Bar-Planner is the "sectional" bar plans package that you can use to build a customized bar and back bar counter for your home or place of business. You can also include built-in (or free standing) appliances such as beer dispensers, wine coolers, ice machines, and multi-compartment sinks. The sections" (as illustrated in the animation below) can be positioned to produce virtually any arrangement. All of the sections shown are included in the plans and can be easily built by the novice woodworker.
Now, you can easily make your own 3D CAD drawing of your bar! As an optional enhancement to the power of Bar-Planner, you can now use Google SketchUp (FREE 3D CAD modeling software from Google) to create printable 3D color renderings of your custom bar designs. You can view your designs from any direction, zoom, pan, and print any view. We provide the 3D models in a "Sample" design drawing file which you can easily modify to suit your requirements. CLICK HERE to see a sample bar layout drawing created in Google SketchUp.

The Bar-Planner package is 100% Ready to Go! No need to wait for the copycats whose plans are "currently being revised" or are "under design".
Print directly from your files. Printing from your browser can be "hit or miss" especially when text and graphics are mixed together. Printing directly from a file provides more control over your print selections and usually better copies.
Optimized design saves time and material - Most parts can be cross cut from USA standard dimensional lumber to the sizes determined by the auto cutting list generator. If you buy your lumber in the nominal sizes determined by the Excel spreadsheet, you will save valuable time and materials. Unexposed interior ends, backs and shelf surfaces are particle board construction to reduce cost. Plywood parts are optimized to accommodate standard plywood width to save material.
