How To Install Custom Railing Millwork
This video I hosted and article I wrote by Daniel Westbrook, is about how to use off the shelf millwork, for a custom railing installation. It uses off the shelf trim millwork moldings and uses slight modifications for a more custom application and look. I explain how to layout proper spacing for balustrades, and show all all the millwork is cut and installed for a custom look in one of my basement remodels in Seattle. The real key to any carpenters success is using a book to write down and keep track of material, layout, and design through the process. As well as a desire to never stop learning!
Here is an excerpt:
“One of the most rewarding experiences I’ve had as a carpenter is the satisfaction of implementing a design, admiring the final product, and seeing how it beautifies a space. It’s a real privilege to be the hands-on vehicle that designers and homeowners rely on to ensure their vision becomes reality. A carpenter’s knowledge is critical in understanding how off-the-shelf standard millwork can be modified to create a custom look”
