Wow! That is fantastic. I love the use of 5/4 planks as ballusters.
Beautiful design and execution. That is a real gem of a project that will forever improve the home.

I would like to have seen the original, but the design is very prairie school and fits the house beautifully. Wonderful design and craftsmanship.

I had to look at it a couple of times to make sure there weren’t 2 rows of spindles. The effect is really amazing. I’m thinking about shamelessly plagarizing this when I make the railing for the stairs at the new house we are moving into.

The original railing was made from builder’s grade stained poplar posts and spindles… it was falling apart, and it was also very ugly ;)
The clients were asking for a stain color similar to what they have in their house. They provided an oil based stain, and after trying it out on a sample piece of the quartersawn oak I decided to go with a dye instead.

The posts are bolted to the concrete floor with 5/8” metal rods.
