The Bar: Part 1

Post by Bill

For the Sartosa Campaign that I’m running with our group, one of the group scenarios that I wanted to do is to have a bar brawl ending with the Imperial Police coming in and arresting everyone. This is the Bar that was created for this, sorry I didn’t take pictures earlier on in the construction, it kind of starts a third of the way through.

The rough dimensions of the bar are 2″ high doors, 2 3/4″ high walls, base is 14″ x 18″ and the bar is roughly 12″ x 16″ inside.

The balsa was in 4″ wide strips and I cut 4 of them to 16″ and then notched the corners on two of them to make room for the Posts in the corner.

The floor was installed using liquid nails, and a good chunk of the construction was done using this as well.  All of the planks were drawn with a ruler and pencil.
