These are new log hand rails i built over the last couple of months. My wife and I went up to Stockton,Mo. and harvested the cedar from downed trees. We have always loved log cabins and wanted to add atouch of the outdoors inside. I power washed the bark off with a swivel tip and cleaned up the logs with various tools. We then took the logs into the garage to dry. From there i used a delta drill press to bore angled holes and a 2” self pull bit in a 1/2 in. drill to bore straight holes. All of the tenons where cut and shaped with an old draw knife. From there I ground, sanded, put on sanding sealer and 2 coats of laquer. The stairs themselves i built out of anothony power beams that are 3 1/8th in. by 12 in. beams, very beafy looking.
