We recently finished the construction of an unusual stair railing. The homeowner wanted a unique look and a style to complement his home. The newel posts are solid douglas fir and distressed for an aged look. The top and bottom rails and the cross members are 2 x 6 alder that has been distressed as well. The truly unusual part of the railing is the metal screen placed between the posts. This allows the railing to meet building codes but it also give the railing a farm yard look. The stair ends are finished off with wood end caps, risers and a skirt board mitered to the risers. As you can tell from the pictures a stair railing can make a dramatic statement to the look and feel of your home. With all of the options available to you, your railing can be one of a kind and add value to your home.
