    On the YouTube video for installing the bar rail, how do you make the spoil board, what are the dimensions? Also, what is the recommended number of teeth on the saw blade you’re using?

    Thanks in advance, in the final planning stages and finishing up the bar top here soon and preparing myself for the br475 purchase.


    • saleshardwoods says:

      Hello Jim,

      The spoil board suggested in the video is 1″ x 2″ actual size. A good 80 tooth or better combination blade is suggested as well. Safety first, always wear safety glass and secure the work piece.

      Thank you,

    We are building an “L”-shaped basement bar. We have a CAD drawing if needed. The the bar side lengths are 4’6″ and 6’10”. We plan on ordering the 21″ BR 475-S Top Kit(s) with matching front Trim Bar Kit(s). Also 12″ corners for bar top and fluted columns for bar front.

    Which of your readily available woods do you recommend for the rich, deepest color wow factor?

    Before I get into too much trouble, what advice can you give us?
    Ph# is 616 502-7604.
    Do we need a sample kit? If so, cost?

    Hi, I need the glass rack molding in walnut in approximately 5.75”. Can you cut that length? I can buy the 2’ pieces and cut myself, but if you can it would be a lot easier. I need 4 center and 4 ends, so one 2’ piece of each would do it. I have a bar back with mirror from American Heritage, but they have gone out of business. Just trying to add additional storage as it only hold one glass per slot….so 6 glasses. Thanks

  4. Tony says:

    I purchased walnut rails from you guys, the 475 version and it is going to look great. Still working on it but coming along really good. I see these bar side and am interested. I have nothing for that side yet but interested highly. If you you could inform me more about it, that would be great. Thanks again for the rails.

  7. Jim Mager says:

    Received my samples on Friday and have been having fun trying to figure out the correct look.

    Did I read correctly that ya’ll will do the 45 cuts too? I’m lacking in the ability to do those correctly! LOL!

    Please contact me with more information, hoping it’s that easy! 🙂

    BTW the sample pack is a great idea. I saw where I made my mistakes on the bar top….fixed them…now ready to order.

    Thanks and look forward to hearing from ya’ll!

  8. James says:

    I have a 8.5’ by 5 ‘ bar. I think the 6’ and 9’ BR475 would work. Question though on the corner, what is difference of the 6” and 12”? Id like these in oak.


    • saleshardwoods says:

      Hi James, The 6″ radius makes a tighter corner than the 12″ but given the size of your bar either one would work. I will contact you directly by email with more information. Thank you for considering Hardwoods Incorporated.

  9. Joe Jakubowicz says:

  11. David Armes says:

    I am installing bar rails on the top of my bar. I will need One straight 6′-4″, one 4’3″ and one 3′-4″. Also I need two 45 degree bend pieces all in oak. I saw the straight pieces but did not see the 45 degree bend pieces. Do yo make them in a 45 degree bend. I would like the 475S Bar Rails.

  12. Jesse Vanderski says:

    Hi I was wondering how wide the wine glass slides are the middle and the edges

    • saleshardwoods says:

      Hello Jesse,

      The centers measure 3″ wide and the ends are 1-7/8″ wide.

      Thank you for your interest in our products.

  13. Frank Sirianni says:

    I am constructing a home bar with a top of 4ft wide by 21ins deep can I get what I need with the width plus 2 sides at 90Degrees out of an 8FT length of BR158 ? I figured it is going to be real close

    • saleshardwoods says:

      Regarding your question about the bar rail molding I believe it would be difficult to get all the lengths required to cover the 4′ and (2) 21″ sections of bar top edge due to how the cuts elongate the required lengths. I will email you more information directly. Thank you for considering Hardwoods Incorporated.

  14. Chris says:

    My bar is 10.5ft (125in) long and 1.5ft wide with a 90 degree angle. Are you able to produce a custom length? Or what combination of lengths do you recommend?

    • saleshardwoods says:

      Hello Chris,
      I would suggest 1 @ 12′ and 1 @ 2′ to allow for the miter cuts. I would be happy to assist you further by phone if you like.
      Thank you for considering Hardwoods Incorporated.

  15. Matt says:


    Question on what length(s) to buy.

    front base = 5′ wide
    sides base = 2′ wide

    One @ 6′ and two more @ 3′?


    • saleshardwoods says:

      Hi Matt, Thanks for your question. Based on the dimensions you provided and considering the proper bar top overhang, I would suggest purchasing 1 bar rail 7′ for the front and 2 bar rails 3′ for the sides which will include the miters. Let me know if I can be of further help.

      Thank you for considering Hardwoods Incorporated.
