Customer Project Spotlight: Mark G.

Our customers continually surprise us with their creativity and craftsmanship in using our products to create their own custom bars. Today’s project comes from Mark G. at the Great Sacanaga Lake in Latham, NY. He wanted a place where he could gather to host parties, and also a space he could enjoy on his own. When he started planning his project, Mark scoured “countless websites” to design what they did and did not like in the pictures they saw. Additionally, he says the guidance of the team at Hardwoods Incorporated helped him refine his design into what it came to…

Paul-

Please post this anywhere you deem appropriate-

…I would like to share a few words about my experience with Hardwoods Incorporated and in particular, Paul.  I’ve never built a bar before.  Very new to this.  Paul walked me every step of the way, took countless phone calls and gave me invaluable advice.

The best part of my experience was receiving the products I bought.  I custom ordered quarter sawn solid oak bar top kit and rail kit.  The quality of the product was impeccable. And talk about an easy process!! All of the bar boards were labeled with tape including numbered pieces and arrows to show me exactly where they went.

Lastly, the curved radius corners are end grain and will come darker.  It’s a natural consequence of end grain.  To help it match, I sanded it a little more, taped it off after installation, and applied a wood conditioner.   This conditioner helped it soak up less stain.  I then stained the straight rails with a few extra coats.  The finished product was fabulous.

Pictures coming soon!!!!

Grateful customer,

The quality of the product was impeccable.

I received the rail material very well packaged and in short order. Dimensions were exactly as advertised, so no surprises there. I finally have our bar completed and everyone loves it! The maple rail really compliments the mahogany in the bar top. I’m glad we went with your company.
