Twisted tree stump Balustrade

In 2018 I was asked to make a custom balustrade for a set of stairs. They wanted something that was organic in shape and that suited their home. The main challenge was how to fit it around their stairs and setting it in place. I spent a bit of time carefully measuring the area and planning how to have the roots flow over the edge of the stairs.
After many hours of carving, sanding and finish, I had the piece ready to install. 
Its rare to have a perfect installation but this one dropped in without any adjustments needed. The rod and the screws held it in place without much movement and will be fully locked off when the rail is installed. Another very happy customer.
