Thanks to Google Analytics, I learned today that the woven branch style is also popular in Russia, where it’s called “перила из веток”. According to Google Translate, this means ‘Railing of the Branches’ which seems to me to be a great description of the style. Of course, it figures that in a place with such a large amount of forest, and a grand tradition of log homes and woodworking, that this would also be a popular style. And, there’s plenty of time in the winter to work on these kinds of crafts!

This picture is a sample of Russian craftsmanship. I’m curious to know what kind of wood they used. I have absolutely no idea how to pronounce перила из веток but I would like to try! I’d also like to hear the thoughts of all my Russian readers in the comments section!
Take a look at the latest style of coffee table! This is another custom order that was built to match an existing space as well as a Mountain Laurel Handrail on the stairs and loft of the great room. Contact today to get started on your custom coffee table.
Mountain laurel handrails feature the most unique deck balusters that you’ve seen. Sticks and branches from mountain laurel trees are saved from land clearing activities and repurposed into rustic works of art. These branch handrails take their shape from each individual stick. Nature crafts the forms and it is the artisan’s work to meld them into forms that are pleasing to the eye. Since each stick has its own shape, the work takes on its own form and the carpenter just guides itinto place somewhat like a sailboat captain has to work the wind or a sawyer has to know how the log will cut. The skilled craftsmen at Wood Railing take nature’s forms and create deck balusters that will have your neighbor’s asking, “Where did you get that handrail?”

Many homes feature a grand staircase as the focal point of a great room. And oftentimes these stairs are finished with precise woodworking. But too often, the handrail for stairs gets overlooked and the balusters end up as boring pickets or turned spindles going up and down from tread to banister. A thoughtful staircase design acknowledges that an intricate and beautiful balustrade is the most important factor in the look of a stairway.
The Wood Railing crew took a ride down to Atlanta recently to install a small project with some curved railings on a balcony. This is a beautifully rebuilt home on the lake with quite a bit of history. The current owner’s father built a house on the property in the 1950s which had been outgrown and was in need of improvement. The contractor building the new home was just beginning his career as a carpenter and helped build the old house. Continue Reading…
