Sculpted Staircase Railingcomments (1) November 3rd, 2011 in Project Gallery
I designed and built this sculpted staircase railing in a newly constructed house near Palmer, Alaska. It's made of cherry and black walnut with glass panels. Strips of cherry are bent on the outside of the glass panels like tree branches. The joints are all sculpted and hand shaped as are the hinges for the gates between the two newel posts.
