Our counter bar is designed to make bartending a pleasure and woodworking a breeze! The full length counter height worktop area provides plenty of space for mixing and serving. A standard size bar sink is located to the bartender's right. It can be used as a wet bar sink (when plumbing lines are available) or, as a dry sink, it can be filled with ice to "quick chill" your favorite beverages. Next to the sink, a recess is provided where you can install the mid-size compact refrigerator (2.5 to 2.7 cu. ft.) of your choice. The base cabinet to the left provides storage for bottles, glassware, etc and is designed to accept shelving mounted on adjustable brackets.
The bar top and countertop surfaces are protected against spills and water stains by plastic laminate. This is particularly important for any wet bar. The armrail provides the warm feeling of wood with rounded edges and radiused corners for the comfort of your guests. This bar can be constructed using Red Oak and Oak plywood for about $500 in materials. This estimate (which is itemized in the plans) includes all wood used, all hardware including sink, faucet, door hinges, shelf brackets, plastic laminate and all finishing materials. Alternate White Pine construction is estimated at about $350.
A brass foot rail can be added on for about $125. As with all of our plans, we provide sources for all materials including the brass rail parts. Overall Dimensions: 102 1/4" x 30 7/8" x 44 1/8" High
