Customer Project: Thunder Bar

bar rails

At Hardwoods Incorporated, we are always impressed by the creativity and talent of our customers. They always find new and interesting ways to incorporate our products into their projects, creating exceptional custom bars for home and commercial use.

One of those great, creative projects is this “Thunder Bar” built by Shane.

Shane told us he was talking with his daughter, who was months away from her wedding, about an idea he’d had years ago to build a bar out of a 1966 Ford Thunderbird.

His daughter thought it was a great idea, and said it would be great if Shane could complete the project in time for her August 2019 wedding.

The bar’s super structure is 2” x 2” square tubing with the car’s disassembled panels mounted to the structure.

Shane used our Chicago bar rail moldings and radius corners in oak, as well as three sheets of oak veneer plywood, to create the bar top.

He began the project in April and it was finished the day before his daughter’s wedding on August 3.

Shane plans to sell the Thunder Bar and use the proceeds to give his daughter and her spouse a nice wedding gift.

Great work, Shane, and thanks for sharing your project with us!

I purchased the BR 475 Chicago Bar Rail in poplar for the the bar that I recently built and completed in my new basement man cave. The rails arrived quickly, were carefully packaged, and worked perfectly. Using the on-line video instructions and tips on your website, the cutting, installation, and finishing of the bar top and rails was very straight forward. I used an ebony color stain and topped it off with three coats of semi-gloss polyurethane. It looks phenomenal! I would highly recommend Hardwoods Incorporated to anyone interested in purchasing a bar rail for their project. Exceptional quality and amazing results.

Thanks,
