Custom iron railing

Today we finished installing a new railing on a patio addition. This is a simple design, but it does have some nice details, like a heavy beveled caprail and forged lambstongue ends.

The rail was made of all solid steel bar and TIG welded together. The 1″ square solid posts were set into holes coredrilled into the bluestone patio. It is one continuous run over approximately 55 linear feet.

The curved section was the most challenging part to fabricate, as the top and bottom rails all had to be heated in the forge and bent on a radius jig.

Shown here are a lambstongue end and a up easing, or gooseneck, both typical features on a stair railing.

This job turned out looking nice and fitting well. The design doesn’t have to be fancy or complicated, good execution looks good regardless.
