I finally finished the bar. The wood was perfect and we are very pleased with the results. We are really glad we went with wood vs granite for the bar top. Your tips on joining the boards and cutting the miter joint were very helpful. I did a few test runs and it turned out well. I ended up staining it with an oil based stain (mixed mahogany and walnut) and then finished it with multiple coats of waterlox. I still have a few details to finish (foot rail, etc) but I’ve attached a few photos of the finished bar top as promised. Thanks for your help!

Paul,

I just wanted to thank you for including that extra inch on the bar rail a few weeks ago and let you know how it turned out.

When we went to install it, we had exactly 3/8″ to spare! We trimmed it up and it slid right in. It looks fantastic!

Also, all of the helpful hints on the website were greatly appreciated. By the time I got done reading/watching all of the instructions and related hints, I was fully prepared and didn’t encounter any nasty surprises. Frankly, it may have been one of the easiest parts of the project.

I am sanding things down now in preparation for staining.

Thanks again.
