Natural edge slab bar tops

Posted on:   |  1 Comment

Natural edge bar tops are usually made from one solid piece of kiln dried wood with the natural edges of the log exposed on one or both sides of the bar top. In our shop, the slabs are planed, straight lined on one edge if needed and then sanded to final thickness. When several slabs are required to make a large bar top, wood slabs cut in a sequence are preferred and used when available.

Because seasoned wood slabs usually have some of the bark still attached we take the time to carefully remove all the loose bark prior to sanding the natural edge, producing a smooth soft surface with a worn in look. The very ends of the slabs are also trimmed square if required. Once the slabs have been through our millwork shop they are ready to be crated and shipped to the customer. We also offer other milling services on bar top slabs  such as live edge relocation, cutting to length, jointing, and mitering.

Pictured below is a custom bar top milled in our shop using three sequence matched knotty pine slabs with natural edges. This bar top was finished 2″ in thickness by 27″ in width and measured 45 feet long made for a commercial bar project in Glen Burnie Maryland.

    I am looking for a live edge bar top to install. I have a 97 1/2″ bar framing and subtop. The subtop is 971/2″ x 22″.

Thank you for your 475 bar rails and lower wood trim. I am very happy with it all. My wife Michelle and I are very pleased with the finished product. It was easier than I thought it would be in the beginning, I love it.

Paul,

Precisely what was needed. I searched local hardware and lumber stores for a week and came up dry; nobody would even order pieces like this in for us. Hardwoods Incorporated to the rescue!Dave B 2Dave B. – Germantown Ohio
