Part 2 of How to make cedar bar for your patio. The bar has caster wheels so it can easily be moved around on your deck. The cedar will withstand the outdoor elements and look great. LED lights are installed to make the bar shine at night. In part 1 of Episode 15, DIY Pete shows how to create an acid stained concrete countertop for this bar.

Move the base to the patio and install the concrete top. I like to run a bead of silicon around the top of the base prior to setting the concrete on it. This helps prevent it from sliding around. Then add a bottle cap opener and catcher to the side of the bar if you’d like!
Add LED lights to make this bar the talk of your next party or barbecue. I used 16 feet of LED strip lighting and ran it around the outside channel of the concrete. Secure the controller to the inside using velcro. The strip lights will secure to the concrete with the adhesive backside.
Have a barbecue and put your new patio bar to use! Cheers!
