Deck Railing with Custom Newel Post

Here’s a picture you may not have seen before. This one shows a deck railing with a custom newel post made from a wide diameter mountain laurel branch. The branches of the handrail weave are carefully cut to match the contours on the large stick. The 1x4s that hold the weave in place are also carefully cut to fit special pockets, called mortises, that are cut into the stick. It is time-consuming work but the end result is a beautifully crafted piece of rustic art for your deck.
