I completed this project earlier this summer.

The Gazebo was purchased from Home depot and I built the back wall and bar.
I wish I could say this was in my backyard but sadly, it was built for a friend.

The project took me about two weeks to complete, with the majority of the time spent on the bar tops. It was designed to support a television and house a mini fridge.

This is strictly a hobby for me and I’m always appreciative when people approach me new types of projects, especially large ones. And who doesn’t love working with Cedar ?!

Quite the nice setup and build. Wonderful work! What did you finish/seal the wood with for the outdoor abuse?

Nice work. That setting requires a pool I think. But it looks like it could house some enjoyable get together’s.

Looks great! And I am more than a little jealous of your friend who gets to have such a great outdoor bar.
