    Answer This Question
    Q:Is the rail made from a single piece of wood or is it made from joined pieces? I ask because a wood rail used previously was made from joined pieces and it eventually broke at two of the joints.

    Answer This Question

    A:  Joined pieces. Nobody makes a solid single piece rail. They will warp over time if not made with layers. The layers have the grain going against each other which helps prevent warping.

      Q:Do you have custom end caps for this rail?

      Answer This Question

      A:  We do not.

      by|Apr 6, 2023

        A:  Anyone buying this railing should note first that it is 1 3/4 in diameter, NOT 1 7/8. While for many applications this isn't critical, it is if you plan to put curved ends or caps on each end of the railing. Caps made for 1 7/8 diameter railing WON'T FIT!

          Why? ends cut so sloppy!
          This wood is very hard and was shipped and wrapped very well to protect it. But how disappointing to install having to take time and extra steps to sand down the ends evenly because they were cut so sloppy.
            Oak Hand Rail But Not Solid Oak
            Expect about 5 years from this product as it's not a solid piece of oak. The hand rail is manufactured from several pieces of oak that are dovetail jointed and glued together. Looks good but, it doesn't last.

              Railing Diameter is 1 3/4" NOT 1 5/8"
              While the wood is good quality, the railing Diameter is 1 3/4" NOT 1 5/8" as stated in the description. For many this won't be critical, but it matters if you are planning on fitting caps or curve railing ends to the pieces!
