One of the coolest things we do here at JD Stairs in make custom metal Handrails. We do this in many forms but this week I’m attaching a picture of one in the rough stage. This is a forged metal handrail design. That means that each one of the curls you see in this design has to be heated up until it is red hot. This makes the steel malleable enough to created the pointed ends and tight curls by beating it with a forgers hammer.
Once the ends have been formed, we use various mold the curve the steel into the desired shape. Once we are all done welding and grinding all the steel smooth it will get a powder coated finish. You can see in the picture we are test fitting this handrail just before shipping it off the be powder coated.
