Cruved Stair Case

| |

I finally got pictures of a railing I did a while back. This was my first curved stair railing, and maybe my toughest job to date due to the logistics involved. We were called in late in the construction process and had to build the railing onsite in a condo at the top of a 15 story building, above a brand new(and expensive) wood floor with electrical radiant heating elements underneath, amongst a baby grand piano, glass doored wine cellars at the bottom of the stairs, and half a dozen or so different subcontractors. Each picket probably weighs about 5-8 lbs and had a sharp point, so you can imagine my concern dropping one 15' onto a 3/8"-1/2" thick wood floor or having one slide down the stairs into the wine cellars. It eventually all worked out, but the hurdles involved with the location and coming in late on the job were quite the learning experience. Turned out nice though.

Here are a couple of pictures of a stair rail that was installed today. This was the first curved rail that I have done. Lots of learning there. The home owners are happy with the results and that works for me. The center flower and leaves have guilders paste applied over the paint. The panels are from King Metals.
