This bar and deck took 19 pallets; it makes a 12×13 deck. 3 of the pallets are in the build of the bar. The top of the bar is made with 1×4 smooth pine, then covered with polyurethane. LED lights were added and then other things here and there. This project took me, alone, 20 hrs. Only working 4 hrs. A day, five days. The T.V. was added, along with a dorm size fridge.
