    By far the best bar rail and the company has exceptional customer service. I had some questions in a Saturday and they called me the same day and helped me out tremendously.

    I could not be happier with the product or the service from Paul and his team. They shipped all of my Red Oak bar rail to Abu Dhabi, UAE. It was very well packed and arrived quickly and in flawless condition.

    The rail was all perfect. Installing it, even for a first timer like me, was very easy after watching the video on this website.

    The only thing that I couldn’t find was what dimensions to use for the spoil board when cutting the rail.

    I called Paul, and he told me to use a 2″ tall x 1″ wide spoil board.

    Fantastic service and products!

    Bar rail came exactly as described and Paul was extremely helpful when we spoke on the phone. I would give Hardwoods Incorporated my highest recommendation.

    I could not be happier with the excellent service and the quality of the bar rail. It definitely added to the professional look of my bar. Speedy delivery and easy to follow instructions from the website made this job a breeze to complete.

    I purchased the red oak rail to match the pattern of the bar. It is truly amazing how it completed the look of the top. It is alway the first thing people notice. I was nervous about receiving a split 10′ piece, but the biscuit joint worked out great and you can hardly see the seam. Thanks so much for a great product.

    Received product as ordered, the product was in perfect condition,and the quality was better than I had expected.I am now starting a new project and will get all my wood from Hardwoods Inc. Paul’s help made my bar build successful. Thanks for all your help.

    I was most impressed by the quality of the packaging, the timely delivery service and most of all the quality of the Bar Rail itself.

    I wanted to have an authentic look and feel to the Bar in our basement and I have achieved that goal, so thank you again. If anyone asks, I will have no problem in recommending Hardwoods Incorporated.

    I have made 4 purchases from Paul and am 100% satisfied. The orders all shipped very quickly and the quality of the molding is fantastic.

    These guys rock! Of course I screwed up a cut, and whammo, Paul shipped me a new order ASAP!

    5 stars

    The accuracy of the routing allowed the two 90-degree and 2-45 degree turns of my bar fit together like a professional. Also, the information about offsets of the bar top were right on the money allowing everything to form a strong and long lasting bond. My bar has been finished for almost 2 years and I can detect no shifted or warping at all.

  13. 5 out of 5


    I have built two bars and for each I used th BR 475 bar rail and radius corner in red oak and have been completely satisfied with the product and service each time. The shipping is fast and product very secure to prevent damage and they provide a lot of videos and instruction on how to install the bar rail. I wished all business operated the way Hardwood Inc. does business.

  14. 5 out of 5


    I’m so glad I went with the 475 bar rail. The mahogany
    Grain on the main 12′ run is so stunning. The first thing people notice is the rail,they just run there hands across and can’t believe how beautiful it is.

  15. 5 out of 5


    When planning on building a restaurant. I went to a lot of local mills for the product i wanted. Hardwoods had the best selection of Mahogany. The bar looks awsome.

    Perfect ☺

    I am really happy with the way the bar turned out.i ordered the rail and it arrived 3 days later.great service and couldn’t be happier.

  18. 5 out of 5


    I only have the pieces cut, but so far everything has lined up perfectly with the dimensions provided on the cut-sheet.

    I will provide pictures when the bar is completed.


  19. 5 out of 5


    This was my first time purchase from Hardwoods, Inc and I was very impressed! With Walnut you never know what color you might get but the grain/color was outstanding. Very impressed with the way they package the rail for shipping! Definately know where the next bar rail is coming from when a customer requests it!

  20. 4 out of 5


    Delivery was fast. Bar rail and radius corners were a good fit and should finish well. Cost of radius corners was awfully high compared to the straight rail.

  21. 5 out of 5


    Bar rails came in 2 days. The packaging was excellent and they even supplied a few small pieces in profile to use for checking the fit and to make matching side pieces much easier. One of the rails came in two pieces with the bicuit joint cut and ready to go – the grain matched perfectly so you almost can’t see the joint.

  22. 5 out of 5


    Excellent customer service. Paul was a great help to me, his answers to all my questions were very convincing. My BR 475 bar rail was delivered exactly the way he said.Also, the Installation was much easier than I expected thanks to the video. Now I have one awesome bar. I recommend Hardwoods Inc.

  23. 5 out of 5


    Excellent product and service. I was able to build a professional quality bar from the rails hardwoods Inc has supplied.

    I purchased BR-475 cherry bar rails from Hardwoods Incorporated for the 10 foot long bar that I have built. The rails matched perfectly with the solid cherry bar top that was fabricated from two 2-inch x 12-inch rough cut cherry boards. The rails were shipped as two 5-foot sections and one 2- foot section. The pre-slotted biscuit cut and biscuit provided by Hardwoods Incorporated allowed for easy alignment and connection of the two 5-foot rails. The seem is hardly noticeable. Miter cuts were used to join the 2-foot end rail with the the main 10-foor rail. The installation details given on the Hardwoods Incorporated web site as well as the finishing instructions that were provided with the rails were very helpful. I am quite pleased with the final result. The finish on the bar top and rails is beautiful. The bar rail molding gives the bar a professionally built look. I will forward photos of the finished project.

    Arrived quickly and very well packed. Didn’t expect it would be finish sanded from the shop. Rails do need to be very thoroughly sanded for best look.

  32. 5 out of 5


    I am extremely pleased with Hardwoods Incorporated products and services. Paul was extremely helpful in putting together my order. The maple bar top, glass rail, B475 bar rail (straight and radius), and column fronts were all high quality mill work. I was also fortunate that they are located nearby and I could pick up my order locally. I would recommend them to anyone that wants to build a beautiful bar that you can be proud of.

  33. 5 out of 5


    Couldn’t ask for any more. Kept us posted on order status, product delivered safe and well packed. Overall a great experience for a first time customer.

  34. 5 out of 5


    Excellent quality. Couldn’t have been more happy with the rail.

  35. 5 out of 5


    The quality, service, and delivery of the bar rail could not be better … I could not be more satisfied. Thank you.

  36. 5 out of 5


    I got the courage to build a home bar and some of the sites and plans that I used suggested Chicago Bar Rail. I ordered mine from Hardwoods and everything arrived perfectly and quickly. When it arrived I couldn’t wait to get the bar built. In hindsight I should have considered using the pre-made bar tops from Hardwoods. I ended up glueing oak boards together. It will look nice but took a lot more work.

    I would recommend using Hardwoods if you are building a bar.

  37. 5 out of 5


    I purchased Chicago rail for my bar project. The order was processed quickly and the products arrived surprisingly quickly. The installation instructions were excellent. The rail really “made” the appearance of my bar. Its fit and surface preparation were ready to finish. I heartily recommend Hardwoods Inc for anyone’s bar project.

  38. 5 out of 5


    I purchased the walnut bar rail and was extremely happy with my purchase. The rail gives the bar a completed look! Fast shipping and good customer service!

  39. 5 out of 5


    My wife didn’t want to clunky of a bar rail and this fit the bill perfectly. It looks phenomenal complete. One of the rails was damaged in shipping which was quickly corrected at no cost to me. Shipping was quick. Paul provided exceptional support. Even a non-experienced wood worker can put theses kits together.

  40. 5 out of 5


    Great product and I highly recommend. This was definitely the finishing touch for my bar project. I would like to personally thank Paul for his professionalism. I had a couple of questions, when ordering, and again when cutting and assembling. He was very helpful and informative. I highly recommend this rail to anyone who is building a bar. It truly makes all the difference.

  41. 5 out of 5


    Excellent product, exactly as described. The ordering process is easy as well. I will certainly use these products again.

  42. 5 out of 5


    Excellent quality, good service and delivery. The maple bar top and rail have taken the look of my bar to the next level and always get noticed by guests

  43. 5 out of 5


    The BR475 Bar rail is awesome. Great quality, fast shipping. All around great purchase.

  44. 5 out of 5


    Built a 27 linear foot, “L” shaped bar for my neighbor’s new restaurant using BR475 bar railing, 6″ radius curve, and drip edge molding made of Red Oak.

    Shipping took about five days from order to delivery using UPS. The material arrived very well packed and with no damage.

    Each piece was unpacked and carefully inspected. Absolutely no tear out and all surfaces appeared ready to finish with no additional preparation. The ends were dead square and the biscuit joints perfect — all joints glue ready. The quality of the mill work was exceptional.

    The installation video is short and to the point. It does a great job of describing the process, materials needed, and tools used. While I knew how to do the work it’s not something I do frequently. Viewing the video yielded some very useful tips and mentally prepared me for the task. Installation went smooth and fast.

    All surfaces were finished by spraying four coats of Mohawk 2K ISO Free Polyurethane. The finishing instruction on the Hardwood Incorporated website are well worth reading.

    The restaurant owner and I are extremely happy with the results. The railing looks great, joints are tight, and the wood matches. The BR475 design is comfortable and attractive. We will definitely go back to Hardwoods Incorporated for the next build.

    The one thing that I would do differently is to order individual pieces as long as possible to reduce the number of joints. In my case this would have required using a different shipping method as UPS limits packages to 8′. That takes longer and probably costs more. Everyone tells me that the joints are so tight they don’t notice them but I know they’re there.

    Paul was awesome at getting me exactly what I was looking for. Even with international shipping I had the product in less than a week. These bar rails are EXACTLY what I was looking for and couldn’t find anywhere else in Canada. Thanks again!

  46. 5 out of 5


    Just built a small bar in the basement of my home. Ordered the bar rail from your company. I live in Kansas city Mo. area and getting bar rail locally is not easy. I had exactly what I needed from Hardwoods Inc. at my door within a week from ordering.
    Thanks again,

    Bar rail worked great for my basement. Easy to install and best price that I had found.

  50. 5 out of 5


    The bar rail I received was everything promised and worked out great. It really added a professional finished look to the bar and I am getting many compliments. The detailed instructions and the website made everything easy.

  51. 5 out of 5


    Great product, great service, great shipping, etc. I was very happy with the product. Pay attention to your miters and you will not be disappointed with this. I purchased the red oak and finished it with only multiple rubs of Danish Oil. It looks great. Cheers as I drink a cold one at my bar!

  52. 5 out of 5


    Great service. I went with mahogany and very pleased. Service was great, guidance was great. Really I felt like I was dealing with a good ole lumber yard from the day where you would get recommendations, advice, etc…A+

    I had an excellent experience with my maple Chicago bar rail. It arrived safely packaged and in excellent shape. With careful planning (and measuring about 10 times to be sure!), I ended up with perfectly mitered corners and a great finish that matched my cabinets. Thanks for the great product and service!

  54. 5 out of 5


    I would echo the many positive comments on the site. The ordered products (Chicago rail and trim) arrived promptly, in perfect condition and were of top quality. Included were some handy cross-sectional slices to use as templates, and good suggestions for finishing the wood. I am a total amateur and built a small bar which looks professionally done and gets me kudos from friends and family!

  55. 5 out of 5


    Excellent product, prompt shipment, well packaged.

    Paul was extremely helpful with my BR475 order and also offered me a military discount. The wood was absolute beautiful and truly completes my custom made bar. Thank you Paul!

  63. 5 out of 5


    The person I spoke with, I forgot his name but I will never forget the service he provided to help me out with our project. The materials showed up on time and when I was told it would be. The product was EXACTLY as described and that is great. I have no hesitation in recommending Hardwoods Incorporated. I will do business with them in the future.

    This bar rail was the absolute best finishing touch I could have ever asked for. The product is a stunning finish and quality. In addition to the product, the customer service is first class. One of my rail sections was damaged during delivery and a new piece was shipped out immediately for me to finish the project. 5-star company. Thank you!!

  65. 4 out of 5


    That bar rail was perfectly manufactured and well wrapped for shipment. Delivery was prompt and customer service was great as well. I would highly recommend using this company.

  66. 5 out of 5


    I was a little apprehensive to buy bar rail on line because it was site unseen. Being very particular about this build I wanted the best. I was so pleased when the product arrived. Package was perfectly prepared and arrived the same way. The wood rails were beautiful as was the mill work. Thank you for such an awesome experience. I will not hesitate to order again anything from your company.

  67. 5 out of 5


    Great product , I decided on the Chicago style bar rail in pine and am very pleased with it .
    The bar rail was very well packed so had no damage . the pine matches the wild cherry wood i used for the bar top, and was very easy to install .

  68. 5 out of 5


    Excellent service and product. I was concerned with the 8′ length as my bar is exactly that long. I was asked to call when I was ready to order and when I did they offered to add an extra 1/2″. This put me at ease and was a fantastic example of customer service. The diagrams on the site were great in helping me prepare my bar for the rail and every fit just right.

  69. 5 out of 5


    Great product. Easy to select, order, and upon product arrival I was very pleased of the care that was taken to ensure that no damage would occur. Over all experience was excellent.

    This product was exactly what I was looking for to use when building my basement bar. The product was excellent and the service was great. I can’t recommend this site highly enough.

    Very good customer service and great product. Highly recommended

  75. 5 out of 5


    I absolutely, positively LOVE this bar rail! It added the perfect finishing touch to my bar. Exactly what I had in mind. It was very easy to work with, and that is coming from someone who has 0 experience constructing anything at all!!! I was petrified of the corners, and made a few mistakes, but Paul was only a phone call away, and was a tremendous help!! I would recommend this rail and this company to anyone!!

  76. 5 out of 5


    Great product, worked perfectly!

  77. 5 out of 5


    Very helpful support to assist my ordering the bar rail after I explained the bar design. The rail was great, something I just could not make myself. I am very satisfied.

  78. 5 out of 5


    Simply put, the railing was everything I expected and then some. The craftmanship was precise and the grains of each piece matched perfectly. An excellent company to work with. This is the seventh bar I have built and by far the best rail I have purchased and installed.Also this company provides an excellent tutorial on mitering the corners. Highly Recommend!

  79. 5 out of 5


    The bar rail looks great and was delivered as promised. The customer service experience was also very helpful. I was exited to get it installed and it met all my expectations. I would recommend this rail to anyone.

  80. 5 out of 5


    Great product and customer service. I had a couple questions about the miter cut and Paul was quick to respond and got me squared away. Bar looks great, can’t tell you how much the rail adds to the look.

  81. 5 out of 5


    The product was perfect and was delivered quickly. Good instructions on how to stain and varnish the bar rails was also very helpful. I had called ahead to speak with someone and the service was great. The rail adds so much to the appeal of the bar. I would recommend to add the importance of the support wood which was important in getting the correct cut angles.

  82. 5 out of 5


    Your rails are the perfect finishing touch to our bar. We used both the rails and the round corners. They fit like a glove. are easy to use for a first time “bar builder”. The videos made it easy. I’d recommend them to anyone. And thanks for your help on how to finish them.

  83. 5 out of 5


    Used for a new bar at Muscle Car City. Just the touch we needed for a professional look.
    The fit and finish of the materials was perfect
    Thanks you

  84. 5 out of 5


    This company is hands down A-1. The website was very thorough and answered a ton of questions that I had. Items arrived in perfect condition and very timely.

  85. 5 out of 5


    This was perfect for the completion of our new bar. Product was expertly made and packaged to prevent any marks. Customer support was fast and courteous after I mistakenly ordered the wrong species. Thank you.

  86. 5 out of 5


    Excellent service and prompt delivery. The quality is outstanding, and installation information was very clear and available.

  87. 5 out of 5


    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.

  88. 5 out of 5


    Excellence product and services. Quick shipping. A first time DIY’er here and couldn’t be more happier. The bar turns out nicely. Would highly recommended for anyone considered purchasing this bar rail.
