 Rik,  Just finished installing the Foot Bar & Brackets. I just love it! Can't wait to show my family & friends. Also like the horse hair brush, cloth & ash tray that you sent us as well. Thank you so much Rik. It's everything I was hoping for to finish my project & I'm very happy with it. Thank You,

Hey Rik,

 Ah man, it came out great!  It really made the bar...!We had a Christmas party this weekend (that I was scrambling to get everything ready for) and people could not stop talking about that rail! Everyone loved it, no one had seen anything like it, and they all said a regular standard smooth shiny rail would have ruined the look. It is very comfortable as well...height, distance, diameter, etc.

Love it!

 Thanks again,

Mike

 Hi! Rik,

 Here are the pictures of the bar and it looks fantastic.  We can’t thank you enough for doing this for us and to actually pull it off by phone and email was quite a feat.  You have an unbelievable talent (I hope you are passing your knowledge along).  When anyone comes over (for inspections and such) while Jim King is working he always shows it to everyone.  He absolutely just loves it.  I also want to thank you for the forged bowl it is absolutely beautiful.  Proud Cut was an awesome recommendation. The steak was really good and those shrimp were unbelievably huge.  We’ll have to go back up your way again.  Again, thank you for everything and if I ever think of anything else that could be made with brass or iron I will definitely give you a call.  Take care.

Hello Rik,

I love it. Once the brackets and the bar rail get installed I will be sure to get some high res digital photos and send them to you.

Good morning Rik,

It’s really cold today in central Florida, 60 degrees is our high for the day!  We got the foot rail installed, very easy.  I wasn’t sure how you were going to ship it and when the create arrived I was pleasantly surprised, it made handling so easy.  The foot rail looks 10 times better than I imaged and it’s the perfect finish to our outdoor bar/kitchen.  The best compliment I get is “…where did you find this, it’s so cool”.

 I’ll send you some pictures and I think you’ll agree that the 3” rail was the perfect complement to the area.  Once again, thank you very much for everything!

 Regards,

Steve

Rik, Finally uncrated the rail and installed it Tuesday. Looks great and the combo brackets all landed flush to the vertical and horizontal surfaces. Really nice workmanship. I have welded enough to know how hard it is to keep a part in position when heating and cooling metal. Great job. Man, that thing is heavier than I expected it to be! Thanks again.

Hi Rik, we have been long done with the Wine Cellar, Tasting Room, Home Theater and Pool Hall.  The Tasting Room has the wonderful foot rail in it.  Your marketing piece to reward me to send you pictures has worked.  Whether the pictures will be worth it or not I am not sure.

I was putting things away in the shop and ran into the great little burlap bag with the forged bowl and realized that I had not sent you any thing, as I had promised.  Here are some proofs of  the professional shots that we had taken.  Take a look and let me know if there are any that may interest you and I will send you high res images.  The images that you receive will need to be given credit to the photographer,  Dane Gregory Meyer.  I loved the piece and like wise the client. Thank You and let me know if there are any shots that you may be able to use.

P.S.

I was very impressed by the way that you packaged your shipment and the care with which it was handled.  It was like opening a present.  Let every one concerned know what a great job they did.

Take care

Hi Rik – The bar rail was installed & so far so good!  We like how everything was shipped, the screws bag, care & maintenance, etc.  The only thing that we have to do is cut the rail about 3” – This has nothing to do w/ you & is related to site issues.

Rik,

thanks for checking.  The workmanship is outstanding.  Just as advertised.  The dimensions worked out perfectly.  Just as hoped.  I am trying to decide how to proceed on one issue.  The patina on the rail is more of a "coppery color" than I was looking for.  The actual "legs" or "stands" are more of the bronze/antique brass color I am looking to achieve.

 I've done some research on natural patina for bronze.  It seems that the color is determined by the finishing chemical that is used?  I'm assuming you use a hot patina process?  Really the legs are the perfect color and tone but the rail is more coppery.  Any ideas?

 I have to say the way you fabricated the pieces is great.  The collars to join the parts with fully welded leg attachment detail make for a fantastic final product.  I currently have the rail free standing along the bar until I decide on any color solution.  Also the distressed finish is great as well.

 Thanks again for any advice.  I do know that once bolted to the floor I probably have the most substantial bar rail on the East Coast!

 All the best, Jim

Rik,
 I was on the job when the footrail was installed. First, I was impressed with the crate in which it was shipped, I thought it would have been at least three crates. Then, once we saw the way they were numbered, pre-drilled and taped, we knew the install would be flawless. I started at the piece that was bent for the angle, which fit perfectly, and worked towards both ends without any problems at all. The radius pieces also fit perfectly. I will send pictures later.
Thanks,

Foot rail looks great and we had no problem installing it.....
 
If I had it to do again I might add 4 inches to the left side....I wanted
that side a little short because there is a much used walking area,,,
oh well, I've been looking for an extra few inches all my life...
 
We love your rail,hopefully we'll sell a few more for you....

Not happy with it . . . thrilled with it.  The wife wasn't happy with me spending that amount of money right now, and so she's saying that she doesn't like it (but everybody else says they love it's looks). So I think it's just a matter of time before she tells me to order a rail for her side of the desk.
 
Also, talk about packing.!!  Your packing could have taken a direct hit from a tank shell and survived unscathed.

Hey Rik – I have to say I’m blown away by how good it looks.  It’s awesome!  Your timing is perfect as well since the painting will be done next week and be ready to install the bar rail.

I just wanted to say again how great it looks and how much I appreciate your efforts.  I’ll send some pictures when we get it installed.

Thanks,

Rik,
The quality and astetics are more than I could have ever of hoped for. You did a truly amazing job. There were extra bolts included in the box. Were those for securing it to the concrete?

Hi Rik – Sorry it has taken so long to get back to you.  We’ve installed the bar rail and it looks great.  I’ve attached a few pictures for you to see.   Thanks again for such great work.   I’ve already had many, many compliments on it.

They love the end results and are amazed what difference the foot rail and distressed pedestal/straps makes.

Thanks again and so glad the Emges are pleased with the end results. Your work is top notch.

Best regards.

Hi Rik, Its all set up and looks fantastic!  Your are an amazing artist sir.  I really appreciate your work and constant communication and helpfulness throughout this process.  I have one more picture to send u you in a minute and I will take a coupe nicer one so you can add it to your website portfolio as you see fit.  Its probably a nice example of how high quality even a smaller, home job like mine (loft of a barn) can be. 

It truly makes the room and It's even significantly more awesome than I had even imagined it would be - Wow !  I'm very pleased to say the least.Finally, thanks also for the nice metal bowl you provided as well.  I immediately used it as a special ashtray for my favorite pipe when I had a few friends over yesterday, and they loved it as well.  lease feel free to use me as a reference for anyone who would like to hear a very satisfied customer experience!

Hi Rik, thanks for getting this bar rail done for me. It looks fantastic and all the measurements were perfect. Very high quality and well done. Thanks for the extra bowl, cleaning instructions, cloth and brush too. The bar was very well packed as well and arrived in great condition.  Can't wait to show it off at our Oktoberfest party coming up soon. Best regards,

Steve
