  1. Here is a railing section with the painting complete. Black with copper highlights.
  2. Built 2 matching balcony railings that will got on a building in Downtown Kellogg, Id. Hand drawn design, which i then text a pic to the customer for approval...... i do this because that is as advanced as I get. I don't do CAD..... I do hot steel. My apprentice and I then hand forged all the scrollwork and organic elements and laid them out. Once we got the 2 matching main panels done then we started on the 4 matching side panels. I am really happy about this project and how it turned out. It took about 90 hours to produce. I will post pictures of it installed. I have an instagram account that I post 90% of my work on if you want to keep up with what is going on in my forge.
  3. Well, This project was for 44ft of branch railing. I got about half way done when the trailer I had the stuff stored in got stolen.....so i had to start all over..... But, it had to be done so, done it got. The section had to fit into an existing railing. It took 6-8 hrs per foot to produce a finished railing and install it. But it was a good summer job and my daughter worked in the smithy 4 days a week helping and that was fantastic time to spend with her. 13 years old and is efficient using all the equipment in the smithy. So....... all total 1500 ft of bar stock, hours of texturing, fitting, welding, grinding......lol life of a metal worker.
  4. I just finished and installed this railing its 14 ft long in 3 sections took me 100 hours from start to install. The customer wanted a thicket of branches that looked real and had no 4" holes so the railing would meet code. It was hand sanded and waxed. I had to weld and grind over 150 "nublets" (cut off branches) the railing took 400 feet of round rod ranging from 1 1/4" down to 3/8" I was very happy to finish the railing and move on to some thing else but I got a call the day before install and another customer saw my web site and ordered 43' of this railing. I changed the design a bit but it will take about 300 hours for the next job............ not the most technical work but it is an art form and it takes time to put it all together fitting each branch properly.
  5. This is a stair railing I've just finished and installed for a customer in Co. Leitrim, Ireland. It's all hand forged with pass throughs, ball nuts and rivets. It was partly inspired by the willow that grows around my customers cottage, and partly by the idea of a slinky flowing down the steps.
  6. Here is another picture of progress on a log railing removal and replacing with forged metal railing.
  7. Here is a railing job I did that the client wanted the design to match the wall sconces, but not be to gaudy. So this is what I came up with - Scrolls on each end are made up of 10ft of 1" round bar. The client insisted I sign the railing somewhere so I stamped my name and date on it. The railing panel sits between 6" x 6" cedar posts that make up the top and bottom rail(The cedar was installed previously, I just designed and built the Panel). Railing panel was primed, painted flat black, antiqued with copper then clear coated.
  8. Here is a picture that you can see 6 of the 7 sections of scrolled railings I made after installing. The other section is just out of sight on the left, about a 12" wide section on the other side of the stairway opening. Ready for the wood rail cap now.
  9. a newel post of silicone bronze and mild steel, just before final polishing. installed in a winery.
