Finally finished the railings

This project has been on the table for over a year. Too many things going on until I finally put the pieces together. Finding an iron works or supplier was a pain, then designing what I wanted, getting the material, bending it, welding it, cutting the holes, painting the railings.


For a year long project it took -
- 10 minutes to measure (did this several times to make sure I was right)
- draw up what I wanted to make and how it was to look
- take it to the iron works place to see what they had for stock (they wanted $450 to make the railings)
- bring it home, refill the the torch tanks (oxy-acetylene)
- bend the railings, weld them up and paint them
- cut the holes (I used diamond core bit, first one died, second one worked like a dream)
- set the railings with epoxy

Total time including watch the paint dry, 4-5 days

Thanks for looking

Go for it.

The standards or posts are 1” solid iron. There is a cap rail and a “c” rail under the cap rail.

Sometimes the things that we put off ending up being a lot simpler than we anticipated hey? It’s great to see that it worked out for you guys and now you have something handy while going up and down the stairs!
