This is a traditional railing with unconventional twists. The cap rail is a 2 1/2" wide oversize rail that is hand forged in our shop. We hand twisted these pickets from 5/8" square bar. Both the straight and twisted pickets were hammered to chamfer the corners for added texture. The newel posts are 1 1/4" square and were hand hammered and twisted as well. The finish is a natural mill finish that has been wire brushed and coated with a clear sealer. This finish is not recommended for exterior use.
The cap rail was made using the same process as this video http://youtu.be/viMnzuRns5Y
