DIY Chair mat...about an $8 piece of plywood cut for free at Lowe's...i used spray adhesive to fasten the newspaper & covered it with contact paper to protect paper from ripping...cheap & much more visually interesting than the expensive hard mats from the office suppliers ( in my experience, much more sturdy too)
Most bar moldings fit over a bar top made from two layers of 3/4-in.-thick material. The lower layer is usually plywood. The top layer can be plywood, solid wood, hardwood flooring, or even tile or stone. You won't find bar molding at home centers or lumberyards, but there are dozens of suppliers online.
