I think its great fora garage bar. Curious about the other side. Are the pallets just stood up on end? What's to keep them from falling over if leaned on?

The "L" is what's holding it up mostly. I also got some scrap 2x4's and screwed them into the long part of the "L" attaching the two pallets together. But yes they are just stood up on end.

I think if i put 2 4x4 vertical posts that it would be firmer. But its not to bad as is. It can be leaned on but i wouldn't want a 300lber drunk leaning on the very end of it.

I grabbed my wife and said I wanted something like it. Well not for the house but in the shop I am golden.

I am thinking maybe a Gilligan Island theme

On the tropical island theme (Amazon link)



I have an ugly junk freezer, I am thinking of this around the sides. The thing is too old and near death to be worth painting.

It's a bit of a luxury at $12, about 4x the cost of the bar.

I'm making my brewing stand out of Old pallets and scrap 2x4s. Just have to get the time to do it.
