Really nice build, going to look good in the spot, in the house when it is done. I also like the color and wood combo.

Lookin good! Hopefully I'll get a chance to renovate my basement in a few years, and when I do I plan on doing a built in bar. I love seeing how you guys here on HBT do your builds to get idea's. That cove cutting on a table saw would save a LOT of money on bar rail...

By my estimate pre-made unstained red oak bar rail would have cost me $280, after shipping, for the amount needed. I made mine for around $130. That's $8.13/ft rather than $17.50/ft. Thanks for all the comments . I am looking to finish this weekend and I will total all my costs.

what type of trim did you use on the back side? The same bar rail you made or did you do something different?

When I cut the stepped portions out of the bar rail I ended up with (2) 3/4"x2" and (2) 3/4"x1" strips. I used these to the trim on the back side of the bar total 20'. I then made some shoe and quarter round out of the remaining strips from the shorter step for a total of 16'. I bought another true 2"x6"x8' plank and made 16' of 3/4 qtr rnd, 16' of 2"x1" base board, and 64' of 3/8"x1" strips to cover seems and corners. More pictures to come.

Well here are some pictures of the finished product. I ended up at a material cost of about $400 but I would say I have a damn good bar for $400 bucks.
