I made this bar rail with a radius router bit and the TS. It’s from 8/4 Red Oak.

Nice looking bar rail, if I drank I’d be honored to get sloshed at that bar. By the way isn’t that the 25th infantry patch, the wolfhounds? jockmike

Mike – Thanks for the compliment. No, the patch is for Special Forces.

Nice looking bar rail. I am starting on a bar project for the local VNV MC and wondered how you made it and if you could give me any pointers. I really don’t want to buy railing from a manufacturer…for one it’s to expensive. Thanks.

Thanks for the compliment. The cove was done on the table saw, and the radius was done with a 3/4” radius router bit.

looks great!

-- - Jei, Rockford IL - When in doubt, spray it with WD-40 and wrap it with duct tape. The details will attend to themselves.

I’ll try and post some pics in the next couple of days. I made about 18’ of Chicago Style bar rail out of 3 different pieces, including 3/4” ply on the underside, and you’d never know it.. It took a while, but it was way cheaper than buying premilled for $12 a linear foot, and I didn’t have to buy and extra thick stock.

Bob…I would love to see some pics of that bar rail. I’m getting ready to skin this monster so it won’t be long before I start in on all of the finish work and an inexpensive bar rail would be a relief. thanks.
