It's looking good! I'm so jealous. I can't wait to see pictures when it's done.

Thanks. You'll have to come over for a beer the next time you're in Esky!

I got quite a bit more done this weekend.

Trim is totally done and started to put the top on


Another view of the trim. My helper is making an inspection.


Got the TV mounted and the Dish Network guy came to run their line and install the new HD DVR.


Top is done and caulked, bar stools all put together. Got these at Big Lots for only $35 a piece!


Back trim is on.


Another view of the top.


TV area cleaned up a bit with panduit installed. This is going to be our "old school gaming station" with NES, Sega/SegaCD, Dreamcast, and Gamecube. I don't have any of it wired together yet, but Toad is holding down the fort.


Now I just have to get working on the draft system...

Looking good, but I'm not sure I'd want to sit in front of those hinges... they look like they're perfect height for slamming knees.

Yeah I had realized that might be an issue but I don't think there's anything I can do about it unfortunately.

What about some sort of rubberized/padded box to go around the hinges, but only fastened with another hinge on top so that the bottom can swing freely as the lid opens?

Does that make any sense?

Maybe...once I get the bar rail on there's going to be a good 13-14" between the end of the top and the base, so I'm not sure how much of an issue it's going to be. We'll see.

Just came across this thread, definitely subscribed, can't wait to see the end result! Oh, and the only problem I could see is that Red Wings poster, haha!

You have no problem with the Winter Classic plaque in the last pic? I was at that game and I'm pretty sure the Wings won that one.

Just bustin' chops....Chicago is looking scary this year and Detroit is playing very very inconsistently.
