The bar each corner is made of two boards. You can use pocket holes to connect the boards to form the corners and to help hide screws as I did. If you'd like to use a jig to make four or five pocket holes, then run a bead of glue and connect the boards using two and a half inch screws. If you don't have a jig, you can simply connect the boards with normal wood screws and glue. Next, we can construct the rest of the frame for the bar. The frame is made completely out of 2x4 boards and cedar fence. Pickets are added on the sides later now when assembling the frame, I used a combination of glue and wood screws.
You want to first per-drill prior to inserting the screws to help prevent the wood from splitting and once all four of those legs are connected, go ahead and add the center supports. Add the lower stretchers to form a bottom shelf and to strengthen the overall frame. I used a couple of 3/4 inch thick scrap boards as spacers to prop that shelf three-quarters of an inch up from the corner legs. Now you won't see the screw holes from the front side since they'll be covered with pickets, but do use pocket holes on the bartender side.
If you'd prefer not to see screws, you can measure up from the bottom to determine where the middle shelf supports will go. Feel free to modify the shelf Heights as needed to accommodate larger coolers or taller glasses then attach the rest of the shelf, supports use clamps to help hold the boards in place, while attaching them. If you don't have a helper out in the shop at the time. The upper shelf connects to the frame with wood screws and will be perfect for storing glasses and other small items. Add small blocks to each corner, so we have a larger platform to mount the wheels to in a later process.
Now that the frame is complete, we'll attach the cedar, pickets, use, wood glue, and either screws or nails for this process and I'd actually recommend assembling the shelves before the siding. So you have a little bit more lighting and better angles to use your nailed or the drill work. Your way from one side to the other and rip a few of the boards as needed on a table saw to get the exact widths for some of the side boards. The shelving process goes really quickly, but do take time to rip the boards as needed to get a perfect fit. Then move on to adding the pickets around the front and two sides connect the pickets to the top middle and the lower 2x4 stretchers.
