    The Ye Olde Bridge Pub Bar is perfect build project for a man cave, bar, or kitchen table. Implementing the wood/metal into this project adds the "look" of rustic furniture that can handle the test of time. Adding the finishing touches to fit your project will set this apart from anything else you have seen. Having the bender was the key to getting the end caps smooth and one piece as trying to stack the edges would take away from the curves. We left the top and metal unfinished as to take on the environment but will take a good coat of oil and finish on the top along with a good clear coat would make this bar look nice for years to come.

    Check out the video...


    This is the build of materials and equipment we used:

    Equipment
    • Torchmate 4800 w/ FlexCut 125
    • MasterPipe Compact Profiler w/ FlexCut 80
    • PowerMig 210 MP Multiprocess Welder
    • Shop tools
    • Hydraulic press w/ bender

    Materials:
    • 4' x 10' Sheet of 11ga HRPO MS
    • 10' stick of 1.5" sch 40 pipe
    • Butcher block top
    • Rivets
    • Screws
    In the CAD I set up the file to take on a full 10' sheet and I nested all the parts. Obviously the 4800 is a 8' machine so I rip cut the sheet to a 6' and a 4' sheet to accommodate and made two separate cut files that included all of the pieces required.

    For the pipe was just straight cuts required so making the file in the winMPM was straight forward.

    Once all the components were cut then to tack the final assembly.
    The tricks that we did was made the inside holes a little undersized to accommodate the rivets along with mirroring the sides. Then was just able to hammer them into place because of the undersized hole instead of having to tack weld them and create the HAZ area around them.

    Provided are the plans I followed along with the CDL file.

    Let us know what you think and if you create your own version please post and share.

    Hey Chad! Do you have any details on the angles at which the flat plate was bent?
