Spotted Gum Timber Handrail
Monday, September 09, 2013
Spotted Gum is a timber that we try to avoid using, as it is extremely hard on tooling and very difficult to glue together.
Recently though we received a request from a local builder to produce a round timber handrail with a rebate in it. There was quite a large number of metres involved, and it was going into a redeveloped section of a local Adelaide private school.
The size of the handrail was 38mm round, which meant that we were able to use solid 50mm Spotted Gum, instead of having to laminated 2 pieces together and run the risk of it coming apart.
The end result can be seen in the photos below. It should look pretty good on the finished balustrade, once installed.
