Cool and unusual home bars

Custom Craftsman Home Bar.

Check out this cool and unusual home bar custom crafted by Dave in Florida using his old truck bed, hardwood flooring and our BR450 Chicago style bar rail molding.

BAR PROJECT – 2022

I cut the bed off just before the tow truck hauled it away.

It was too big for my space, so I shortened it in the middle and in the front for a total of 12 inches. Welded it back together and painted it red. Flooring in an office that was being demolished was repurposed as the bar top.

Framing up the bar with scrap wood from our new house construction. A local craftsman, Geppetto, showed me how to make a pocket joint with a Kreg tool and we glued, screwed, and clamped the BR450 bar rail to the plywood base of the flooring material.

My wife mixed two colors of stain to get it to resemble the color of the oak flooring. We feel they complement each other and think it turned out great.

Since this is in the corner of my shop, I decided to go with the Craftsman theme and dolled up the bar like a race truck from the Craftsmen Truck Series. Tire is from one of Dale Jr’s. race cars. Dolled up the fridge to look like a craftsman toolbox. Kegerator hidden under the bar but remounted the tower on top of the bar.
The rail was up to the standards we were hoping for. Very pleased with the product and have had numerous compliments on how it makes the bar look like it was professionally built.

Thanks,

    I think the bar rail molding takes an average looking homemade bar to a whole new level. We have had many, many comments on how our garage bar looks like it should be in a commercial Sports Bar.

I received the bar moulding and bar top without any issue. I must say the entire process was great and it arrived much quicker than I had thought so thanks for the excellent customer service.
