Installing Bar Nosing


Hello All,

I have a quick question. If the nosing of the bar looks like the picture below would the bar counter top slide into the 2 15/16" flat piece and I would add a 1 1/2" piece of wood on top, or does the bar counter slide into the 5/8" flat piece then I add a perpendicular piece of wood to sit under the lower flat part. Please Help.

I would think that would be a personal preference. Do you want a 1.5" lip at the bar to help with sliding drinks around or would you rather have a more flush finish with the molding? I think it can be installed either way.

Installing Bar Nosing


I don't like ANY lip around a table surface. I find that it tends to collect dirt and grime. On the other hand, it might contain a spill.

Given these preferences, and given your two choices, I think I would tend to minimize the lip, installing the profile on the 5/8" surface.

Installing Bar Nosing


Bar tops are usually doubled-up 3/4. that is what sets into the 1-1/2" notch. Then the substrate it sets on goes into the larger lip to strengthen it. If no substrate, then you screw and glue and added piece to the underside of the finished bar top to support the trim nose.
