Stairway project - Part 1, the spindles

I am estatic to report, the stairway project is commencing!

Meet Ken, stairway installer extraordinaire. And he isn't allowed out of 'rustic metal spindle' jail until he's done. Ah, just kidding Ken. You can go home to eat and stuff.

And you know those spindles I just mentioned? I fabricated them. Simply because, the look I wanted wasn't available in stores anywhere. I wanted rustic metal steel rods to tie in with the rest of the metal influences I have going on. So that step came first.

So off I went to my favorite local workshop. (Dan's place) He showed me what to do and left the room. For the most part anyway. Care to see what transpired?

How do you like THOSE fireworks? I had the MOST fun ever on that day. Not only cutting my own steel rods, but filming it too, as a tutorial for my decorating blog. So, here's the noisy version of the building of the spindles. Welcome to my favorite kind of playground. EVER. :) Thanks Dan!!

Next, stair case woodwork, by Ken! Stay tuned!
