Question: Does the hinge hardware lock at 90 degrees? Or is there something that keeps it from getting kicked out or in while it’s down?

We don’t drink, but the concept can be used for much more than a bar.
Nice execution and good looking too.

Swirt, you found the weak spot. At this point there is nothing to keep it from being kicked out. I am trying to figure out how to prevent a problem.

Obviously Swirt has a point, but it’s built. It’s done. It’s nice. I think you’ll be fine.

If you don’t get too drunk, you’ll probably never have a problem… however I don’t condone soberness… it’s a bar, you should get real drunk and let the chips fall where they may.
