I recently finished my basement (man cave) and decided I wanted to build a bar. I am a huge fan of the modern but rustic look. For the top I used a live edge pine wood slab that had been air dried for 8 years. I also used reclaimed barn wood siding that came off a local barn in upstate New York. I have received many compliments on my bar, and have even had requests to build bars and other custom pieces for friends and family.
