I'm not saying I would want to do that but it beats balancing your beer on the skeleton of a bar.

I hear that! No thanks on hand cutting wood though. I did find some time today to "Skin" the frame with the Birch plywood sheets. Will work on the bartop/backbar this sunday. Gotta try and have the bar in working order before the superbowl-its gonna be tough though.

correction: The stain used is "Espresso" not ebony...more of a very dark brown than black. Will add pics when I get off duty in the morning.

The growlers were a one time deal. i bought all 13 the seller had.

Here's some pics of the first coat of " Espresso" stain...(Sorry for the crappy pics(it really needs to dry longer) will be adding a 4"x1" border of Pine stained "cabernet" with 2"x1" pine vertical pieces every 2' to cover the few seams I have...
