Continuous Handrail.

An elderly customer required a continuous handrail from the top to the
bottom of a winding staircase. This was essential as they found it
difficult to let go and remain steady before grabbing the next
section. By providing this handrail the customer can now use the
upstairs rooms as they were confined essentially to the ground floor.
The mopstick handrail I painted and finished in white satin prior to
fitting. Brackets are satin chrome which match the door handles and
most other ironmongery items in the property.
The distance from the wall and the handrail was another factor to
consider as space was a premium so 63mm projection brackets were used.

Traditional standards. Traditional tradesman. Traditional service. I have been a carpenter for over 45years, 5 year apprenticeship as a boat builder, 2 years as a wood machinist, then a spell repairing furniture and manufacturing reproduction antique clocks. I spent a further 15 years working in a therapeutic environment passing on my skills, before setting myself up as a self-employed carpenter/joiner. As you will appreciate, I undertake a wide range of projects, so scrolling through the site map may well direct you to past work that may be similar to your requirements. The preferred way to contact me is by using the contact page on this site. However you can always ring me during normal working hours. Lead times vary depending on the time of year; small jobs I can often do promptly. I cover Southampton and I am also happy to visit Winchester and Salisbury areas, but a small fee will be charged.
