Okay, we know, we know. This is not an outdoor kitchen pit and we normally do metal fabrication and BBQ Pit fabrication here at Pitmaker. But when our friends at Budweiser called, we HAD to answer! Nothing goes with good competition-level BBQ like Beer!
Bud Light decided to sponsor a Texas Music Band Tour with Randy Rogers and Wade Bowen. What better way for a Beer company to sponsor a music tour than with a bar on stage! They asked us, "Can you design a bar that can have a country music theme and look good on stage?", we said "Sure!"
Of course we added that Pitmaker flair! We designed and drew it out in AutoCAD, and then used a CNC Plasma to cut-out the solid 12 Ga. steel Bud Light logo. We then back-lit the logo with color-changing LEDs. We almost painted it with Bud Light Blue, but we didn't want that to clash with the country music theme, so we painted it with a hammered metal finish, to give it a different, more old-timey, effect.
For the bar itself, we welded together a solid 1-1/2" steel tubing frame with heavy duty 6" poly casters to handle the rigors of stage and road. To this we bolted and screwed our solid wood base covering.
We capped our project off with a custom stained oak bar-top and oak trim. We then took one of the solid steel Bud-Light logos we made and embedded in it for all eternity in Epoxy Resin! Beer forever! :-)
Here are some pictures of the Bar in different lighting settings in our shop. It was hard to light properly indoors for photos, but it looked perfect on stage! Here are also some photos we took at the House of Blues with Randy Rogers and Wade Bowen singing on stage together with the bar we made.
It just goes to show you... If you have a special project, we have the know-how to design it and help make it happen--especially if its related to BBQ or Beer in any way.
