Shop update #4 (12-6-17)
My cousin is having a party for his wife in a couple of weeks and asked me if I could make an outdoor bar for his back patio. I don’t have any way to transport it to his house if I build it at mine so we decided to build it at his house. I spent most of the day there on Sunday and we got it done except for the finish. I will need to return next weekend to put a couple of coats of spar urethane on the bar top and at least a sealer coat on the rest of it. I am very happy with how it turned out.
We made it out of 10 – 2×4’s, 2 – 2×8’s, and 26 cedar fence pickets. We used the 2×4’s to make a frame, the 2×8’s as the bar top, and the fence pickets as the siding. All the lumber, stain, Spar Urethane, deck screws, pocket hole screws, and assorted paint brushes came out to $175.00 at Lowes. I already had Titebond 3 glue, sanding discs, and staples so I would round it up to $200.
I shot some video but I’m not sure how it turned out yet. I will have plans available once I get everything written up.
