If you have a bunch of old wood laying around from a project, here is an alternate idea to throwing it all away.
This is my retro tiki style bar. I had just finished building a new deck and had a pile of old deck wood sitting in the yard. I decided to build a retro saloon/tiki bar out of it one day. I had absolutely no plans or ideas of what it would look like or how to build it. My goal was not to buy any wood for the project. Overall, i bought three pieces - the bar top and the sheets for the roof. Overall cost including screws and bolts was $202.
Here are some pictures of the build and the final project. It even got its own Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/pages/Driftwood-Saloon/1381029402131252?ref=hl

Just be careful when you belly up to the bar in your favorite aloha shirt
May we all get to have a chance to ride the fast one
Walk away wiser when we crashed one
Keep hoping that the best one is the last one

Really great work. I wish my parents had a bar in their backyard instead of just a swingset growing up

Nice re-purposing of the wood. Snag some Tikis to share the space...your drinks will even taste better. Keep on building!!!
