Why Choose a Hardwood bar top Slab?

Hardwood bar tops make great additions to any home or commercial bar! Each unique slab comes with its own set of colors, wood grain, and flaws, giving your project an individual character. We at Hardwoods Incorporated have a wide variety of natural hardwood bar top slabs to choose from. No two hardwood bar top slabs are alike, meaning your project will be unlike any other bar top out there. Our solid one-piece bar top slabs can be routered with a soft bull nose edge to show off the full character of your new bar top while being a comfortable space…

Custom Commercial Bar Top

Pictured is a recently completed commercial bar top made from solid oak for a client in Chester, New York and manufactured by Hardwoods Incorporated using our stock bar top kits, glass rail & drip edge, bar top wings and BR475 Bar Rail Molding and radius corner.

New Shipping Specifications for BR475-S Bar Rail Radius Corners

Our BR475-S bar rail molding corners now ship with the skirt/apron portion trimmed back 1/2″ as shown below: This 1/2″ cut back allows for the adjoining straight section of apron to lap over onto the radius section and thus creating a visual offset. The offset adds strength to the joint, looks better visually and eliminates the need for perfect allignment with the seam on the actual bar rail molding itself. Please contact us with questions or concerns prior to ordering or when installing our BR475-S Bar Rail Radius Corners. Thank you for choosing Hardwoods Incorporated. Save

I finally finished the bar. The wood was perfect and we are very pleased with the results. We are really glad we went with wood vs granite for the bar top. Your tips on joining the boards and cutting the miter joint were very helpful. I did a few test runs and it turned out well. I ended up staining it with an oil based stain (mixed mahogany and walnut) and then finished it with multiple coats of waterlox. I still have a few details to finish (foot rail, etc) but I’ve attached a few photos of the finished bar top as promised. Thanks for your help!

Hi Paul:

Thanks for the opportunity to comment.

I would echo the many positive comments on the site. The ordered products (Chicago rail and trim) arrived promptly, in perfect condition and were of top quality. Included were some handy cross-sectional slices to use as templates, and good suggestions for finishing the wood. I am a total amateur and built a small bar which looks professionally done and gets me kudos from friends and family. Attached are a few photos of the finished product.
