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).

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range

    THAT’S FOOTBALL by Whispering Jack

    As the season rolls on towards the finals and the football world witnesses the aftermath of the sacking of the league’s unsuccessful coaches, it’s almost  inevitable that the spotlight will turn firmly upon the complete and utter failure of season 2019 - the Melbourne Football Club.  For a team that finished in fourth place last year and was heavily touted as a premiership contender, the fall from grace has been dramatic. As things stand, the Demons look certain to finish 13 places down on

    THE MOMENT OF TRUTH IS COMING by KC from Casey

    At half time in Sunday’s game at Trevor Barker Beach Oval, things weren’t looking too flash for the flailing finals prospects of the Casey Demons. Key forward Sam Weideman had suffered a concussion in his first contest and, with a few exceptions, the team was playing like a rabble rather than a finals contender. The Demons were 23 points in arrears to the Zebras and their season was headed towards oblivion. It was the skipper Mitch White who spurred his team on by word and by deed - he fini

    RIPPING THE HEART OUT by George on the Outer

That’s it folks, Melbourne have set a new record for the most turnovers resulting in opposition scores.

    It’s a crying shame that we happen to be playing against the resurgent St Kilda just as they have managed to overcome a rotten patch of form with an upsurge in momentum resulting from the sacking of its coach and the appointment of a new one.    The Saints had a purple patch at the start of the season winning four of their first five games (including the one against the sloppy and sluggish Demons in Round 5) before collapsing into the sink hole that led to them parting ways with coach Alan

    RED AND BLUEPRINT 2019 by Whispering Jack

    The rusty red of the McDonnell Ranges and the blue skies above them provided the perfect backdrop that summed up everything about the Melbourne Football Club’s 2019 season. It set out the perfect red and blueprint for the club’s horror year. The club’s previous season was one of great promise but it ended in a calamitous way in Perth with an 11 goal defeat at the hands of the ultimate premiership side, the West Coast Eagles in a game where the Demons’ first goal came early in the third quar
