This was a custom home I built a few years back.
Talk about a scary staircase. I was 24 years old at the time, only a couple years out of college.
That was my first experience with bending rail. What a great project to have under the belt.

Looks great.
bending a railing really brings into play the meaning of not having enough clamps!

Stunning. Really nice job. It pains me to see carpet upstairs with that beatiful maple below. Awesome work.

Youve definately got that right CampD.
I bought out 3 lumberyards here in town. Sorry to anyone who came in after me looking for a 4, 5, or 6 inch C-clamp.

AWESOME! That’s a fantastic accomplishment at an early stage. Remember, the scarier the challenge, the greater feeling of accomplishment and pride when it’s completed. Keep up the fantastic work and thanks for sharing.

Looks great. Question for you. I’ve always wondered how this is done and I’m guessing it’s steam bent and clamped to forms, is that right? Well, it’s impressive in any case. Nice work.
