Turn A Log Into A Hand Rail

Turn A Log Into A Hand Rail

Hand rails are pretty standard these days and we usually just think of them as shaped wood or metal. While they can be a decorative design detail, it's not typical that they really stand out in any spectacular way. We showed you a rope hand rail that was certainly original, but now, we've seen it all in this log turned hand rail.

The idea shouldn't be as surprising as it is, after all, cabin builders have most likely been doing this for years. This particular hand rail is shown in a country cabin and while it definitely looks right at home, this project is extremely versatile. The hand rail would be a welcomed rustic surprise in a modern, urban environment — it would ease the sterility of clean lines and redundant textures.
