Default Basement Bar Build

After two years of falling over in the new house, I got the clearance to build something to lean on while drinking homebrew. Figured I put this thread together to keep the pictures in one place, and maybe get an opinion or two from HBT members.

Basically going to end up being about and "L" shaped bar with both sections being about 8 feet long, still up in the air about the finishing of the bar top, I by no means am a carpenter but have figured out how to use a saw and drill over the years. Anyway, framing is finished hoping to have it skinned with plywood by the end of the week. Cheers.

At this point no, another project that will be happening in the house shortly is a bathroom reno. While the plumber is here I will probably have a small sink installed next to the refrigerator that you see in the background. No exactly idea but the wall next to the kegerator is concrete due to a fireplace clean out that is located on the other side of the wall, so that location is pretty much what I am stuck with. The wall that is to the left of the refrigerator is a bathroom, shouldn't be hard to tap into those lines.

Cabinet Grade Ply, or something stainable with a nice looking grain pattern

A maple would look really nice, and a black top with some lights reflecting down.

I was able to get the outside of the bar covered with plywood, nothing different on the inside. Started playing with an old router I have around the house to get some practice, the footrest is my next goal.
