Product Description

BR 550 Bar Rail

BR550 Chicago bar rail in poplar, oak, cherry, maple, mahogany, and walnut hardwood measuring 5-1/2” wide and available in lengths from 2’ to 15’ long. Our Bar rails are cut with a simple notched-out profile to fit easily on to any bar top making applying it to your bar fairly simple. Perfect for the DIY bar top in restaurants, pubs, night clubs, home bars and man caves.

9′ Short Bar Rail Molding: Ships 106″ long in one piece by UPS with affordable rates nationwide.

INSTALLATION NOTE: The bottom notch on the BR550 bar rail molding is made at 3/8″ deep due to machining considerations. When using the recommended 3/4″ thick plywood sub top it will protrude out of the bottom notch, however this will not affect the integrity of the installation or be visible as the bar rail molding continues on its downward angle. We recommend lightly sanding the bottom corner edge of the plywood sub top prior to installing the BR550 bar rail.

PLEASE NOTE: All 10′, 12′ and 15′ bar rail lengths ordered online are shipped cut in half from a single piece, biscuit jointed and ready for re-assembly on the bar top with a near seamless grain match. This allows for affordable shipping via UPS. We also offer 10′, 12′ and 15′ bar rails shipped in full lengths (uncut) by LTL freight. Please call (301) 665-9505 for a quote.

    Installed their BR 550 Bar Rail (‘Chicago Rail’ in September 2017. The product was excellent, the price was right, the service was great, and the installation instructions gave good guidance. This is a 5 star product!

    Products are as advertised and customer support to answer all questions was excellent Product arrived as promised. Instructions and videos were very good and helpful. And the end result was spectacular. All guests ask about the feature. (We installed an 8 stool bar in recently finished basement using about 24’ of the bar rail. We followed finishing directions and the wood took stain and urethane perfectly)

    The bar rail was shipped faster than I expected, packed wonderfully for safe shipping, and was the perfect touch for my customer’s new bar. I ordered it extra long, and was a little apprehensive about the cut and biscuit, but once I glued it up, the cut line was barely noticeable as the grain matched perfectly. There were some slight marks from machining, but they sanded out easily.

    Highly recommend, and will order again.

    Bar Rail and corner was shipped as expected and with in 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 with in the Hardwoods site and it all seemed to fit together nicely. not sure if your supposed to but i did use a Kraig 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.

    This is the third bar I have built and I just love the BR550 mahogany rail. Came fast and in perfect condition.

    I searched all across the internet for a ‘chicago style’ bar rail. The radius corners set Hardwoods Incorporated above all others. The installation was easy and they look fantastic. Paul even went above and beyond and helped me find a 8′ length (16″ width) single board of wormy chestnut for the bartop (which is not an easy piece of wood to find)! I couldn’t have built my bar without him. I would definitely recommend Hardwoods Incorporated – for their quality products, professionalism, and personal touch – to anyone building a bar. Thank you so much!

    Top quality milled wood products. We ordered the bar top kit, front pieces, Chicago bar rail and radius corner all in cherry. The customer support, online instructions and tips are the best. Great product and great customer service!
