This bar and deck took 19 pallets; it makes a 12x13 deck. 3 of the pallets are in the build of the bar. The top of the bar is made with 1x4 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.
