Finished Bar Using Walnut Bar RailJust wanted to send a few pics and big thanks for all the information you guys provided both on your site and over the phone. The walnut bar rail worked perfectly and added that extra detail to really set the project off. The detailed measurements and diagrams made the build up process a snap so when the bar rail arrived it just needed to be cut and attached. Also, the care taken in packaging the rail made sure it arrived undamaged.

Thanks again for a quality product and great customer support.
