Newell and Balustrade

Filed under: Architecture,Materials — Fran Maloney @ 1:09 pm

I replaced a contemporary railing from the 1970s with this one.  The newell is built up on the old 4×4 oak posts.  The railing was an oak 2×6 with flat oak balusters attached to the side.  I removed it and built the knee wall up to the height of the inside skirt.  The balusters are pre-finished pine 1 1/4 inches on a side.  The railing is beech.  The owner intends to give the railing a dark stain and to paint the rest.
