Game Room Bar

This is my second build and it turned out bigger than I expected for starters. At 7.5' long with a 30" return, it's made out of 3/4" Baltic Birch plywood frame and cabinets, 1/2" Poplar moldings and trim (made), with 1.25" Red Oak face frame, drawer fronts & counter tops. The tops were charcoal gray stain, while the base and cabinets were all slate gray. I really enjoyed this build but it was tough building in my somewhat cold detached shop.

I learned a lot on this project. The bar rail miters were actually tricky to cut since you can't lay it flat to cut the 45 degree angle. You need to set it on a ply base as you would in the bar itself. If you don't, when you set the rail and the bar side be comes elevated it changes the angle and the miter no longer fits. Also full extension drawer slides are super finnicky lol. Also, homemade molding is not that difficult to make and can be really simple but have a huge impact on a project.

Happy Building!!!
