After pulling the trigger on some BR475, I anxiously awaited its arrival. My order arrived on time and was well packaged to protect the pieces during shipping! One of the lengths was a 15-foot segment that required it to be cut in half and biscuit jointed. When mounted, the 2 pieces lined up perfectly with grain matching and everything. After all said and done, it was well worth the money and I would highly recommend Hardwoods Incorporated to anyone.

BR475 Red Oak Bar Rail Moldings

Hi Paul

The bar is finally done…whew!!!!… It was a long road since first we talked in March. Here are some pictures. On your bar top there is no stain…only 3 coats of Poly. The bottom is cherry with a basic red stain and 2 coats of poly.

Thanks again for all of your help and patience!
