    By far the best bar rail and the company has exceptional customer service. I had some questions in a Saturday and they called me the same day and helped me out tremendously.

    I could not be happier with the product or the service from Paul and his team. They shipped all of my Red Oak bar rail to Abu Dhabi, UAE. It was very well packed and arrived quickly and in flawless condition.

    The rail was all perfect. Installing it, even for a first timer like me, was very easy after watching the video on this website.

    The only thing that I couldn’t find was what dimensions to use for the spoil board when cutting the rail.

    I called Paul, and he told me to use a 2″ tall x 1″ wide spoil board.

    Fantastic service and products!

    I purchased the red oak rail to match the pattern of the bar. It is truly amazing how it completed the look of the top. It is alway the first thing people notice. I was nervous about receiving a split 10′ piece, but the biscuit joint worked out great and you can hardly see the seam. Thanks so much for a great product.

    I was most impressed by the quality of the packaging, the timely delivery service and most of all the quality of the Bar Rail itself.

    I wanted to have an authentic look and feel to the Bar in our basement and I have achieved that goal, so thank you again. If anyone asks, I will have no problem in recommending Hardwoods Incorporated.

    The accuracy of the routing allowed the two 90-degree and 2-45 degree turns of my bar fit together like a professional. Also, the information about offsets of the bar top were right on the money allowing everything to form a strong and long lasting bond. My bar has been finished for almost 2 years and I can detect no shifted or warping at all.

    I have built two bars and for each I used th BR 475 bar rail and radius corner in red oak and have been completely satisfied with the product and service each time. The shipping is fast and product very secure to prevent damage and they provide a lot of videos and instruction on how to install the bar rail. I wished all business operated the way Hardwood Inc. does business.

    I’m so glad I went with the 475 bar rail. The mahogany
    Grain on the main 12′ run is so stunning. The first thing people notice is the rail,they just run there hands across and can’t believe how beautiful it is.

    When planning on building a restaurant. I went to a lot of local mills for the product i wanted. Hardwoods had the best selection of Mahogany. The bar looks awsome.

    I only have the pieces cut, but so far everything has lined up perfectly with the dimensions provided on the cut-sheet.

    I will provide pictures when the bar is completed.

    This was my first time purchase from Hardwoods, Inc and I was very impressed! With Walnut you never know what color you might get but the grain/color was outstanding. Very impressed with the way they package the rail for shipping! Definately know where the next bar rail is coming from when a customer requests it!

    Delivery was fast. Bar rail and radius corners were a good fit and should finish well. Cost of radius corners was awfully high compared to the straight rail.

  21. 5 out of 5


    Bar rails came in 2 days. The packaging was excellent and they even supplied a few small pieces in profile to use for checking the fit and to make matching side pieces much easier. One of the rails came in two pieces with the bicuit joint cut and ready to go – the grain matched perfectly so you almost can’t see the joint.

    Excellent customer service. Paul was a great help to me, his answers to all my questions were very convincing. My BR 475 bar rail was delivered exactly the way he said.Also, the Installation was much easier than I expected thanks to the video. Now I have one awesome bar. I recommend Hardwoods Inc.

    I purchased BR-475 cherry bar rails from Hardwoods Incorporated for the 10 foot long bar that I have built. The rails matched perfectly with the solid cherry bar top that was fabricated from two 2-inch x 12-inch rough cut cherry boards. The rails were shipped as two 5-foot sections and one 2- foot section. The pre-slotted biscuit cut and biscuit provided by Hardwoods Incorporated allowed for easy alignment and connection of the two 5-foot rails. The seem is hardly noticeable. Miter cuts were used to join the 2-foot end rail with the the main 10-foor rail. The installation details given on the Hardwoods Incorporated web site as well as the finishing instructions that were provided with the rails were very helpful. I am quite pleased with the final result. The finish on the bar top and rails is beautiful. The bar rail molding gives the bar a professionally built look. I will forward photos of the finished project.

    Arrived quickly and very well packed. Didn’t expect it would be finish sanded from the shop. Rails do need to be very thoroughly sanded for best look.

    I am extremely pleased with Hardwoods Incorporated products and services. Paul was extremely helpful in putting together my order. The maple bar top, glass rail, B475 bar rail (straight and radius), and column fronts were all high quality mill work. I was also fortunate that they are located nearby and I could pick up my order locally. I would recommend them to anyone that wants to build a beautiful bar that you can be proud of.

    Couldn’t ask for any more. Kept us posted on order status, product delivered safe and well packed. Overall a great experience for a first time customer.

    The quality, service, and delivery of the bar rail could not be better … I could not be more satisfied. Thank you.

    I got the courage to build a home bar and some of the sites and plans that I used suggested Chicago Bar Rail. I ordered mine from Hardwoods and everything arrived perfectly and quickly. When it arrived I couldn’t wait to get the bar built. In hindsight I should have considered using the pre-made bar tops from Hardwoods. I ended up glueing oak boards together. It will look nice but took a lot more work.

    I would recommend using Hardwoods if you are building a bar.

    I purchased Chicago rail for my bar project. The order was processed quickly and the products arrived surprisingly quickly. The installation instructions were excellent. The rail really “made” the appearance of my bar. Its fit and surface preparation were ready to finish. I heartily recommend Hardwoods Inc for anyone’s bar project.

    I purchased the walnut bar rail and was extremely happy with my purchase. The rail gives the bar a completed look! Fast shipping and good customer service!

    My wife didn’t want to clunky of a bar rail and this fit the bill perfectly. It looks phenomenal complete. One of the rails was damaged in shipping which was quickly corrected at no cost to me. Shipping was quick. Paul provided exceptional support. Even a non-experienced wood worker can put theses kits together.

  40. 5 out of 5


    Great product and I highly recommend. This was definitely the finishing touch for my bar project. I would like to personally thank Paul for his professionalism. I had a couple of questions, when ordering, and again when cutting and assembling. He was very helpful and informative. I highly recommend this rail to anyone who is building a bar. It truly makes all the difference.

    Excellent product, exactly as described. The ordering process is easy as well. I will certainly use these products again.

    Built a 27 linear foot, “L” shaped bar for my neighbor’s new restaurant using BR475 bar railing, 6″ radius curve, and drip edge molding made of Red Oak.

    Shipping took about five days from order to delivery using UPS. The material arrived very well packed and with no damage.

    Each piece was unpacked and carefully inspected. Absolutely no tear out and all surfaces appeared ready to finish with no additional preparation. The ends were dead square and the biscuit joints perfect — all joints glue ready. The quality of the mill work was exceptional.

    The installation video is short and to the point. It does a great job of describing the process, materials needed, and tools used. While I knew how to do the work it’s not something I do frequently. Viewing the video yielded some very useful tips and mentally prepared me for the task. Installation went smooth and fast.

    All surfaces were finished by spraying four coats of Mohawk 2K ISO Free Polyurethane. The finishing instruction on the Hardwood Incorporated website are well worth reading.

    The restaurant owner and I are extremely happy with the results. The railing looks great, joints are tight, and the wood matches. The BR475 design is comfortable and attractive. We will definitely go back to Hardwoods Incorporated for the next build.

    The one thing that I would do differently is to order individual pieces as long as possible to reduce the number of joints. In my case this would have required using a different shipping method as UPS limits packages to 8′. That takes longer and probably costs more. Everyone tells me that the joints are so tight they don’t notice them but I know they’re there.

    Paul was awesome at getting me exactly what I was looking for. Even with international shipping I had the product in less than a week. These bar rails are EXACTLY what I was looking for and couldn’t find anywhere else in Canada. Thanks again!

    Just built a small bar in the basement of my home. Ordered the bar rail from your company. I live in Kansas city Mo. area and getting bar rail locally is not easy. I had exactly what I needed from Hardwoods Inc. at my door within a week from ordering.
    Thanks again,
    Steve Stewart
