Screw in each brace board with four 1¼″ screws, two on each end. You could also add one in the middle of the top cross brace to secure it to the frame. Cut the top trim board, leaving extra length over each side to add embellishments. Sand the piece, and then screw in the trim with three 1¼″ screws. Arrange the headboard planks to your liking and screw each board into each cross brace with one screw in each spot. You will have a total of two 1¼″ screws per plank. Stand the headboard up to see if there are any unruly boards that need extra attention and to make sure the frame is solid.
It is a good idea to use a countersink bit while pre-drilling the holes for the screws, so no screw heads will be sticking above the bar's surface. Now, stand the bar base up and set the top of bar in place. Screw the bar top into the block of base if possible for tightest bond. Use six 1¼″ screws (three per pallet), one for each block. This bar was so heavy and awkward in my house, but I love it outside! For a style like this one, use a green stain, or another color of your choice, and finish with polyurethane.
Make sure you leave enough space between the supports to allow the bar top to fit over the bar base with block pallets sitting inside long stringer sides. You can glue these to the inside of the frame or just hammer them into place, as they will be secure once you screw deck boards into them. Screw deck boards into vertical support boards and horizontal side stringers with ten 1¼″ screws, two per board. It is a good idea to use a countersink bit while pre-drilling the holes for the screws, so no screw heads will be sticking above the bar's surface.
