This project came to me last July. My client wanted to replicate the fence which surrounded his family home on the capes of Mass. 1st picture is the original posts finial, 5-1/2” dia. x 1-’0”. For all of the gluing process I used “The West System” epoxy. I had never used tis system before, but it is a straight forward system. Easy to use. 2nd picture shows the turned finial, glued up w/ 3- 2×6 & 2- 1×6. 3rd picture shows the finials being glued to the turned posts, which are 4-1/2” dia. x 5’-6” tall, glued up w/ 3- 2×6. the posts had a 2 1/2” dia. mortise to receive the tenon on the finial. 4th picture shows the finished post, there were 6 total. 5th picture shows the 6’-5” rail w/ the tenon being turned on each end. 6th picture shows the 15 finished rails.
