We had to pull off our other jobs this week to do a quick replacement of some old log railing that had just gotten to that point... Even well made and well maintained Cedar log railing will eventually begin to rot and the old stuff here had been up for probably twenty years and had become unsafe.

The railings are on the decks of an old log home in the Ely Minnesota area.We used smaller Northern White Cedar poles, peeling them each individually with a draw-knife and then shaping each one to make the posts, rails and spindles. These railings are now completed and ready for staining.

Here are some pictures of the newly installed railing on a beautiful, sunny, blue sky, Ely Minnesota day on Burntside Lake.

It was a beautiful week for baseball this past week. Sunny and in the 60s.
Ely varsity was in Hermantown on Thursday... Here is a link to the story.
