Rustic Barnwood Railing

It’s always a pleasure working with creative homeowners who entrust us to build amazing creations for their homes, but this one is extra-special…

And, it’s only the beginning!

The homeowner loved the Mountain Laurel Handrails but decided that she wanted a much more rustic feel and a totally unique look.

While discussing different wood types and species, I recommended some wood from an old barn that had been recently salvaged. I though that this would be a perfect fit for what she had in mind, so I sent her some pictures; she agreed.

The next step was the addition of the carved birds which the homeowner provided. These were tricky to integrate into the weave of the railing, but the finished look is as if Audobon is watching them in the forest!

And, as promised, there’s more to come. Once the project is installed, I’ll be back to share the finish pictures which have rustic Mountain Laurel Newel Posts in addition to some more carved wood creations!

    I absolutely love the combination of the rustic wood with the railings, the combination works well together. Down here in FL. we have sparkle berry trees, could that be a replacement from the Laurel as it has a gorgeous red tinge to it?

    James these are beautiful and unique. Your best ones yet!

  3. Olga Pader says:

    Your medium is novel but you are creating sculptures that can be enjoyed by many and daily.

    Dear Jimmy:
    How you come up with all these different ideas is a mystery since you didn’t get that from me. I wonder about the brain chemistry that goes into creative ideas – yours must be in full throttle.
    Love, Dad

  5. jan brown says:

    Awesome idea! Agree with posted comment that “footwork” could be improved. Keep on refining your concept. The birds add even more visual interest to a fabulous product.

  6. Laurel Vadala says:

    The owner gets the final say on the design and we love it. Don’t change a thing.

    Thanks,

    Laurel and Mike Vadala

  7. David Milne says:

    Jim, these birds itting on wood blocks is cheesy. Figure out a way to make it look like the birds have feet and are attached directly to teh ballisters in a life like manner.

    Your stuff is really cool.

  9. Laurel Vadala says:

    James,

    We are thrilled with the design and can’t wait to have it installed. You are truly an artist and I would recommend your work to anyone. Thsnks for taking our random ideas and turning them into something that we will enjoy for a lifetime.
