Very nice. I’m curious how the vertical lattice pieces are joined to the horizontal rails. Ditto for the tiny blocks between the vertical pieces.

The rail really dresses up the entry way. Nice job!

I have been contemplating a similar project, fortunately for me on about a third of the scale of yours. I’m curious if your spacing was based on any kind of specification for child safety.

The play between the frames and the windows and door is very nice. Do I detect some Prairie School influence?

Impressive. For strength did you half lap the styles and rails. What direction are you going with finish?

I like the A&C look, the railing looks good against the tall windows.
