22. What is a spoil board and what size spoil board do I need?

Posted on:   | 

A spoil board is a piece of wood used under the bar rail molding to help hold it in place when cutting or mitering as shown on the bar rail installation video. Each of our bar rail moldings require a different size spoil board size as listed on the chart below. Safety first, always wear eye protection and use clamps or fixtures to hold the molding securely in place when cutting. Unsure? Contact us before you cut.

H dimension sets vertical against the miter box fence D = Depth

BR158 – H = 1-5/8” x D = 1”
BR350 – H = 1-5/8” x D = 2-1/8”
BR450 – H = ¾” x D = 1-3/4”
BR475 – H = 1-7/8” x D = 1”
BR475-3CM – H = 2-3/8” x D = 1”
BR475-S – H = 1-7/8” x D = 1” * NOTE: The BR475-S bar rail molding ships in two pieces unassembled, the bar rail portion is to be cut and installed first and the apron last.
BR550 – H = 1-7/8” x D – 1-1/4”
BR650 – H = 2-1/8” x D – 1-1/4”

Ordered this for a new bar I recently built in our lower level. The quality of the wood and workmanship was fantastic. Shipping was fast and it was packaged well to protect it. Definitely gave a great finished look to the bar. Would purchase from Hardwoods Incorporated again.

From the quick response to my phone call to the quick delivery of the bar rail Hardwoods is great to work with. I looked at several different bar rail companies and found this product the easiest to use and the quality was superb. The end product is beautiful. My customer is ecstatic!!
