Stealth SpeedBrace for Live Edge

William Ruisinger, of Paint Pro, Inc., sent us these pictures and said, “…I am attaching a couple pictures of a project we just completed for a customer. They purchased a large chunk of walnut and wanted to use it as a bar top. They were going to buy these ugly wood brackets to use as supports! I directed them to your website and told them to buy some Stealth Speed Braces. I was very impressed with the quality and simplicity. That top is going nowhere! Thanks again for making some great products!”
