Used Home Bars For Sale

New Year’s Eve and everything in between, you are sure to get plenty of use out of your home bar. We have you covered – our home bars for sale come in a wide variety of styles, shapes, and sizes. So whether you are the type who always hosts large parties or more intimate gatherings there is a home bar to fit your needs. Whether you are looking for a bar cabinet, wine storage, corner bar or stand-alone bar, The Home Bar Store by Home Gallery Stores carries all types for indoor and outdoor use. Stand-alone bars are what you traditionally think of when you imagine a home bar. These can either be straight or have wrap-around edges. These are designed to be placed near a wall with room for a bartender on one side and guests to eat and drink on the other side. Typically, these will have shelves and storage but there are designs that are very simple and utilitarian with only a bar top to serve or hold a few objects. Bar Cabinets and Hide-a-Bars both have shelves and doors for glassware, beverage, and other bar accessory storage. The difference is hide-a-bars more closely resemble an armoire or wardrobe because the shelves and other compartment are contained with doors that you cannot see through. Bar Cabinets may have visible shelves and glass doors to better show off and display your entertaining items. Wine cabinets and other types of wine storage are made specifically to safely store multiple bottles of wine and wine glasses. These can range from very large, ornate cabinets that can hold dozens of bottles or simple wine racks to hold only a few bottles. Corner Bars are smaller than bar cabinets and are designed to fit in corners or other awkwardly shaped areas of a room. These are a great option because they provide plenty of bar storage, take up less space than a traditional stand-alone bar and can help fill dead space in a room.

In this post I am going to show you step by step how to build your own home bar and show you the tricks the pro’s use in building bars for night clubs and restaurants. I will also show you mine that I finished last year. Now some of you are going to ask how is this farm related and my answer to that it is not. But… if you live way out in the country there aren’t many bars or night clubs to go to so I plan to build one at home so we can have friends and family over and I will not have to drive those country roads at night after drinking where there are lots of critters that like to dash out in front of you. My wife and I have a date night every Friday night and we like to go to  bars that serve food with our cocktails and  we love to get some hot wings or some other bar type grub. We are going to miss that when we live in the country, so I am going to create a pub at our home similar to the bar I built here at our current home. When I did a post about Plan Your Farm one of the steps was to be a DIY kinda person or have a willingness to learn to be and this is a perfect example of that. Living out in the country there aren’t dozens of tradesmen like in the city to help you, so it is best you learn to do these things yourself and most of all it isn’t that hard. It’s all part of the philosophy of being self-reliant and there is nothing like the feeling of a job well done and the satisfaction of doing it yourself. The first step is to plan where your bar is going to be and what shape you want it to be. I went on-line and looked at hundreds of home-built bars to help me decided. I decided to build a dry bar (without a sink) and to make it L shaped.

I spent about 900.00 us dollars to build this all oak bar, but as you can see from the pictures of other readers bars, you can use different materials and do it for much less.

The bar after the oak veneer plywood is added. I used 1 1/2 ” wood screws to attach the veneer to the frame and I only put screws at the bottom, top, and corners where it would be covered up by the oak trim pieces, so they wouldn’t show.

I then added the oak trim pieces, I used a 1×8 on the bottom and 1×4’s to trim it out the rest of the way. The trim gives it detail and depth and hides the seams where the plywood comes together. Pretty simple so far, the next step is to build your bar top, this is where it gets a little more complicated. To give your bar that professional bar look I would go with a Chicago Bar Rail to rest your elbows on when at the bar. It cost about 12 dollars a foot but to me it is worth it. If you decide to build your bar top using a Chicago bar rail this  requires two pieces of  3/4” plywood one on top of each other. I bought regular standard sheet for the bottom and another oak veneer sheet  for the top.As  you can see from the illustration from above how  your bar rail sits on the bar top. Your bottom sheet has to be 1” 9/16” wider then your top sheet where you are going to have your Chicago bar rail. I made sure I cut the bottom sheet so I would have 10  inches of overhang on the bar where people will sit and your bar stools will be. This gives you enough room so your knees don’t hit the front of the bar when you sit on the stool and straddle up to the bar. If you use a foot rail you might go with more of an overhang. You screw the bottom sheet from the top on to the frame. Then you rip your top sheet remembering where the bar rail will have to be 1”  9/16” less then what you cut your bottom sheet. You then screw the top sheet onto the bottom sheet by screwing under the bottom sheet. Use 1 1/4 wood screws so your screws don’t come through the top of the bar. Now you can add your bar rail to your top. You have two options here, you can go with a rounded corners or you can go with mitered corners, or you can do what I did and do one of each. I would suggest you go with mitered corners, because the rounded corner is 125.00 each and is also a more difficult to cut your top to fit on the rounded corner. For a video showing how to cut a mitered corner on the Chicago bar rail (Click Here) Mitering the bar rail is easy, just use a 2×4 and set your bar rail onto the 2×4 where the bar rail sits on the bottom sheet of your bar top. You don’t need a biscuit joiner like in the video, just make sure your screws are long enough to go into the bar rail and short enough so they don’t come through the top of your bar rail.

Here’s what David had to say about his project.“I made mine with oak veneer MDF to save on cost, I got the solid oak corbels on eBay for a song. I couldn’t get the bar rail locally in Scotland so I used solid oak molding made by my local joiner. The detail is solid oak skirting board. And the resin top turned out fantastic – that was a great idea, thanks. I have really enjoyed doing it.> The wine rack and sofa and extras are all made from reclaimed wooden pallets that I got for free. It was officially opened New Year’s Eve… Magic!”
