Our quality handmade barres are sold in 8' lengths as either finished or unfinished. They may also be cut down to custom lengths if there is a need for a shorter barre. Finished barres are coated with 3 coats of polyurethane for a clean and furniture finish. Unfinished barre material is raw Maple and may be stained or finished by the customer or left to acquire the oil and patina of years of use. If left unfinished the barres tend to become very dark and accumulate dirt from the hands of students.
