It took MUCH longer than I planned but the bar finally is finally DONE! There were a LOT of mistakes made, I won't torture myself and point them out, but overall I am reasonably happy with it and it functions perfectly. The pictures from my crappy Canon camera DO NOT do it justice. It really is much nicer looking up close.
I found a bar online that was similar then I just made up my own plans in Google Sketch Up. Now I need to build some proper stools for it!
