This is a porch rail I seen on the internet .I Did change it slightly but not much.It is made of pressure treated pine.I really liked the way it turned out but would like to see what everyone else thinks of it.There was a lot of cutting and sanding but i think it was worth it.

Nice job. I have a porch we need to put up railings on, I’ll keep this idea in the back of my mind!

Very nich job on the rails. I have fallen in love (so to speak) with the victorian look. The on point, if I may. The natural look of the rails and the white painted posts did cause me a second look. Now I’m not looking at the whole picture and the post were most likely already there. That being said, still a very nice job and treatment of using natural wood wioth the victorian touch.

Just my thoughts.

Well the owner already had the columns set on the porch.And they come in already primed white .The owner is also going to paint the rails and pickets white.So in time it will all be painted a bright white.This is my first attempt at this style but i really like it.Thanks for the comments i really appreciate it.

That old style “gingerbread” work really sets a house or feature off. I did some of that on my back porch when I built it a few years ago. It is not quite so nice as this. Great job.
