Bar Shelves

I am very new to carpentry and I was hoping to get some help on my new project that I will be starting. I have an 8 tap keg refrigerator and I have attached a picture to show you exactly what I have. I want to build shelves on each side of the fridge and have one large shelf going across the top. I have also attached a hand sketch picture of what I am wanting to do. The shelves will be displaying liquor bottles and glassware. I need to have nice quality wood because this will be on display at an event venue. Where should I begin with this project? Also how should I attached the shelves?

Is this the way your sketch should be?

Yes. The black part represents what I would be building.

That shouldn't be too difficult. I would make a wood countertop to cover the fridge and build the shelving unit onto it. That way you could just set it on the fridge and wouldn't have to fasten it to the wall or anything.

Make sure to seal it well: if you're using those taps, sooner or later something is going to spill, and probably get under the wooden base.

Despite that, I agree with Steve Neul. Building a new countertop and fitting the shelves into it (preferably into dados, glue and then screwed in from the bottom) is going to be the easiest way to do it.

the counter looks to be roughly 16-18" deep (front to back)?

I'd strongly recommend considering some method to fasten / stabilize the shelving to the base unit.
drunks and tall top heavy tippy things is not a good mix . . .

adding to the issue " . . . at a venue . . " I infer means the floor / counter may not be real flat&level in all cases.
