So im kind of on hold for a while I ordered a tv mount and a "in the wall" hdmi cable, so I can run it in the wall from the tv to the bar!

Attachment 95357

This is the corner where the tv will be mounted I need the mount to find out where to position the wood which will be my mounting point. There will also be an outlet, hdmi, and a cable that runs to the bar

Attachment 95358

On this wall there will be an outlet, cable to the tv, cable for fios, hdmi, and left and right speaker jacks (the wire runs through the ceiling encase I decide to install speakers in the future

I was able to put up some drywall today, I also converted my kegorator (which is in the living room during the build) to hold 2 cornies and kegged my first beer! Its just a nothing fancy plain lager, I still need to install a dual tower but I have a picnic faucet for the second keg for now

Still waiting for parts to arrive in the mail! In the mean time went and picked up the flooring and started going over the plans for the bar. I got the plans from a website: http://www.precision-images.com/ to build the L-shaped bar. The plans call for wood and quarter round to "make" an arm rail, but I think I would rather buy arm rail, does anyone know a good place to buy it?

I made my own, but almost any local millwork place, ougth to either be able to mill it for you, or order it. Last time I checked on prices chicago style bar rail was around $26 dollars a foot for red oak, and $36 for cherry. There probably are a few places that you can order from online, but the shipping is going to kill you. If your handy enough to remodel like your doing and build a bar, you are capable of making it yourself, and saving a big pile o cash. Really a good table saw, router, and miter saw are all you need. The lumber you will need is 10/4 thickness, and since your doing all the millwork, save even more money by buying rough sawn lumber.

I've constructed the same bar as the plans you showed. It was very fun to break out the ole wood working skills again. 5 years ago it held empty beer cans and such but now it holds all my beer making supplies. Lol

I think I would rather buy one, im too afraid of putting all the time and effort into making one and either screwing it up or just not being happy with it.

The plans are great, I plan on using them for the majority of the build, but I am going to upgrade the top and face of the bar. The plans are more of a budget build.
