So, I own a 1913 Victorian cottage. The railings are original and are some kind of geometric/art deco looking pattern out of 2X2s. The posts, however, are a lovely turned profile.
Now I’ve built my back porch addition and turned a post on my Fay & Scott to match the profile on the front porch.
I’m wondering what kind of profile you guys would recommend to compliment the post. I suppose it could be a scaled down replica of the post itself? I’ve never seen this, though.
Attaching some pics:
And here is how the existing railings look. (Maybe I should leave well enough alone and copy this on the back porch. Though they are in rough, heavily leaded condition.)
