Someone did a search for craftsman banister and Google delivered this new client to me. Thanks Lumberjocks! Here is a new version of the other one of my banisers that I created especially for the new client.
The quarter-sewn oak was especially tough to sand out! This is very hard wood. The final result was very satisfying. The biggest issue was that this mostly had to be hand sanded, starting at 60 grit. Some spots took hours of hand sanding for just an inch square area!
The overall size of this is 13×13 x 1.5 inches.
Hope you enjoy, and let me know what you think, of course. The client requested that I not put a finish or stain on it, as her carpenter will do that, when it is installed. When I get photos, I’ll share those.
