Fitting Bar Rail Radius Corners & Straights

Although all of our bar rail molding both radius and straight are made to meet or exceed industry standards for fit and consistency, it may be necessary to scribe and adjust the placement of the seams to achieve optimum results. This is especially true where curved parts intersect with straight parts as the conditions on the job site can vary from those under which the curved and straight parts were made. Not to worry, you can make slight adjustments out or up of either the straight or curved part to make a near perfect transition then sand and feather in the moldings to meet each other perfectly for finishing. Our bar rail moldings cover the main bar top by at least 1″ so it would be no problem to slightly shim out or push in one end or the other of the rail to close a miter or seam. We are not advocating sloppy or inaccurate work but are rather pointing out a few tricks of the trade that we feel are acceptable when making minor adjustments during the bar rail installation process. Our goal is to assist you in producing a fine finished bar top. We also recommend visiting our Bar Building Resources page to view our How to Install Bar Rail video and our Finishing Your Bar Rail tutorial for more details. As always we welcome your questions and encourage you contacting us by phone or email prior to installing or purchasing your bar rail molding.

Thank you for considering Hardwoods Incorporated.

Hi Hardwoods Incorporated,

My wife and I built a bar in our basement, and we used your bar rail BR-475. The end result has been awesome! We were able to create a professional look and feel to our bar without paying someone a hefty fee to build it for us.

I even used some of the left over rail to build a workstation table for my home recording studio. The purchase process was easy, delivery was timely and the price was very reasonable. Here are a few photos of both the bar and the workstation table.

We would recommend your products and your company to any DIY weekend warriors out there. Let me know if you would like progress pictures as I have them as well.

Thank you!

This was perfect for the completion of our new bar. Product was expertly made and packaged to prevent any marks. Customer support was fast and courteous after I mistakenly ordered the wrong species.
