Help with my man cave

Post  Jaskew82 on Mon Jan 11, 2010 9:58 am

Alright, so I am new to construction but I have some great help from some family members.

My first question (many more to come I am sure) is this...

I want to put a long "table top" a long a wall and just put some bar stools in front of it - much like what Dave Stanozsek did here. link The image is the first on the left.

Where can I find a table top like that?

I am also looking for a table like Blake Lunsford did
here.

Any help would be MUCH MUCH MUCH appreciated.

Jaskew82 welcome aboard! This is a great place to hang out and get ideas from. Check out the gallery, there are some kick a$$ caves here.

I'm stuck with my garage as a cave and it serves 3 different purposes. So whenever I make a plan, all 3 (garage, workshop, cave) have to be taken into consideration. I had no idea the cave would become my main entertainment place but that's how it's worked out. The swing down bar was designed because I needed a bar-like place to sit and have a cold one, didn't have enough room without sacrificing parking space for a conventional bar, which I'd love to have, and the only place I could put one was between the garage doors on the center post.

It's really a matter of how handy you are. I love fooling around with power tools, and tackling a repair or project. I'm currently building rolling drawers to fit in the spaces below the elevated shelving on the right side. I've done some other improvements so it's time I get off my butt and get the pix posted. I need more space.

The swing down bar is 2 pcs. of MDF board 3/4", layed one on top of the other for a total thickness of 1.5". This was for sturdiness. They're glued and screwed and then I glued a piece of laminate on top. Finally I put corner molding on the top and bottom edge to "finish" the raw edges. One big a$$ hinge, a support leg on the other end (also hinged) and voila! A dry bar! It swings up against the wall because I thought it would be in the way when using the garage for parking. It's not, and I only put it up once when painting the floor. I won't get rid of it but I'd really like a conventional bar, but I don't want to sacrifice anything else. It's very sturdy, and works well for me. Email me and I'll send a few tight pics.

While I'm thinking about it, tell us about yourself and your cave. Where's it at, what's it got, what's it look like?
