This Incredible Homemade Sofa Bar Table Is Exactly What Your Home Needs!
Whether you are watching the big game or gathering friends to scope out the latest Game of Thrones episode, a bar will ALWAYS come in handy inside of your home. Unfortunately for most people it just isn’t feasible to create an entire bar area due to space limitations. A person by the username Kayweg found a large chunk of pine wood in his garage and decided to see if he could solve this dilemma. The results? A killer bar that was space-efficient and gorgeous to look at. Let’s follow his journey and see what you need to do in order to duplicate his success!
A sneak peek at the finished product.
We aren’t going to tease you along through this entire journey without telling you what to expect. Here’s a sneak peek at the finished product. Would you believe that this bar table started out as a simple slab of wood? Well, you should and we’re going to show you the step-by-step transformation process.
It started with a slab of pine
Scrounging around in his garage, Kayweg managed to find this slab of solid pine. Looks pretty different now, doesn’t it? Here we see that Kayweg has begun to plane down the material. Kayweg used a 3-inch planer and he had to pass over the pine several times in order to smooth it out.
Dad to the rescue
Kayweg gets his father involved with the process. Here we see Kayweg’s dad running a wire brush up and down the sides of the wood. The goal here was to clean up the rough surface while still retaining much of the character of the wood. We’re not making an Ikea table here; we’re making something with personality!
Cutting the wood to size
On the corner of the pine wood you can now see that there is a chunk missing from the frame. Kayweg took a chainsaw to the corner in order to get a rough, angled cut. Say it with us: something with personality. Kayweg is enthused with the rough cut and his dad just keeps on brushing.
