Bar Rail and corner was shipped as expected and within the holiday scramble!! Customer service was great and very helpful on the shipping info. I was impressed how easy it was to install, I m no wood worker…. following the steps within the Hardwoods site and it all seemed to fit together nicely. not sure if your supposed to but i did use a Kreg tool to pull the joints together worked great for me… Stained and after 5-6 coats of Poly looks pretty good. I hope to do an out side bar this summer and will be purchasing again.

Thanks Don L. – Brownsburg, IN
