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!

In that case, I think I will make my first appearance at Casey for 2011. See you there Fan and Redleg.

Looking forward to it. Could you organize outside heaters please.

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

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...

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.

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!

$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).

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo
