And we're paddling at the deeper end of the county gene pool too.
So, assuming you take a break away from then dueling banjos, any new music Lil?

That works, though the Stones version can't be beaten if paired with Vietnam War gunship footage.

Well, I've just finished building my pub in my man-cave, so anybody ever down in Durban, feel free to drop in for a pint (or 10)... Still got to put up badges and memorabilia, lots to do!
Cheers,
Alex

I like that, I need a dedicated bar like that, that is going to look so good with militaria added. Cam. net, parachute canopy draped from the ceiling?
I keep moving booze around because I can't make up my mind how to make best use of available space for beer & bourbon, militaria, man cave souvenir type stuff, diy tools.
At the moment its just bourbon on the bar / work bench & bottled strong dark beers on shelves in a corner, everything else elsewhere.
A major drawback to alcohol fuelled bad behaviour is the laminate flooring, spillages will ruin it.
You seem a bit short on beer - or is it all under the bar?

Yes, fridge is under the bar, within easy reach of my perch. And when I fall off the bar-stool, it'll be easier to reach...

At the moment I'm hypnotized by the human metronome in this video, I stumbled across it searching for "Kosheen".

Something soft to land on rather than tiles?
I thought of putting fridges under my bar / bench but they probably wouldn't do the laminate any good & I'd have no where to put the tools.
Did you make the stools as well, they co-ordinate nicely, not that co-ordination is a criteria of bars in man caves for manly men doing manly things.

No only tiles, just have to make sure I land on my head so as not to cause injury...
Yes, the bar-stools were made by the same guy who supplied the wood. I just gave to chap all the dimensions of the wood I wanted, which he cut for me. I then had a couple of fun afternoons with my adult size lego set putting it all together

I've still a way to go with my bar & the man cave in general, more shelving, book cases & lights I still need to have adapted for mounting on the wall.
I need a proper, dedicated bar along the lines of yours, I may get around to cobbling together an inferior version in the garden.

Nope, got a shed is full of ex's crap waiting to be shifted at some point. I have no bar. I could put a bar in, but a bar for one would make me seem something of a lush? Oooh must measure the RSF bomb...just remembered.
