General Dado Rail Information

A good timber merchants will carry a couple of examples but if they don’t have a website, you may have to go there yourself, to choose which one you want, or more correctly, the lady of the house will like. Get the builder to collect them on the day though because they need to be long enough to span each wall without any joints and you won't be able to get them in your A Class Mercedes or Smart Car.
