Custom Branch Table

This custom branch table was built to fit the space! The homeowner wanted a coffee table to go with the leather couch in the picture but a rectangular table would have stuck out into the walking area. This special trapezoid design allows for free and unrestricted movement around the living room but also has a long edge facing the couch for lots of space. The long edge was measured to fit the homeowner’s precise measurements. Check out more rustic furniture here.

And as you can see, it turned out wonderfully!

Curved Railing

The latest from the master woodworkers at the Wood Railing shop is this curved railing section. This handrail, along with two others like it, have almost 11 inches of arc to them. I bet it was a fun project to frame the circular deck that these are going on! It’s certainly been a fun project to build handrails for.

Tall Handrail Section

Check out this tall interior wood railing. Like all Mountain Laurel Handrails, this was custom made to the owner’s specifications. The homeowner was looking for a special design element to add to her New Hampshire ski home and this was just the ticket! These tall sections are five feet tall and will be installed inside on a loft balcony. For extra added safety, the homeowner will install a piece of plexiglass on the face of the railings. Normally, laurel branches stick out from either side of the handrail but in this case, the branches were left flush or set in from the front of the railing so that the polycarbonate plexiglass can be installed easily.
