I made the plywood frame for the bar and cherry paneling, including cutting and finishing the boards. I cut and applied the trim, too. I purchased the teak upper counter top and worked it. Same with the lower maple work area, which I cut to fit. I wired the bar myself. I also purchased the cabinets. The bar is nine years old or thereabouts. The skirt is composed of three pieces of cherry. I bought the skirt pieces and paid to have the corner made and I fitted it all together. The skirt is solid and can bear weight.
