wave & tendril railing

| | |

Couple of snaps of parts of a railing we pre-fitted last week.  The woodwork is yet to be finally sanded so we have not permanently installed, the railing had been sitting in the shop finished for 2months & we had to go and discuss lighting fixtures so it was a good opportunity to snag the railing too.  Hauled the darn thing up and down 3 flights of stairs and having to re-pack the truck with it didn't feel all that great but it went in just like it was supposed to so can't complain, now its under plastic in the shop till the wood's finished.  Will look better with it's walnut cap rail.


Exterior clear finish

We have recently tried clear Permalac on some exterior ironwork and it seems to be holding up well. The pieces were not heavily forged, more bent and a clean wire-brushed look was what we were after.

Railing Design - Corner detailWe’ve got an L-shape railing underway where the corner will include an element facing diagonally outwards, kind of like a ship’s figurehead and here are some pics showing the start of that element.
