I acquired two big shipping skids, so I broke them down and decided I would build a bar out of them. The most difficult challenge was taking wood apart. I used the Ryobi reciprocating saw with a metal blade to cut through all the nails. I built the frame out of 2x4s, glued all the components and used my Ryobi drill to hold it together with 2" deck screws. Then I took all the pallets, cut them to length using my Ryobi miter saw and glued all the front pallet wood to the frame. After the glue had time to dry I used my Ryobi brad nailer. The top is pressed tiger stripe oak. It was actually left over from a 20+ year old bed my parents were getting rid of. The entire bar was stained with ebony Minwax and treated with high gloss polyurethane... the entire project cost me nothing in materials... well maybe just the cost of the screws...but it'll be a nice profit after I sell it
