Stairway Revived and New Handrail

We completed a stairway and handrail job. The homeowner ripped the carpet off the stairs and took down the base newel post because it was so wobbly. He wanted a more modern look for the handrail. He went with having horizontal bars and we made the newel posts and new handrail. For the steps we installed the stair treads and risers. The homeowner was quite delighted to have a more solid handrail! 😊

The Cat Scratch “Post”

This homeowner was in need of new newel posts. Her cat claimed them and sculptured them.

We were able to make them and install them.

Sanding and prepping the post.

We then stained and finished the post to match the rest of the hand rail and balusters. We were able to pull out the old newel posts and insert the new ones.

Needless to say, the homeowner put aluminum foil over the new posts to keep the car from sculpturing the new posts.

Old House Window Casing

There is a barn that was converted to a house that the homeowner is sprucing up. There was an oval window that the casing was falling apart. He asked if we could make one to replace it.

We had purchased a truck load of old barn wood that we were able to make the new window casing.

The homeowner was going to put the finish on it himself.

The original was painted white and was falling apart. We made the new one out of old barn wood.
