This was a basement bar project that I built with/for my best man and his new basement bar. The case is wrapped in oak beadboard paneling and red oak trim. The top was made from 4/4 QS Red Oak and the arm rail was a molding bought from the home center.

Thanks for the note. If it makes you feel any better the walls and concrete stained floor are “Packer’s” Green

That’s a really fantastic job. The sculpting makes it look like a really comfy bar to cuddle up to. You’re sure to have a prime seat!

I’ll have a Jack on the rocks and a Bud on the side….. Yep looks good to me. Also looks like you could add on if you wanted to. I’m wondering about the piece with the little hump on the top. Is that for looks or something to help keep things from being dragged off (accidents)? .......... “I don’t always drink beer…... but when I do….. I’ll drink any kind of beer.”
