EYC's Glorious Homemade Bar Plans
The bar seen in these photographs was made by four college students with $200 and about two weeks. It's easy to build, cheap and looks fantastic.
After looking at other do it yourself homemade bar plans on the internet, we decided that none would ever be quite as awesome as a bar we designed ourselves. We made an extremely manly expedition to the local home depot to check out our different options. As the resident sculptor, I was chosen to draw up some plans.

If your desired bar room is smaller than ours (12x24) than I would suggest making your bar 6' long instead of 8'.
