  • Indoor handrail

    Heres a handrail I just finished for a lady. It took me about 2 weeks to do, everyday after work and on the weekends.

      Real nice stuff, what did you use for paint?

      What did you use for the scroll?

      Thanks Bernie

              Excellent! That's quite impressive. Can you share how it was made? We'd like the details, please.

              How long have you been building stuff like this?

                Details on the handrail

                I do have the tooling to make the scrolls, but due to time constraints, I opted to buy all rails, ballusters, baseplates, scrolls etc etc. I actually havnt made but two handrails since ive started this metalworking side job stuff. I have found that it truly is very very rewarding to see the faces of the customer when they finally see the stuff in the finished form, and in their home. I would like nothing more than to be able to quit my full-time job and persue this as a career. Maybe someday. I would also like to master the TIG technique, and really make my work stand out. But for now my MM210 should do ok. The customer who's house this stuff is in paid a Faux finisher to do the paint. It has some places where she missed, so they need to retouch some spots. BUT, it looks good overall, and enhances what Ive already done. Its a kind of Bronzie, Brown color. I have pics of some other creations, and I will post soon to show my new found buddies here in the message board. I want to extend a thanks to all who give their many years of wisdom to us newbies, and guide us through out trials and tribulations of "welding", or in my case..........sticking, porosity, blow-through, etc etc. Thanks again

                  that's beautifull. Makes me wish I had some stairs.

                  I don't hink I need a pool fence quite that ornate, but that is really some inspiration.

                          Great work on the railings. I'm doing one now, with my HF scroll bender. Have you tried KING metals for stuff?? I see they have a yard in L.A. If so, how do the compare?

                            Hi Rocky D

                            Umm, ya know I didnt even know about them until now. they are much closer to my house. The jansens place sell high end ornamental iron, and are generally higher than their competitors. the reason I go there is the customer service is great, and they speak english to boot. Unfortunately here in Los Angeles, the majority of the people doing the wrought iron stuff are spanish and speak little english. Including the sales people. So I go where I can talk to someone and understand just what the **** they are trying to say!! Im sure for you down in San diego its the same if not worse. Can you send me some pics of your handrail work?? Do you do handrails alot?? I sure could use some pointers on making the design, layout, etc on these things. Another thing. I turned down a job due to it was a spiral staircase. Are there ANY kind of instructional tools available for people like me just starting out?? Like measuring guides, code regulations etc etc.
                            Thanks alot for the link to King. Take care

                              Very Nice.
                              Would you mind telling us what materials cost, and how many hours you have into this. And what the nice lady paid for the job?
