Each of the two side panels is constructed from two long and two short boards. Use a circular saw to cut four 2" x 4" boards to lengths of 42". Next, cut four 2" x 4" boards to lengths of 15". Place the shorter boards inside the longer ones to form a rectangular frame. Secure the boards with nails.
Use a circular saw to cut two 2" x 4" boards to lengths of 42". Next, cut two 2" x 4" boards to lengths of 84". Place the shorter boards inside the longer ones to form a rectangular frame. Secure the boards with nails.
Use a table saw to cut two pieces of MDF to fit over the side panels. Next, cut one piece of MDF to fit over the front panel. Apply glue to the edges of the front and side MDF panels and fasten to the frames with nails.
The side panels connect to the front panel via two 4" x 4" posts. Cut two 4" x 4" posts to lengths of 42". Position one side panel and the front panel at a 45-degree angle with one post at the intersection. Toenail the pieces together to form one bar corner. Repeat with remaining corner.
Cut a piece of MDF to dimensions slightly larger than the bar to allow for overhang. In this project that would be 21" x 86". Apply glue to the underside of the MDF bartop and fasten to the front and side panels with nails.
Paint or stain the wood as desired to give the bar a finished look.
