Nicely done and looks sturdy. How are the twigs anchored? Are they inset on the bottom rail and done the same on the upper?

The twigs are morticed in top & bottom. A few fifferent sized forstner bits, a lot of patience! I like to get the projects like that, and take my time to get it right. Back then, our normal deck crew was too concerned with production time to do a custom job, I took the railing phase over from them

A good chainsaw can solve this problem. Honestly, I can see how this is very difficult to do. One of my pieces is a picture frame out of maple tree branches, and it was tough to cut the straight parts for the glass, matting and picture to fit it. I can only imagine the fun you had here. Great job.

socalwood, the bottom holes are drilled all the way through, and the twigs pinned through the rail with a galv. finish brad. That way water flows through
