Anybody have plans for a homemade bar?

looking to build one and didn't know if any of the online companies selling them were helpful or not.

I bought my plans from these guys:

http://www.precision-images.com/


They have all sorts of designs. Some fairly simple and some not. Fast service and nice plans.

While not pictures of my bar per se, you can see it in a couple of pictures in my gallery.

Let me know if you order from them. I'll have a couple of tips for you if you do....

Search "bar plans" on e-bay too. I've seen them there as well.

I built my own. Mine is 8 ft by 3.5 feet, 4 feet tall, oak top with pine on the sides, used 2x4's for the frame, built in less than 3 days of work. It looks good, is very functional, and has plenty of storage, cabinets, and a spot for a fridge under it. Soon it will have a tap tower and a keg system installed!! The whole bar cost me about $200 in wood and materials. Of course, you need to know something about saws, woodworking, etc.

Four feet tall, for real? That's 48 inches tall.

Mine is just a hair under 43 inches and I was thinking it was a tad too tall. That is one of the things I was going to mention to FULLSACK if he bought plans from the place I linked to.


What kind of barstools did you get, and from where?

I'm an idiot. My wife has been on my @ss to build a bar since we moved into our house 3 years ago and I haven't. I don't know why I haven't seized on this opportunity.
Actually, I was a little intimidated by the planning. that site should make it easier.

I built mine too., Simple 2x4frame with a 2 inch thick pine slab on top, with bark still on the outside. Shiplap 1/6s to box in the frame. Brass footrest from Kegworks.com. Make sure your bar overhang is sufficient to make sitting under it comfortable.

I built a room addition so I could build a bar so I had to design it to fit the space I had. My wife wanted a bigger house so I made a deal, I build the room and I get a bar and she was happy with that....
