Default My Basement Bar Build

It has been a long process, but I'm nearing completion on my basement bar build. I'm finishing about 1800 sq. ft. in my basement by myself, so it has been 2 years in the making. Down to a little grouting, paint, drop ceiling, and carpeting, which I plan on completing over the next couple of months. I should have the slate in the bar grouted this weekend and we finally settled on a paint color for that room, so I'll update the thread when it's done. As you can see, my log bar stools are work in progress. I got all 4 for $50 on CL, so the need to be refinished. Anyway....here's the progress.

Beautiful bar top. From the second picture I thought you had trimmed it and squared it up! That would have been a tragedy

Yeah, the second one is for the countertop on the cabinets behind the bar. I would have kicked my own a$$ if I would have even considered cutting the bar top. Just posted the rest of the pictures that are current up to today.

My ex-father-in-law had one built into his new house. I loved it. He isn't a brewer though and has no taps.
