Traditional wood bar arm rest molding with cropped corners.

When building a home or commercial bar of any size or shape at some point in the process you will need to decide how to deal with the corner or corners of the bar rail molding. The standard option for navigating turns in bar rail molding is the simple 90 degree mitered corner. Although this option may be a fast and easy way to make the corner it can result in a somewhat sharp edge at the very tip of the miter that can be a little tough on your guests.

BR350 Poplar Bar Rail Molding

Hello,

I don’t know if you ever get follow-up from customers regarding the products they buy from you, but I thought I would send along two pictures of how I used your bar top kit when finishing my basement (DIY) and adding a full bar.

The top itself is maple and the bar-rail and drink edge are walnut.  Both are treated with tung oil and several coats of wipe-on poly.  I get so many compliments on the wood, and I’m happy to direct people to your site.

As for the rest of the bar and back bar, the front and side of the bar are oak veneer over MDF with 3/4″ red oak rails and stiles, moulding, and baseboard.  There are also some corbels under the bar top.  The back bar is pretty much the same on bottom with the veneer and the the upper part for the beer glasses is all 3/4″ red oak.

Thanks for providing such a wonderful product.  I and my friends and family will be enjoying it for years to come.
