Absolutely love it. I painted it in the "McKenzie Childs" style, using multiple colors.(whimsical). Great conversation and complimentary piece from those entering my kitchen. Very well turned piece.
I tried to buy the Country style guard, but it was backordered, and the dates were not consistent with availability. A service tech was able to tell me which styles were currently in stock, so I tried this Traditional Corner Guard, and I am very pleased. A little simpler without the center design area, but in a less 'seen' area of our home, the ends being exact to the country guards already in place allowed it to fit right in. The surface of the hardwood was a tiny bit rough, but one light sanding was enough. Stain and two coats of polyurethane were all it took to give the gloss and a spectacular look - and the protection needed in that spot. A very nice product for a good price. There was a tiny split on one edge - easy to happen on rounded wood pieces, but it was not a problem to smooth and finish with confidence in the piece lasting a good long time.
I have used several of these corner guards and they definately serve their purpose as well as look very nice! I have been pleased with service and product from this company.
fast shipping and exactly what was ordered, got them for 10 bux each cheaper than another site I was looking at.
We needed a substantial wall guard, but wanted it to be stylish as well. When we found these guards, they were just what we were looking for. Now that we've received them, we couldn't be more pleased, As for the sanding others have mentioned, ours required very little. Excellent product and service - thanks!
The product is exactly what I needed to complete a tutor restoration. The 3 available lengths allowed custom application. The oak allowed a more consistant finish then the "hardwood" available at the box stores. However, the finish was not acceptable as delivered, each requiring hours of sanding to remove the tooling marks from the cutting lathe.
I bought them in oak, very nice looking but needed quite a bit of sanding
