awwww, that's nice of you to say. . . I've already convinced myself that if I am ever out of work, my "get by" job will be building bars. This project was a lot of fun and much simpler than I thought it would be. Wonder what the market is for custom built bars?

hey, I'm doing research to make a dry bar for my apt. yours looks great! it's the nicest one I've found so far. I was wondering a couple things about it, how tall is the bar part in the front vs the back? and how wide did you make yours? I was thinking around 40 inches tall for mine and 15 wide, a little wider for the counter behind the bar for mine. how did you do the framing for the corner?

looks great for a first time job!

Oh! and to the Atlantic Construction guy: how did you do the lip on the bar? it looks really good!

can you use a different kind of rail for the foot rail other than the one on the kegworks site? they look really nice, but I wouldn't want to spend $100 + on just the foot rail!

That looks good, especially for you first one! The custom bar/cabinetry business is tough, there is a market, but it's not easy.

Foot rail and bar nosing (bar rail) can be purchased from any cabinet supplier. If you do some searches on the internet, you'll find a few sites, but neither is cheap. Both will cost you upwards of $15 a foot, give or take.

yeah, I noticed the post was pretty old after I posted it. I hoped they could still answer some questions though.

Chesca - foot rail isn't cheap, whether you go with brass or stainless steel, you can expect to pay roughly $15 a foot, plus mounting brackets and end caps. If you Google it, you'll find several sites that sell it.

The lip you are referring to is called bar rail, or bar nose. Again, if you Google it, you find several sites where you can buy it premade. It's commonly available in oak, maple and cherry, and sometimes you can find it in sapele (mahogany). Again, expect to pay roughly $15 a foot for that unfinished, depending on species, obviously, oak and maple will be less than cherry, sapele will be your most expensive.
