I had to take out my internal stairs to give me more living space upstairs and I'm using the stairs as my downstairs bar. See if you can find an 'L' shaped already removed timber staircase and chuck it on a base of brinks and you've got yourself an instant bar! I'm having a crack at a pizza oven now. In Queensland we can eat outside during winter.

thats not a bad idea that.... mind you i have absolutely no idea how.

I wish I had two garage's.

Hello Redleg.

yep, lucky man i am. the people i bought the house from used it as a kids room.

anyone know how to build a timber bar for my spare garage so i can sit there drink beer and watch tv?

Step 1: Construct Side Frames

Each of the two side panels is constructed from two long and two short boards. Use a circular saw to cut four 2" x 4" boards to lengths of 42". Next, cut four 2" x 4" boards to lengths of 15". Place the shorter boards inside the longer ones to form a rectangular frame. Secure the boards with nails.

Step 2: Construct Front Frame

Use a circular saw to cut two 2" x 4" boards to lengths of 42". Next, cut two 2" x 4" boards to lengths of 84". Place the shorter boards inside the longer ones to form a rectangular frame. Secure the boards with nails.

Step 3: Cut Front and Side Panels

Use a table saw to cut two pieces of MDF to fit over the side panels. Next, cut one piece of MDF to fit over the front panel. Apply glue to the edges of the front and side MDF panels and fasten to the frames with nails.

Step 4: Assemble Bar

The side panels connect to the front panel via two 4" x 4" posts. Cut two 4" x 4" posts to lengths of 42". Position one side panel and the front panel at a 45-degree angle with one post at the intersection. Toenail the pieces together to form one bar corner. Repeat with remaining corner.

Step 5: Construct Bartop

Cut a piece of MDF to dimensions slightly larger than the bar to allow for overhang. In this project that would be 21" x 86". Apply glue to the underside of the MDF bartop and fasten to the front and side panels with nails.

Step 6: Complete Project

Paint or stain the wood as desired to give the bar a finished look.

Finally put picture of Melbourne team on the bar or hanging over it and clutter room with other Melbourne memorabilia.

Glad to be of help. Next!

holy crap!

my bar should be an L shape - about 2m for the bottom of the L and probably about 3 for the long part of the L - im yet to measure - and itll be on a concrete floor. ill also need a bit of a shelf on the "inside" of the bar but that should be easy enough with some brackets...

how would i make sure the thing didnt fall over? should i use some glue on the concrete floor or something? haha yeah i really have no idea what im doing...

Yay!

I can't make it Sunday but the outdoor heaters are around the $300 mark at Bunnings.

So you might want to do the old "it doesn't work so can I please I have my money back" trick on Monday.

Store credit?

That's a hell of alot of light bulbs...

This is...wow.

I hope this is a cut and paste job.

That's impressive.

A good solution to make sure the bar doesn't fall over is to have two people leaning on it from opposite sides. Preferably they should be of similar weight.

Yes, but you have to drink 4X and watch bloody rugby on the TV.

Little Creatures all the way for me and I'm proud to say I was the only Queenslander (after 22 years I'm now comfortable saying that) not to watch the origin decider on Wednesday night! I'm a bit disappointed you didn't throw our lack of daylight savings in my face. I have no response to that!

I just had a terrible coffee and it cost me $4.30.

Also, this thread is by far the most interesting thing I've read today.

$4.30 - that's highway robbery, especially for a terrible one. Was that a tall or regular ?

$3.40 gives me the heart starter (*cough*) I need. Lavazza. If anyone can better that I'm reading (as opposed to listening).

    TRAINING: Tuesday 28th May 2024

    Veteran Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin returned to the training track to bring you the following observations from Gosch's Paddock this morning. Beautiful morning for training. The dew has dried, out from AAMI, quiet chatting. Maysie does his heart symbol. 7 in rehab, Turner, Hore, Sestan, BBB, Petty, Spargo and Schache. All in runners. Melky weighted and change of angles work. Salem has his individual program. White cap (no contact), Howes, Woewodin and Sparrow

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th
