What are Mountain Laurel Handrails?Mountain Laurel Handrails are a traditional form of artistic expression that I discovered while living in the Smoky Mountains of Western North Carolina. These wood handrails use the branches of the mountain laurel tree which are naturally curved in wonderful shapes.
What are preassembled handrail sections?Preassembled sections arrive ready-to-install. The handrail sections are one side of boards with the mountain laurel sticks attached. The boards on the other side and the top handrail are installed on site. This is so that your installer can hide fasteners in the railing.
How are they made?
Handrails are typically made with a red cedar 2×4 board on the top and bottom. Mountain laurel sticks are fastened to these boards and woven together with each other.

Mountain Laurel Handrails are unique guardrails for residential and commercial buildings, working well for both remodels/renovations and new construction. These woven branch railings are custom-crafted by skilled artisans in the Great Smoky Mountains and delivered to job sites nationwide.
There is no better or easier way to instantly enhance the exterior façade and curb appeal of a building. Each railing section is built to specification and the typical railing can be modified to match any design. Custom options include dimensional lumber species, stain or paint on the sticks, modified railing design, log rails and mortise-and-tenon joinery.
Mountain Laurel Handrails are a perfect fit for a rustic styled, log or timber frame building. Since handrail sections arrive preassembled and ready-to-install, AND are easily installed by a skilled carpenter, construction cycle time is shortened and labor costs are significantly less than site-built systems.
