The bar rail and bar top kit are great and the instructions are easy to follow and do. I’m not much of a finish carpenter but it came out great. When Paul says he is available to help at any time he really means it, he called back very quickly both times I had a question that was holding me up. Gr…

Used the radius corner instead of a miter for this bar. I’m a little touched in the head as far as making my projects next to perfect. No problems what so ever with this product. Paul was on the money as far as total measurement with the radius.

Purchased the radius corner railing. We needed it in birch, that was no problem. It arrived on time and fit great, matched the straight pieces perfect.

Absolutely beautiful product that came ready to assemble.
However, what was more important to me, as a DYI weekend warrior, was the outstanding customer service on the back end that Paul and his team provided. From the time he spent on the phone to the excellent documentation that came with the bar kit and YouTube videos. They made my first bar a breeze.
I can not recommend this company or their products enough. Great people and product.
