What are standard bar dimensions? How tall is a standard bar? How wide should you make a bar top? How do you build a home bar? How do you install Chicago bar rail? How do you cut and install curved radius bar rails for corners?

These are the questions we receive all day, every day by wood workers, architects and contractors building home bars and commercial bars alike. Hardwoods Incorporated is now introducing our Bar Building Resources. Visit our new Bar Building Resource Center to learn

Thanks for the perfect supplies to make this project and many, many future memories.
