Porch railing in

Update: (Yes, observant friends, railings will be added on the sides.)

Blair from Howling Dog Construction built this railing from scratch.

They are made of eight million tiny pieces. Each spindle sits in a groove with a tiny piece of wood filling the groove between each spindle. I know this because I painted these suckers.

I have no idea why someone would want to spend their time doing this, but thank God he works for me.

That's downtown Omaha in the distance. The brick building on the left is Grace University's dormitory and administration building. A great neighbor.

The old metal columns and railing, which appeared to be 1950s vintage, are headed for the scrap yard. (Need scrap metal pickup? See Scrap happens)
