Turned Balusters are a good choice for porches with round columns. Note the use of Kickspace Blocks beneath each section of balustrade to prevent sagging.

The postion of the columns on either side of the steps did not permit attaching stair rails directly to the columns. The solution is even more decorative. Short railing sections terminate in Newel Posts at the top of the steps. Newels on the bottom step receive the balustrade going down the stairs.

Sloped-top Bottom Rail secures notched Balusters. The visual effect is pleasing. The ability to shed water is critical. We don't know if K. used our Spinner technique for painting his Balusters, but the paint job is first class!

If a jig saw is used to cut a curve into the ends of each Rail matching the curve of the column, then installing balustrades between round columns is relatively simple.

8 year update: "I wanted to follow up that it has been 8 years since I rebuilt my porch. The balusters, posts and railings have held up extremely well. In fact, I have not had to paint or even touch up any of the materials that I purchased from you. I am very happy with everything."

Back Porch: More recently, Keith sent two photos of more work he's done on his home. The Back Porch shown above is a perfect match for the front porch!
