Very cool. This is just a stupid comment to keep this in "my replies" so I can follow.

It's been a lot more work than I originally anticipated. Probably have around 30 hours invested so far. The majority of the hard labor is done, a ton of sanding ahead of me though. If it turns out half as cool as the picture in my head it will be worth it!

Finished sanding with the orbital sander 80 grit, 150, then 220. Wiped it down with a tack cloth. Rubbed on Arm-R-Seal Gloss an oil/urethane mixture thinned down by about 20% with mineral spirits. Will probably do one coat per night for the next 5 or 6 nights to get a glossy finish and protection from spills on the bar. Time to start on the live edge bar top.

I started on the frame last night. The base is finished with an insert for the chest freezer and storage space on the side which will be used for glasses or a mini fridge I’m not sure yet. I attached 6 heavy duty casters to the bottom to allow me to move it.

I need to figure out exactly how I’m going to attach the slab before building up. My best idea so far is to use a 1/2” piece of plywood to cover the entire frame like a lid, and then use door hinges to attach it to the frame. Door hinges will allow me to remove the slab if I ever need to move it. The plywood will sit flush with the top of the freezer without attaching anything to the freezer. In case the freezer craps out I’ll be able to switch it out fairly easy. When the slab is finished I will position it how I want it on top of the plywood and attach it from the bottom.

The last picture is the 2 slabs lying next to each other. Going to join them this weekend if the weather is nice.
